Through the Looking Glass

Next weekend I'm moving back to the household I moved out of less than 2 months ago. Does this feel a tad bit like Alice in Wonderland through the looking glass, or falling down the rabbit hole? Yep, sure does. My alters haven't really adjusted to living here, and now they are faced with having to readjust to living in a place I thought was behind me. It's not a matter of not wanting to live there again, it's just the jolt of going backwards.


Having said all that, let me quote Alice: "Somehow it seems to fill my head with ideas, only I don't exactly know what they are!" This is her response to finding a book with looking glass poetry which can be read  only by holding it up to a mirror. I must hold up the poetry of this new twist in the road of my life's journey to the mirror, and see what it speaks to me. Good things, I hope, or at least things easily understood by my befuddled brain.

Your friends (even though we are online) move with you. When you pack your PC please do so with care. Please put a pillow or something under the PC so all your blogger buddies can travel comfortably to the destination. I personally want a window seat so could you cut a hole in the box so I can see out. I know with your comical brain you can see my big brown eye peaking out of the hole of the box. Stories of my cats will take your imagination to another level where you'll believe you see Bella's paw reaching out, searching around only to be drawn back then out again for the same fruitless search. Are we there yet Gracie says way back in the D drive area. NO not yet says Captain propped up on the memory card. He then sticks his nose out the make shift window sniffing to the left, to the right then the left again. Suddenly he is snatched back inside where you hear a small scuffle followed by, "It's my turn. Let me see." Brown eyed Aussie takes a peak and sees the destination. We're here guys! We're here! We're at Beauty's house! We all go in together never missing a step, a memory or a chance to make more.
Until again,

You're so funny, Austin! This was very descriptive, I believe I really could see your big brown eyes poking out, and Gracie asking, "Are we there yet?"

Thanks, you gave me a good chuckle.
