I really enjoyed last year’s Rumi calendar. I got to ponder a Rumi verse all month long, and finally, toward the end of the month, saw how it epitomized, shed light on, or offered comfort for some event from that month.
This year’s wall calendar is Alice in Wonderland, illustrated by Iassen
Ghiuselev. And January’s, with the title “Curiouser and curiouser!” shows Alice taking an Escher-esque fall down the rabbit-hole. What with the Egyptian uprising and my reading of Hyperspace by Michio Kaku, I’d say the calendar was right on.
“I don’t like your calendar,” my daughter said.
“Why not?” I asked.
“Because she’s falling. When will she stop falling?”
“Oh, I don’t know, she’s just going down the rabbit hole . . . ”
“Yes, but when will she stop falling?”
“Well, when she gets to the bottom, of course.”
“Yes, but when will she get to the bottom?”
Well, now it’s February. “Sentence first, verdict afterward.”
