“Alice thought she had never seen such a curious croquet ground in her life; it was all ridges and furrows; the croquet balls were live hedgehogs, the mallets were flamingos, and the soldiers had to double themselves up and stand on their hands and feet to make arches” (Carol, L. Alice in Wonderland, 1932). Group life too, can have an equal expression of newness, life, mystery and change.
