I was in the midst of one of these days today and picked up 'Alice in Wonderland'. Following her as she wandered around getting larger and smaller, met unusual characters, and reading about babies who were really pigs made me aware that crazy experiences have been around for generations.
I know Lewis Carroll has had his personality and character dissected and shredded and hung out to dry by dozens of commentators. Yet, we all know without a shadow of a doubt the name of the girl who followed a white rabbit down a hole. His nonsense rhymes and bizarre disjointed dialogues have become favorites for kids of all ages.
His words held a wisdom similar to the Dr's many years later. I often wonder how much influence Carroll had on Dr. Seuss. Am off to the Queen's croquet party. Hoping I don't lose my head!
