leaves wings and other such things

therefore i am mad

eyes of a curious cat

“And how do you know that you’re mad?

“To begin with,” said the Cat,
“a dog’s not mad.
You grant that?”
“I suppose so,”
said Alice.

Well then,” the Cat went on, “you see a dog growls when it’s angry, & wags its tale when it’s pleased.little dancing dog


Now I growl when I’m pleased, wag my tail when I’m angry. Therefore I’m mad.”

―Lewis Carroll,
  Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

  & Through the Looking-Glass


so i can’t help wondering,
what do the cheshire cat, dormouse,
& march hare do with their time
when the madhatter is away
from the tea party.

hum? i think i will join them,
how about you?

    I love the quotes. There’s always something to learn from Alice’s buddies.
