Life Lessons From Alice in Wonderland

I recently returned from London and while there went to a cool underground (literally) moving play/ experience to celebrate the classic. While there, I realized that the work had shaped the way I live my life and thought I'd jot down some of the things I learned from the work. In doing so, it was a nice reminder for how important symbolism is in writing.

*I, too, fell down a tunnel into a very strange world.

*Sometimes I can consume things (metaphorically) that make me feel too tall or two small when trying to maintain balance.

*Time is unrelenting.

*The queen of hearts can be a bitch.

*Most of life is wandering around chatting with archetypes.

*Any day can be a celebration, but if every day is a party you might go "mad," or maybe it's the manufacturing of too many hats to wear that will drive you crazy.

Those are some of my interpretations. Which symbols from Alice in Wonderland resonate with you?

  1. Ha! 'Most of life is wandering around chatting with archetypes'.

    I like that one, for some reason. I think it's because of the nature of my job, where I talk with people who say things that make absolutely no sense and present them as the most reasonable thing in the world.


    Actually, I think that's every job I've ever worked.
