Alice's Adventures in Jungle-land | A Photo Series

July 5, 2018

My grand-mother is brilliant. She chooses spectacular incredibly witty, and appropriate greeting cards, writes wonderful hand-written letters (delivered by snail-mail -- yes) with newspaper and magazine snippets that she know's I would love to see, and her gifts are well-chosen books. As a child, my grandmother gifted me a copy of  "Alice's adventures underground" by Charles Lutwidge Dodgson. This original manuscript (of the now condensed children's book version - famously known as "Alice in Wonderland") is hand-written, and even contains the original story illustrations and page art-work. 

The back-story, imagination, and characters of this book have served as inspiration over the years -- constantly reminding me to think outside the box, trust my intuition, and allow my imagination to run wild. 


This week during an overhaul of my book collection, I found this gem once more. After years under-ground, and then in wonderland. I decided it was about time Alice was introduced to the jungle.. 

"Alice's Adventures In Jungle-Land"



"I could tell you my adventures

–beginning from this morning,’

said Alice a little timidly:

‘but it’s no use going back to yesterday,

because I was a different person then.’"





“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.”



“I'm afraid I can't explain myself, sir.

Because I am not myself,

you see?” 





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.”


Reminder : allow yourself to keep changing and growing. Allow your imagination to run wild. Never stop believing in the impossible. And definitely DO talk to strangers.

and eat cake.
