Realm of the Red Rabbit

Realm of the Red Rabbit
’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...!”

Lewis Carroll (from Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872)

My wife takes a walk through "Wonderland," realm of the Red Queen.

Oak Creek Spire (a.k.a. Rabbit Ears) lies ahead, and is reached by crossing
perilous slickrock and a narrow canyon filled with cantankerous cacti.

It is quite familiar to me as we sang it while I was in high school choir.

Thanks, memories are what dreams are made of.

I'm still searching for the "time portal" that goes back to happier times!

If you find it before I do, please give me
a holler !!! !!

I mean, it's a great shot. Where's the trail here? I think you're in the fast lane with more than 12 items.

That's okay, I have connections ..

There was a trail,
But it was stolen by a cattle-rustling BATCH ..

The "ringleader" they could not CATCH,

But he submitted when they threatened to

remove his ... BANDER-SNATCH.

SP is a proud mountaineers site and I don't think Bander- whatever you call them should be mentioned for Christ sake! Jesus Larry!

Do you know what the acronym for Bander-Snatch
is : it's 'BS!'

I was just making a feeble attempt to add a
bit of Colour and humor to your trails Album.

If you want me to remove it from your album,
just say the word and I will cooperate
completely. But, here's a Poem before I go:

"Just a song before I go ..
To whom it may concern.
Traveling twice the speed of sound,
It's easy to get burned.

When the shows were over,
We had to get back home ..
And when we opened up the door,
I had to be ALONE ..."

(And ... Jesus has nothing to do with this.)

Definition of "Bander-snatch .."

The Bander-snatch is a disgusting, drooling, foul-smelling creature with a big filthy body and the squashed, teeth-baring face of a rabid bulldog.

It sometimes resembles a Jabberwocky ..

It's funny - sometimes I have trouble
perceiving if a person is joking or dead
serious on these cyberspace pages.

But, I suppose they THINK the same of ME.

Which leads us to a very DEEP subject:

"This garden universe VIBRATES complete.
Some, we get a sound so sweet ..
Vibrations reach on up to become light,
And then through gamma, out of sight ..

Between the eyes and ears there lie,
The sounds of colour and the light of a sigh.

And to hear the sun, what a thing to believe;
But it's all around if we could but PERCEIVE ..."

You know ... a unique curiosity and paradoxical wonder that you should mention 'HELL ..'

"The lover of life's not a sinner ..
The ending is just a beginner.
The closer you get to the meaning,
The sooner you'll know that you're dreaming.

So it's on and on and on, oh it's on and on and on ..
It goes on and on and on, Heaven and HELL .."

I'm a musician and this stuff is an insult to the senses to say the least. Why? Because Dio is not playing his axe!
