The Time is NOW

“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:”*
And talk is all we do;
No wonder we don’t change a thing!
The fear of time and time of fear
Strings us along a string.
The time is now, and now’s the time
To act upon the scene!

*Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There, 1872

Written for Lillian’s prompt, “Timing is everything!” at

  1. Oooooh, I LOVE anything to do with Alice in Wonderland!
    “The fear of time and time of fear” — an excellent line!
    Well done 🙂 Sometimes we all want to jump down a rabbit hole, right?


  2. Love how you’ve included Leiws Carroll’s line in this as well 🙂 It’s so true though. All we tend to do is talk more rather than actually doing something.
