Beloved storybook character, Alice, curious as her two cats Kitty and Snowdrop, wondered what life would be like on the other side of a looking glass. She was able to access that alternate universe. I tried the same thing as a kid, but with no luck. I pushed as hard as I could with my hands firm up against the mirror over the dresser in my bedroom, and only came up against resistance. “How did she do that?” I would say to my reflection and figured it would be much easier to fall down a rabbit hole; only our yard didn’t have one.
Lexington, with the same curiosity, has been trying for days to go through the mirror in my ballet studio.
“Lex, it was only a children’s story; the product of Lewis Carroll’s imagination.” Still, he ponders the possibilities as he sees peculiar goings on over there on the other side.
I can only imagine what he would find; hopefully something more intriguing than a chess game come-to-life and nursery rhyme characters. Although, it would be fascinating if the Cheshire Cat made an appearance.
Maybe in Lexington’s looking glass universe he would meet a flying pony, or maybe a Chihuahua in a pirate ship!
It’s a good thing Captain Hook is in a different fairytale.
Hey, is that our resident squirrel coming out of the looking glass, now how did he do that?!
Lexington, you better go talk to the squirrel.
