Something very bizarre just happened that has changed my life.
I received a letter this afternoon from my girlfriend, who I haven't spoken with for nearly 2 years. I've been celibate and severely depressed - borderline suicidal - since we last spoke. So when I saw she sent me a letter, before I opened it, I could feel an anxiety attack taking hold. "What could this mean?"
I began reading. She apologized for leaving suddenly and not speaking to me for practically two years. She talked about the spiritual awakening she had experienced recently and hoped that I would forgive her. Then, she stated she realized that she loved me and that we must be wed.
It is bizarre writing this, but I am going to marry her. I'm getting married. It only took 7 years...
The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz
Day One "Now the same thing still twiching me several times by the Coat, I looked back, and behold it was a fair and glorious Lady, whose Garments were all Skye-colour, and curiously (like Heaven) bespangled with golden Stars, in her right Hand she bare a Trumpet of beaten Gold, whereon a Name was ingraven (which I could well read in) but am as yet forbidden to reveal it. In her left Hand she had a great bundle of Letters of all Languages, which she (as I afterwards understood) was to carry into all Countries. She had also large and beautiful Wings, full of Eyes throughout, wherewith she could mount aloft, and flye swifter than any Eagle. I might perhaps been able to take further notice of her, but because she staid so small time with me, and terror and amazement still possessed me, I was fain to be content. For as soon as I turned about, she turned her Letters over and over, and at length drew out a small one, which with great Reverence she laid down upon the Table, and without giving one word, departed from me."

The White Rabbit
F. F. E. Yeo-Thomas 17 June 1902 – 26 February 1964
From: "Daily Mail Wednesday, March 25, 2009 Page 26"
The TV series The White Rabbit starring Kenneth More is said to have been shown only once and then destroyed. Was it?
KENNETH MORE (1914-82) was a very British type of film star; the sort of chap who favoured Harris Tweed over leather jackets. In contrast to the tortured angst of American contemporaries such as Marlon Brando and James Dean, he portrayed a breezy charm. But there was more to More than this. His showed his skill with light comedy in the classic family film Genevieve. And as Douglas Bader in Reach For The Sky, More became a stiff-upper-lipped icon of British cinema. A Night To Remember is the definitive Titanic film, and Northwest Frontier is a glorious Boy's Own adventure romp. So he was the ideal choice to play Wing Commander F. F. E. Yeo-Thomas in the BBC production of The White Rabbit (1967). Forest Frederick Edward Yeo Thomas was the British Special Operations Executive (SOE) agent codenamed The White Rabbit in World War II. His sphere of operations was Occupied and Vichy France, and while liaising with the Resistance in Paris, 'Tommy' was betrayed, taken to the Gestapo at 84 Avenue Foch for interrogation and subjected to brutal torture. After stints in several prisons and many escape attempts, he ended up in Buchenwald concentration camp, from which he eventually escaped in 1945. The taut and suspenseful miniseries, The White Rabbit, was possibly More's best work. Sadly, it no longer exists. As More explains in his autobiography More Or Less (1978), the film copyright to White Rabbit was held by Hal Chester, who did not want the BBC series to be made in case he decided to make a film of it himself. The BBC was able to bypass this by agreeing to screen the series just once and not selling it. According to More, the then controller of features at the BBC, David Attenborough, considered the project worthy, but had the tapes destroyed. Michael Taylor, Cheltenham, Glos. '
Weird. Never heard of this man or the film given the significance of Alice.
