Curiouser and Curiouser

"Are you ever lonely in some motel room
Looking out the window at an ever-changing world?
Can you please fly back as when you and I were young
If anyone could make it, you're gonna be the one"
~ 'Super Girl' by Gin Blossoms

Hello, my name is Alice. I am lost in this crazy world called Wonderland. I'm following an elusive white rabbit who wears a waist coat and carries a pocket watch. When he sees me, he addresses me as Mary Anne, which I know isn't my name -- still, perhaps he'd stop running if I acknowledged it.

There is this cat who keeps appearing as well, though he is truly no help at all. Instead, he just leads me around in circles -- though I am sure there is some lesson I am missing. That is generally the case with life's lessons. Wouldn't you agree?

Whereever I wander, curious characters offer me tea, candy, and strange foods to eat. A queen wants to chop off my head and her wimp of a king tries to explain to her that I am just a young girl -- but she doesn't care - at least not at the moment.

I am alone here -- but not really. I will hold onto my faith. I know whom I love and I will continue along this journey until the world sets itself right.

As I said before, my name is Alice, and I will have a story to tell, as soon as I live it.
