About the name of this blog

By The Tumtum Tree is a line in Jabberwocky, the nonsense poem by Lewis Carroll from one of my favorite stories, “Through The Looking Glass.” The poem is nonsense, but so elegant and amusing, and one of my favorite lines is “…so rested he by the Tumtum tree and stood awhile in thought.” It’s really what I intend to use this blog for–to stand awhile in thought–so I felt it was fitting.
