I recently heard retiring New Yorker cartoon editor, Bob Mankoff, on the CBC radio show, Q, and then I read his book, "How About Never - Is Never Good For You?" and was inspired. I thought, hey, I can do that. I can do New Yorker style cartoons and join the ranks of my heroes and make a decent living, living my dream.
Then I went to bed and literally dreamed I did just that. I dreamed up a bunch of cartoons and they were crazy and brilliant and fantastic.
Until I woke up. Then, they were largely forgotten, or quite stupid.
I will keep dreaming.
