Down The Rabbit Hole May 31, 2013

Lately, I’ve been feeling a bit like Alice.

In Wonderland.

I subscribe to a number of blogs, and read them regularly, often daily.

These beloved bloggers refer to other blogs in their posts (through the giving or receiving of awards, links to related articles, posts by guest bloggers, or re-blogging posts).

Even if my favorite bloggers remain silent, blog titles on side bars catch my eye, screaming out,  “Read me!,” with the same frequency as the Red Queen’s pronouncement, “Off with her head!”

However it happens, while reading one blogger’s blog, something inevitably catches my attention and, like Alice chasing the White Rabbit, I head through yet another cyber-door to see what waits for me there.

Emerging on the other side, I find still more cyber-doors clamoring for attention (“Read me!” “Eat me!”  “Drink me!”) . . . each leading to yet another blog with still more cyber portals to explore.

The clock chimes and chides me for spending hours giving chase to White Rabbits while traipsing around cyber croquet courts, cheering for Playing Cards armed with Pink Flamingoes.

Like Alice, I need a pill.

Alice experimented with pills that shrunk her down, down, down, and others that caused her to grow high, higher, highest.

Or maybe there’s an App for that?

Aah . . . that’s better!
