Fab Quote | Alice in Wonderland

Sometimes I'm not sure I know where am I heading...

If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.
Lewis Carroll

The words are not an actual Carroll quote, it’s essentially a paraphrase of an exchange between Alice and the Cheshire Cat in Chapter 6 of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland:

“Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“so long as I get SOMEWHERE,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”

I’m on my way somewhere, but I do not know where. I feel like I’ve lost my mojo for writing these past weeks. I feel kind of lost, out of energy. Out of place really. I am not sure where I’m heading, but heres’ to hoping the road will take me there anyway. Maybe I find my way back soon. Back to writing, back to meaning. Maybe even tomorrow.

Sleep tight babes, don’t let the bed bugs bite.

    I’m sure your mojo will return in no time flat. Sometimes we just need a little break. Thanks for stopping in to see me today!

  2. Don’t worry, it happens to all of us. Rest, play, restore. If nothing else, try a new tea or cocoa! You’ll soon find an unexplored branch of creativity to climb upon. BTW, I love your pink shoes.

    Give yourself some time to take a break. You have been doing so much that perhaps your mojo just needs some time to germinate and soon a new seed of creativity will sprout. In the meantime I’ll be sending good thoughts your way.

    You’ve been blogging for so long… it’s only normal to get some downtime whether you asked for it or not. Perhaps the Universe is telling you to take a short break.

    Hi Hanna – I enjoy your blog so much, it always gives me inspiration and things to ponder in the world of art…but it is January and cold and grey where you are…it is cold and grey where I am and I know how draining and tiring winter can be. Give yourself a time out and tell yourself and your fans that you can’t write again until you see a flower in bloom outside or see a baby bird or on April 1st…give yourself a big enough break that you are DYING to write again and then you will find it difficult not to write with all the wonderful things you saved up once you were rested and recharged. We will all understand. Maybe you should host a few guests on your blog to inspire you! xoxo Pam

    As the others have said, we totally do understand but that’s not to say that we won’t miss you [‘cuz we will!] Love you, friend!

    Love your pink boots! You have the January blahs! Who wouldn’t, with gray skies day after day and so on and so on… Just resend us some old favorite posts from the archives. I love rereading your blog posts. They might just kick start all of us to keep on keeping on!! Be well and happy. Hugs!!

  8. A wonderful source for quotes . . . I must read it again.

    And those boots! I would love a yellow pair! Or lime! Or purple! I’m not a pink person. :)

    “clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it” but having bought pink shoes might help…..i should buy pink shoes too ;)

    Hanna, I am sorry you are in a bit of a funk. :( Sometimes we needs to drift quietly until the wind picks up our sails again. Hopefully your creative juices will start to flow soon. Take care.
    PS: And yes! Those pink shoes are fabulous!

    I know the feeling.
    It looks like things went forward from when you wrote this, but it’s a hilly road sometimes!

    I love this quote and thanks for this inspiration. Alice In Wonderland is in my top five favorites. Usually number one.
