Okay, I'm a Little Ahead of Myself...

 Because it's snowing... yes again and I will likely be shoveling that back deck again this afternoon (for the fourth time this year I might add) I thought that I would turn my attention to all things Christmasy. When it's mid November and the snow is floating down from the heavens... what else can you think of??


 "Christmas Eve was a night of song that wrapped itself about you like a shawl.
But it warmed more than your body. It warmed your heart... filled it, too, with a melody that would last forever."
Bess Streeter Aldrich





 Okay, I feel better now... I do love Christmas Eve :)

Thinking About Alice in Wonderland...

 "Actually, the best gift you could have given her was a lifetime of adventures...
Lewis Carroll (Alice in Wonderland)

Now that I'm thinking about the famous story from my childhood, I am suddenly wondering where the story came from??  Was there one little nugget that suddenly appeared in his brain and the story slowly began to unfold?? I wonder what the story would have looked like if that same little nugget had suddenly appeared in my brain.


My Plans For Today... Thinking about writing my version of Alice in Wonderland. I wonder what my Alice might have been like??
