You don’t need to imagine it anymore. If you think real hard, do you ever remember a door at the top of the hill? It was just over the river past the lake. I certainly do! Let me tell you a little story about it. 

It is true! There is a colorful door at the top of a blue covered hill!
Will you climb up the hill with me and knock on the door?
Will it be locked? Is it old? Do we dare open the door? Who will answer it? 

Do we enter in or should we knock? Wait! Look! There’s a hole cut out on the bottom of the door. Let’s look inside first. 

What do you see? 
I see silence. 

What do you hear? 
I hear bright beautiful colors! 

There are mushrooms and flowers growing from here to the horizon! 
What do you smell? It smells like lilacs and forget-me-knots.

Should we come back through this door to enter in?
They say if you look closely over the horizon you'll see it. 
It’s just over the river past the lake.

What do you think is on the other side of the mysterious door, another horizon?

What's the purpose of this door--to lock something in or to lock something out? What's on the other side of it's threshold? I wonder. . . 

I know I'm daring enough to open the mysterious door and go through, are you? Be brave! Come along with me!

I put my ear to the door and listen. 
I hear nothing but silence. 

Come now, take my hand. Okay, hang on while I turn the door knob and we'll walk through together.

As the door slowly opens we're happily greeted by a little white rabbit. I hear a familiar song in the distance. The lyrics speak of a girl named Alice. “I know that song--come on!” I implore, "Let's go find Alice”!

What a wonderfully whimsical land! There are magical red mushrooms with white spots that loom about and it's a colorful serene place. The little white rabbit leads the way.
