The thought of going outside used to sound like a great idea, however, these days it is a concept that is tougher to navigate. I’ve been feeling very nostalgic during these times...revisiting old cartoons that used to bring me so much joy...and Wonderland doesn’t feel so far away. As I slip into daydreams during this slowed pace of life, the idea of "peaking over the wall" and being transported back to "The Outside" at any moment is what has kept my creative juices flowing. The excitement of what I may find there makes me insatiably curious. Perhaps some rabbits have the key to lead me in? These conductors of chaotic time-splitting fun always seem to show up right when I need them, usually equipped with a pocket watch or a compass in hand to guide one into the greatest amount of mischief in the shortest amount of time possible. Through bunny trails and rabbit holes, you’ll meet owls, cats, snakes, and moles. Sometimes the adventures are just beyond the walls we surround ourselves with and just need to crumble a bit to "Let the Outside in."
