We All Could Use A Little More Wonderland ~ A Dose of Daily Down the Rabbit Hole
The Merriam-Webster definition of Wonderland is: “an imaginary place of delicate beauty or magical charm.”
The Collins COBUILD Advanced English Dictionary says, “Wonderland is an imaginary world that exists in fairy tales.”
Webster’s New World College Dictionary’s definition of Wonderland describes: 1. an imaginary land full of wonders 2. any place of great beauty, strangeness, etc.
Your Dictionary says Wonderland is: “An imaginary or real place full of wonder or marvels.”
What ever Wonderland is for you, perhaps at the least it is a place of possibility.
I know, for me, it is where my soul dwells, my innocence thrives, and my heart goes wild with boundless abandon.
I noticed that the more the world outside has shifted, the more my world has increasingly gone Wonderland.
You may have already noted my new word, “wonderly,” but my shared creative space with Astrid (do you see her mirror reflection above left? hehe!) has increasingly become an actual daily dose of “down the rabbit hole.”
It seems no coincidence that things naturally transformed so much in this vein while my current transformations have hurled me into greater need of creating and embodying a different reality than the one being presented to me.
This will be a short-worded post, but full of glimpses into the world of my imagination come true.
This is where I am able to focus on creating what I want, rather than what others want for me.
It’s where I feel nurtured to keep on believing, dreaming, and expanding – drinking from my own cup of wonderly tea (do you see my “Drink Me” teacup above right?)
It’s where I find ways to strengthen my innocence so that my heart stays open and can do the alchemy it was meant to.
It’s where I talk to rabbits and faeries and every being in between.
I feel we have enough of the current stream of information overload going on, so if for even just one moment these images can help transport you into the world of imagination and childlike wonder, then that’s reason enough to confirm why I feel to share them.
I believe this is where our power lies and more of our creative potentials will be discovered.
You may even feel inspired to start writing your own story a little bit more each day.
Or, even more fantagickal would be experiencing yourself feeling more comfortable being just who you are. (There I go making another new word combining fantastic and magickal weeeeee!)
I present these windows into wonderly things to ignite your own curiosity, activate portals of possibility, and perhaps help you to believe in “as many as six impossible things before breakfast” too.
Things are evolving here quite rapidly in many moving parts and so I’m not sure when I’ll hop in again, or from where I’ll be when I do.
But know that no matter where I am, or where you are, Wonderland is a place your heart and imagination can always take you to.
You simply have to be curious enough to enter or mad enough to dream a wish upon a dandelion star.
And the second you let your mind wander, you just might slip in.
Welcome to Wonderland.
We’re all mad here.
And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I’m so completely off my head that I fall into rabbit holes like these with magickal alignment, and so can you!
On the last day in Portland of our recent adventure before we headed toward home, we were led in twists and turns back and forth over bridges and in circles, finding every place we navigated to was closed, all to have us land at this delicious and only open spot that just happened to have the address of 555 – my favorite number repeated in the message sequence my rabbit family in the other realms send me when they have something important to tell me or confirm.
I will never have enough of Wonderland.
Hope to see you there!
