The Red Queen and Alice

The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
~The Second Coming, Willliam Butler Yeats

And they went so fast at last they seemed to skim through the air, hardly touching the ground with their feet ...
~ Through the Looking Glass, Lewis Carroll

In other news, Kaetlyn Wilcox has put her wonderful animal series up for sale on redbubble as cards and prints. Startling loveliness - check it out (by the way, redbubble has volume discounts if you buy more than four cards)!

Have you seen the new movie version yet? I hear it earned quite a bit of money over the first couple of weeks.

I love this whole series--the red queen's head in this one is particularly phenomenal.

i love the Carroll quote. i don't know why, but the large hadron collider popped in my mind when i read that. what's up with that?

love that poem. the center cannot hold. the falcon cannot hear the falconer.

speaks well to Wonderland when you think about it. I did a paper in college about Through the Looking Glass and game theory, and how the fact that the chess moves were nonsensical (and at one point suicidal, as the King puts himself in check) points to Wonderland being, if not a Godless universe, then one where god is stark raving mad.

which fits my own worldview rather well.

Startling loveliness is a great phrase. Alice is really in the group mind these days. I see her everywhere.

Love this.
