    Thanks, Pavi.

    Strangely (or should I say, serendipitously, as there may not be any coincidences), my Dad is currently reading the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.  I didn't realize how deep it was.

    When I read the first part, I took it literally-- a headstand?  And seeing things "upside-down" or from a different perspective.  I think this goes along with the creative solutions we all have-- working from a paradigm/framework and mindset that is different (as the same ones may not work with existing problems). 

    And the before coming after reminded me of NOW, which is the ONLY time we really HAVE to actually live/experience. 

    The notions of "can't", "won't", "don't" all are beliefs which when turned upside-down hold possibilities.  I think of us keeping on ?ing/searching/seeking, or simply BEing, and living from this possibility.

    And the end reminded me of stillness and silence, which is one way of relishing the experience of NOW.
