Dreams of Alice...
Waft in through thickest rain clouds...
Clouds dusted with pink sun hues hiding from behind.
A cool breeze and rain drops tease a parched earth.
Leading me on an early morning journey.
Through dark corridors, where words are scribbled from a feather tip, onto parchment.
Tales and stories that capture all.
Grey light diffused through wavy old windows.
Curious mirrors beckoning you, promising safe passage.
Secret doors and nooks and crannies.
All there for the taking.
Endless flights of imagination.
If you dare.
Alice lives within all and everyone.
Those who travel into her tales.
Those who long for such adventures.
Curious happenings of the most wonderland variety.
Tiny tea and chats with bunny.
Growing tall, then very small.
I dream of times gone by.
Long long agos.
Which these very moments will be one day too.
Jotting down dream stories.
Stories that are lost at first gasp of air from deep sleep.
Lost if you do not capture them quickly as can be.
Thank goodness he captured Alice's adventures perfectly.
Thank you Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.
Aka, Lewis Carroll.
What a great gift he bestowed unto all.
An endless expanding and wonderland gift.
So that today we can still celebrate.
Plotting and planning away.
Our own way of becoming a part of those mad tea party ways.
He was so taken by her.
That Alice girl who inspired such journeys?
If you are a wandering dreamer...
Much like me -
Which I dare guess that you are...?
Then, the gift is infinite because if we wish just so, we can go there too.
To that place where mushrooms grow and grow.
And cats with biggest grins chatter like mad and grin beyond glad.
The first copy...
Of what he planned, for you and you and you and me.
Lots of good this and that's hidden in this little book.
Perfect for inspiring me to hide.
In a secret little writing nook.
Sending snail mail letters to friends far away.
Artists and imaginarians I know so well.
Lovers of fur children and friends telling tales to littles.
A book, a written letter, a written tale.
The page that brought us oh so much and more.
Do you have a favorite happening from Wonderland?
Down that rabbit hole?
One of the greatest gifts of all.
Don't you think?
Are you prepping and looking for mad tea party inspiration?
I am in a dream day, of places far away.
Off I run for now.
See you sooooon!
ps: My sister gave me the most hugest feather headband ever.
She didn't want it anymore, so I gladly took off with it.
I seem to want to wear it everyday.
It makes me so happy when I catch a glimpse in a mirror and I have this giant thing on my head.
Sometimes I forget I am wearing it, so I am shocked at first.
Then I laugh.
Makes me want to purchase all matter of most giant head gear.
I am sure I must look mad in it.
But, isn't it just perfect for a wild and kookie tea party???
