Through the Looking Glass

 11 When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. 12 For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.~~~ 1 Corinthians 13 11-12

I decided to begin to write this post. Here thus begun.
The drops in the sun after cold rain.  Spider's webs.  Stories.  White and red roses, we have large rose bushes in our front and back yards.  It always reminds me of Wonderland... and that one attractive idea: you could paint the roses red.
I am currently reading Through the Looking Glass, and am enjoying it a little better than the first book.  I finished reading Alice in Wonderland and nearly thought it rubbish.  But there's some meaning meant in it.  It's like a purposeful gibberish language that means something we do not think it means.  What is important to be found in the story?  I'm sure I don't know completely what Carrol means in his stories, filled with 'Easter eggs' or references from his life.  I do think I would have liked Alice's older sister.
But I do know I found a certain idea.  A very interesting one.  Has to do with dreams.
Do write, if you want to write.  I know I shall.  A certain story must be finished by the 24th of June.  Please pray that I finish.  I pray for peace, wisdom, healing, and a triumphant end to writer's block for all fellow writers. :)
Signing out,
Clara Emilyn Wood (Clara E. Wood)
or Emilyn J Wood...  which name do you like better?


  1. I love vs. 11 from 1st Corinthians. I'm reading Do Hard Things (by Alex and Brett Harris) right now and that's one of the verses they put in the book. It's very good.

    And I don't know which name I like better! Maybe Clara E. Wood. It's a little easier to say than Emilyn J Wood. But either one is gorgeous.

  2. Yeah I was looking for a verse that mentioned mirrors and then I realized it was right after the verse about being a child and it's one of my favorites, plus it fit the post. So I decided to put it in too. (:
    Thanks for your opinions! It's helpful in finding the right pseudonym.
