Melancholy Flying Girl, or Poor Lonely Alice Misses Her Dinah

Oh I was busy busy today. Frantic with stuffety stuff to do and too much coffee. I am only one writing session away from winning nanowrimo this year, although a week or two away from finishing the book, if I keep up with this pace. Thanksgiving is on Thursday along with the plans and cooking and cleaning and shopping that go along with it. I'm thinking about Christmas coming, and about New York.
When I finished my morning work and the girl settled into her nap and the afternoon slowly passed, I realized I had no post for today. And no painting, either.
I said to the boy, "shall I just pick a book page and go from there?"
I think the boy was watching Little Bear, so didn't do much answering, but my self thought it was a good idea. I opened my old Alice in Wonderland and this is the page I landed on. Poor Alice, lonely for her cat, the best cat in the world, whom no one in this strange land seems to understand. I guess it's hard to be on these journeys sometimes, as you are away from loved and familiar people, friends, and surroundings.
Oh well. There's no way but to go through these strange wonderlands, and see who you are when you come out the otherside.

Oh my! Terrific posting! It's so clever that you do these on "Alice in Wonderland" paper! I love the layers of meaning and fun. Great cat too.

I scrolled down through your blog today. I guess I have missed visiting some days. I didn't realize how many Alice Flying Girls you had done. I really love the look. It is a great series.

I love how you've used the book to do your alice paintings. And Alice is so pretty flying above.

And you even did it BEFORE Thanksgiving. You have almost a week left!

Do you hear clapping from far away? That's me.

I came to your blog from another website.. the one that asked me to pledge my life goals and I wrote "to be a warrior". Then I read your advice and these Flying Girl posts and it all struck a chord and compelled me to write at least just to say "thanks" for putting yourself out there, and for the inspiration. Thanks for your wisdom and for letting your creativity flow and be shared.

Peace and love,

TC
