'Sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast'
It’s not every day that you are greeted with a friendly ‘Welcome to Wonderland’ upon entering a brick-a-brac store. Nevertheless, this introduction set the tone for a day filled with phantasmagorical discoveries. If only we had known that there was going to be a giant dome tent in the middle of that field! Unvarnished nonsense is never too hard to find in a rational world. You just have to know where to look. In the words of Alice herself, ‘If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?’
“Every once in a while, but not often, you can sit down and write a thing that you know is going to stand people’s hair on end for the rest of their lives- a perfect memory of some kind, like a vision, and you can see the words rolling out of your fingers and bouncing around for a while like wild little jewels before they finally roll into place & line up just exactly like you wanted them to…” - Hunter.S.Thompson
