Through the looking glass…
One of my favorite accidental philosophers is the Cheshire Cat from Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alice first encounters the cat after she’s become more and more harried by her adventures. She asks of him, “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” the Cheshire Cat replied.
Slowly, Alice realized she was lost. Without giving it thought, she had chased White Rabbit down the rabbit hole and into Wonderland, a world of confusion and anarchy.
While exploring this new world, Alice followed strange creatures, attended endless tea parties, and matched wits with a foul-tempered ruler. She took potions that changed her appearance, and then, she realized she didn’t really know who she was.
Break out of your Wonderland cycle!
Simply responding to the world around her left Alice exhausted and dispirited. She had ventured into Wonderland alone and ended up completely lost and alone. If her story sounds familiar, maybe I can help.
