I can't believe I forgot to post the card I made with one of my Alice stamps! Alice Who??? Alice of Wonderland fame, of course. Yes, I know, the caterpillar is smoking a hookah, which is traditionally loaded with some version of pot, and is, moreover, sitting on a magic mushroom. Enough said! I prefer to focus on my childhood experience of the scene, which, for me, was sheer delight at the thought of talking to a caterpillar.
In the 1950's Walt Disney film version, instead of disappearing into the surrounding grass, the caterpillar metamorphoses into a butterfly. I like to think of the possibility of transforming myself, by dint of the struggle to improve my virtues and conquer my faults. No magic mushrooms needed for that!
