My Travels to Wonderland


Man it has been a bit since I’ve last written my thoughts. This past weekend’s encounters have opened up the floodgates to thought.

I feel a little like Alice in Wonderland and as I’m getting to know the Mad Hatter during our tea party, I realize he is actually my best friend. What I thought seemed normal was just an illusion and it has metamorphosed into a kaleidoscope of color, much like butterfly wings. Normal was thrown out the window when I met up with the Caterpillar and the Cheshire Cat. Normal is an old hat getting thrown out and pushing me down the road to find a new hat. A shiny top hat that smiles and waves and says “I’m glad you found me old friend, what took you so long??”

In the last few months, I’ve had the immense pleasure of meeting some amazing and interesting folks who all think outside the box and have made me realize I need to be thinking outside/upside/and all around the bloody box as well. My old normal no longer exists and that’s a good thing because it was pretty boring and I wouldn’t have been able to meet the people I have. Here’s me in little red skirt with a black corset and a shiny top hat curtsying to my new friends and dare I say, family perhaps, one never knows.

Doors are opening at lightning speed for me and I just need to buckle up my bootstraps and my whip and walk through them and become my own Alice.

This is dedicated to all my new “family”. The ones I’ve met this past weekend and the ones I’ve met a week or so ago. I love you all and I’m ready to dance  with you on this wild and wonderful new stage and have you join me in my Wonderland.
