the veiled sibyl

I have heard and said more inanities, since you took me in tow, than in all the rest of my life.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

'Cheshire Puss,' she began, rather timidly, as she did not at all know whether it would like the name: however, it only grinned a little wider. 'Come, it's pleased so far,' thought Alice, and she went on. 'Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'

'That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.

'I don't much care where--' said Alice.

'Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.

'--so long as I get SOMEWHERE,' Alice added as an explanation.

'Oh, you're sure to do that,' said the Cat, 'if you only walk long enough.'

Alice felt that this could not be denied, so she tried another question. 'What sort of people live about here?'

In THAT direction,' the Cat said, waving its right paw round, 'lives a Hatter: and in THAT direction,' waving the other paw, 'lives a March Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad.'

'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.

'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'

'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.

'You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here.'


I have this recurring dream about stairs and elevators. In the dream I'm always trying to go somewhere (generally up) but something is always preventing my progress. The stairs just stop in mid air, or go down as you climb up them (think Escher). Elevators go sideways or in circles.
And every time I've had this dream, Okashii is in it. Either I see him somewhere and I'm trying to get to him, or we're walking together trying to get to something. Usually, he ends up getting on the right staircase or elevator, and I'm just left there trying to figure out how to get to where he is.
