An expression derived from Alice in Wonderland
where one finds them selves stumbling into (an) ever stranger circumstance(s). A further indication of the expression can be that you let your self get side tracked
by something alluring
(such as a white rabbit
) to wind up in these circumstances
is such a place where no doubt many find them selves ever drawn on such off track journey
s into the strange.
