|My horrible brainstorm web thing.|
Here's my train of thought. I've been considering the role that the "Morrie figure" plays in other literary works. Many works have a figure like Morrie--the guiding force, the supremely wise one with compassion for the younger, more inexperienced characters. Gandalf and Dumbledore are prime examples of Morrie figures in literature. So I started considering who that figure is for Alice. The more I thought about it, the less I was sure that Alice even had a Morrie. But THEN I realized that maybe Alice is the Morrie of the Wonderland stories.
