Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Six Impossible Things

This is an occasionally Random Post.

The White Queen
'I can't believe that!' said Alice.

'Can't you?' the Queen said in a pitying tone. 'Try again: draw a long breath, and shut your eyes.'

Alice laughed. 'There's no use trying,' she said: 'one can't believe impossible things.'

'I daresay you haven't had much practice,' said the Queen. 'When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.'

It was the White Queen, from Through the Looking Glass, who said this. Wise words from an old crone.

When life gets you down, think of or believe in, six impossible things before breakfast. Just take a deep breath and close your eyes.

If you are aren't smiling by the sixth thing, think of six more. Keep thinking of impossible things until you do, or until you understand that life itself is impossible.

Yet here we are.

My six impossible things for today are:
Living with fairies.
Being able to levitate.
Coconuts with soft shells.
Having tea with St. Francis of Assisi.
Discovering an easy cure for all cancers.
Lounging on a cloud.

How about sharing at least one impossible thing with me? It'll make us both smile.


  1. Hi Bish .. I've always wanted to look down on the earth after I die and try to comprehend all those things I don't understand now .. and see history in various flashes .. well I'd rather do it now .. but I'd rather be around for a while longer!

    Cheers to you - thankfully I'm almost always positive ... happy days - Hilary

  2. Read my recent post -- Oh, I guess that was possible, but I do like to believe in impossible things and then do my best to make them happen.

  3. I'd love to lounge on a cloud! Especially if the cloud is high above a thunderstorm. That'd be cool!

    My impossible thing: food replicator like in Star Trek. Fingers crossed that impossibility becomes possible in my lifetime, LoL. :)

    Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

  4. Impossible things? Oh Gosh. Being able to travel with a wiggle of the nose like Bewitched. Living in a world where there is enough of everything for everyone and no one feuding about any of it.
    The ability to smell lilacs whenever I want.
    The power to change anything, my house, my yard, with a wave of a wand, and if I don't like it, to do it again and again and again! Thanks Bish. I'm smiling!

  5. I loved your list! Great to think about. I would add- living in an underwater paradise. :)

  6. I like this idea. My list would include levitation, telekinesis, and teleportation.

  7. I'd love to levitate and lounge on a cloud, too!

  8. I love this post! I'd love a great, loud crackling, crazy thunderstorm. (Impossible in LA. But one can dream, can't she?!)

    Hope you are smiling! :)

  9. Petting a tiger would be one of mine. :)
