“Who in the world am I? Ah, that's the great puzzle.” Alice in Wonderland
One of the greatest books written, and an often misunderstood book, given to children far too young and written off as nonsense, is Alice in Wonderland. There's a depth of philosophy in it for the astute reader, and a great go to guide as an inner compass for a curious and thoughtful mind. Alice bucks the status quo and questions all, including herself.
I was delighted to see these shoes in Origami Doll in Newtown. While I didn't buy them on the spot, I suspect I'll be back later in the week to add to my collection. They'd be the perfect prompt to ask myself 'What would Alice do?' when stuck for motivation.
For anyone wanting to change, or bring change in their lives or the world, it's worth remembering this one of the many dialogues on time.
“Alice:How long is forever?
White Rabbit:Sometimes, just one second.”
Maybe the change will come after our lifetime, or maybe it comes sooner than we think.
