“One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. “Which road do I take?” she asked. “Where do you want to go?” was his response. “I don’t know,” Alice answered. “Then,” said the cat, “it doesn’t matter.”

The waxing February moon seen through the branches of a eucalyptus tree in my back yard last night gives me an idea of how a Cheshire cat with a grin that appears and disappears might have been such a moon.
