Hey! My unbirthday was February 9th
I have loved Alice and her many Adventures In Wonderland.....I passed along that love to my 3 sons 27,19 & 17, I'm not surprised they love her as much as I do....I wonder how many adventures were left in Lewis Carroll's head that went unsaid.
Happy Birthday LC

MarkBlemishandtheImperfeckshuns said...

It seems like Lewis Carrol might have been really strange, I bet he kind of believed that dreams were real. I wonder what he'd think of the parallel universe theories that physisist are exporing now. I believe that there is so much more to this world than our 6 senses would have us believe. And the whole thing about mirrors, I mean they are used in magick, was he into that? And there's the children thing, how was he there?

Would love to read this.

David said...

I am really looking forward to reading this. We are starting to see a body of work on Carroll that I feel is getting more balanced and less of "the myth". And anything to which Edward Wakeling is prepared to lend his name must have something going for it.
