Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll is my most favorite literary work, so when I found this necklace, I was - to say the least - ecstatic.
Alice's coming-of-age story may seem disorganized and insane, but after reading it a few times, the symbolism becomes clearer. I do wonder about Carroll. I've heard many disconcerting stories about him, and his characters (especially the Caterpillar) seem proof of his supposed dysfunction. Nevertheless, I enjoy his work. Perhaps I'll post one of his poems for you in the future.
It's difficult to choose a favorite character, but I do adore the Cheshire Cat. He is the only character who is completely kind and helpful to Alice during her journey. The Mad Hatter isn't wholly terrible to her, so he's my second favorite. He gets fussy at times, but I find him and his eternal tea party amusing. And everyone else in Wonderland is rather cranky.
I've had my writing compared to Alice in Wonderland on multiple occasions. Not sure if that is simply because the piece has influenced me so much or if it's because I'm genuinely whimsical and juvenile. Either way, I enjoy that comparison quite a lot.
My dreams tend to be wild like Alice's. I'm always tumbling down a rabbit hole, embarking on nonsensical adventures.
