The Escapedes of Luna the Wonderdog and Ariel the Adventurer

Hello all! I have had a marvelous day today and i wanted to share it with you!

It is a new year, with new adventures, and i have decided to take full advantage of that! So, along with my pal, Luna, I decided to see how much trouble i could get into today :)

So, we went for a walk.
And on that walk, we ran into a creature, by the name of Mr. Snuffalobe

Well, Mr. Snuffalobe(Mr. S) decided that i was in need of some adventure(and indeed i was) so he presented me with a key

 He told me to lean in close, so i did, and he whispered into my ear that if i could find the keyhole, i would enter my very own wonderland. The problem was, i only had 24 hours to find it.

24 hours! But, this secret keyhole could be anywhere! It could be in China for all I knew!

However, Mr. S told me not to worry, for he saw the excitement and dismay plain on my face, he wouldn't give me only 24 hours unless he knew i could find it. Well, that made me feel a little better, but we agreed that i had better get started.

Well, m and Luna searched high and low for hours until, i slumped, exhausted, against a tree.
"We will never find it, Luna. It's impossible. "

"Ariel, don't give up yet! Perhaps were looking in all that wrong places. After all, Lewis Carrol's version of wonderland was all In his head. Maybe that's all Mr. S meant. Maybe he meant for you too look deep inside yourself, and realize that Wonderland has been with you all along, and always will be."

Well, that sounded pretty profound to me, so with a little help form dear Luna, I did some major soul searching. Do you want to know what we found?

We realized that all we need to be happy is our own contentment. If we are happy with ourselves, then even in a dark situation, we can create our own light, our own happiness, and we can delve into our own wonderland.

Wonderland does exist, even though it is not tangible to the naked eye. Humans focus so much on seeing and touching things, we need to have proof that  they are really there. When really, all we truly need to do is believe, and it will be.

Mr. Snuffalobe gave me the key to myself, what I needed to unlock the secret part of my mind that has access to Wonderland. It was with me all along.

On a lighter note, here is a quote from a book i have been enjoying, called The Thirteen Reasons Why. It is a rather dark book, but it has a very deep meaning. One thing is for sure, no one will walk away from reading it unscathed. It will change you.

"If my love were an ocean,
There would be no more land.
If my love were a desert,
You would only see sand.
If my love were a star--
late at night, only night.
And if my love could grow wings,
I'd be soaring in flight."

It is a slightly crude poem, but I really loved what it had to say. I really recommend checking out that book, by Jay Asher. It is worth the read, I guarantee it.

Well I hope you had a fabulous day, and that you enjoyed my post! Until next time!

xoxo, Ariel :)

  1. Hi Ariel!
    Oh my! This is quite possibly one of the loveliest things I have ever read! It is so true. People are constantly searching outside of themselves for happiness, whether it be through another person, through a title, or just through constantly buying stuff. True wonderment and whimsy is within. It is all in the imagination, and you can go there whenever you choose. I think a lot of people lose this as they grow up, until one day they find they can't return to wonderland at all... that's a very sad thing. I hope I never lose it, I hope I never grow up! Like Peter Pan. This is soooo sooo wonderful and you're an absolute gem for thinking this way.
    Lots of love,
