If you don’t know where you are going, any road will get you there.
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 whereó” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“óso 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.
