in a land of scientific reason the thing we reach for is make-believing... by 

And who, do you suppose, is to blame? And who, would you say, could blame us? For wanting the imagination back they beat out of us since coloring books and “no playing with your food!”. Don’t they know! We just want something illogical! We want something ridicious! We want something lovely and mind-boggling that will make us think more than chemistry equations ever will…Don’t they know! We are going to paint scribbles and play with our food….

Who are YOU?’ said the Caterpillar.

This was not an encouraging opening for a conversation. Alice replied, rather shyly, `I—I hardly know, sir, just at present— at least I know who I WAS when I got up this morning, but I think I must have been changed several times since then.’

`What do you mean by that?’ said the Caterpillar sternly. `Explain yourself!’

`I can’t explain MYSELF, I’m afraid, sir’ said Alice, `because I’m not myself, you see.’

`I don’t see,’ said the Caterpillar.

`I’m afraid I can’t put it more clearly,’ Alice replied very politely, `for I can’t understand it myself to begin with; and being so many different sizes in a day is very confusing.’

`It isn’t,’ said the Caterpillar.

`Well, perhaps you haven’t found it so yet,’ said Alice; `but when you have to turn into a chrysalis—you will some day, you know—and then after that into a butterfly, I should think you’ll feel it a little queer, won’t you?’

`Not a bit,’ said the Caterpillar.

`Well, perhaps your feelings may be different,’ said Alice; `all I know is, it would feel very queer to ME.’

`You!’ said the Caterpillar contemptuously. `Who are YOU?’

    magic mushrooms in Galion?-nice enhancement, Tonya and I may be a bit nonobjective, but dearly love the narrative you are using for your latest postings. Very nice colour treatment and comp… might get you an ‘A’ from your teacher, but she sets a high standard. ;-}
