On this day in 1865, Alice in Wonderland was published for the first time. Though originally written as satire on mathematics, now it is a engaging story of wondrous adventure. In it, Carroll creates a fantasy world that captivates both children and adults, alike. It opens the mind to so many things- things like what is and isn’t impossible and what we are capable of. Expansion of the mind and our understanding is something I am very for. Anything that challenges what is “normal” and what we think should not be frowned upon but is welcome. Impossible is nothing, it’s just a big word thrown around by small people.
