I liked the fluffy piece and the grim one. I'd keep fiddling with that one-you are right to not be satisfied-I got the feeling thier was s'posed to be something else involved but not sure what-something about friendship making the load easier to bear, maybe......Hmmmmm..... which isn't to say it isn't good-it is.
Thank you! And yeah, I noticed that too, but despite going over it obsessively a dozen times, couldn't find exactly what it was throwing me off. Still, it was good enough to pass inspection, and hopefully the answer will someday come to me; it's not one of my priority pieces, but maybe I'll be able to figure it out in time.
