Curiouser and curiouser

“Let’s consider your age to begin with — how old are you?’
‘I’m seven and a half exactly.’
‘You needn’t say “exactually,”’ the Queen remarked: ‘I can believe it without that. Now I’ll give you something to believe. I’m just one hundred and one, five months and a day.’
‘I can’t believe that!’ said Alice.
‘Can’t you?’ the Queen said in a pitying tone. ‘Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.’
Alice laughed. ‘There’s no use trying,’ she said: ‘one can’t believe impossible things.’
‘I daresay you haven’t had much practice,’ said the Queen. ‘When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”
― Lewis Carroll

Q is for Queen

  1. Hi. I love your picture of hands over the ears. Ha ha. Isn't that how all mothers feel sometimes? Been there, done that. I really like the book of Alice and her stories. Kids don't get the right kind of fantasy stories any more. Many have become inured to real magic of storytelling. Come see me if you wish. Number 749 on the list today. Ruby aka Blabbin' Grammy.
