1574


Today is already the second Sunday of the New Year; i'm musing today on a bit of whimsy.
I recently re read Alice In Wonderland, delighting still, as an adult, in its absurd characters, language and events; to which a dreams ends with the calling out of the reality of the final characters, reducing them to true nature - just a bunch of cards anyway. My take on the classic - ah; were we to follow our dreams and keep our spunk....?

game on
cards fan out in player's hands
winner and losers
