and so it begins...
'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"
- Jabberwocky
(first two stanzas)
read the complete poem
by Lewis Carroll


It is a hot summer afternoon and we sit with our Alice beside the tum tum tree. Alice spies movement in the hedges over yonder. We walk across the lawn and witness toves in the wabe.

Let's get in queue! Alice squeals with glee.

So, we too gyre and gimble...
