“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking-Glass
I have to confess right here at the start that I was never a big fan of Alice as a child! I struggled to get through Alice in Wonderland and gave up part way into Through the Looking-Glass! I haven’t tried again as an adult, but it’s on my list of things to do. (yep, it’s a very long list!)
But the idea of it has always appealed to me.
Sometimes everything can seem so backwards and indistinct, a bit like like looking at it in a mirror with a different perspective from the rest of the world. That doesn’t mean that my perspective is wrong, just a little different. And as a supposedly grown-up person, I’ve learned that being different is OK.
So welcome to my topsy-turvy world! Hang on tight and enjoy the ride!
I can’t promise that everything will always make sense, but I’m sure you’ll enjoy the experience if you take things at face value rather than trying to work out the why and how of where they came from.
