Migration's Magical Realism

The experience of migration, of moving to a new habitat or locale, brings with it a magic-like experiences of the new environments. The relationship between cause and effect breaks down, and it takes more (or less) effort to do things that once seemed easy (or difficult). Alice's experience in Through the Looking Glass has a migration-like feel to it as she runs with the Red Queen in the Garden of Live Flowers.
