Part of the wonder of Wonderland is that you cannot find your way back if you try. It is like a magician who is unwilling to do the same trick twice. You plead and beg, but he will not allow you to tear apart his secrets. If you stumble into Narnia again, it is a familiar, yet totally different place from the one that you knew. Peter Pan is always having new adventures, which is what keeps Wendy’s stories so exciting. Oberon’s dancers show off their new steps. That is the magic of the fairytale.
In life, many of us spend time and energy trying to capture the same experience over again. We want things to be like they were that time when everything seemed perfect. We search for the same rabbit hole. Life, though, is far more magical than Wonderland and far less tame.
