If you aren’t familiar with this classic, I honestly feel sorry for you.
The story is obviously derived from the book by the incredible Lewis Carroll. (Fun fact: Alice in Wonderland is my favorite book of all-time and I re-read it at least once per year.) The plot follows young Alice, who follows a rabbit down a mysterious hole in the ground. When at the bottom, she finds Wonderland, a place where many perculiar things happen. She meets several interesting characters during her time in Wonderland. Fan favorites include the Mad Hatter, the Chesire Cat, and the hookah-smoking caterpillar. The level of insight offered in this simple children’s movie is unmatchable. Each time I watch it, I gain more valuable knowledge.
WHY I LOVE TAKING THE TRIP DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE:
I am more thankful for Alice now than I have ever been before, as college has robbed me of nearly all of my energy and exuberance of youth. Whenever I am feeling uninspired or stuck, I turn to this story in order that I may once again find my will for adventure. I have such a genuine love for the unknown. Such a love has occasionally gotten me into a bit of trouble, but the benefit of discovering new sights/sounds/ideas/people far outweighs the few bad experiences I’ve had. I hope that I will always remain in a state of mind where I will jump at the chance to travel down a new “rabbit hole.” Exploration and discovery fuels creativity and inpsires personal growth; what’s more important than that?
Always take the plunge, lovely readers. “You can learn a lot of things from the flowers.”
Love and light to all!
