‘Doing Nothing Often Leads to the Very Best of Something.’ – Pooh

‘You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you.  You have to go to them sometimes.’    Winnie-the Pooh

‘If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient.  It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.’    Winnie-the-Pooh

‘What day is it?’

‘It’s Today,’ squeaked Piglet.

‘May favorite Day,’ said Pooh.

Today I saw the movie, Christopher Robin, and it was a delight!

I am a stuffed bear admirer and collector…but the calming wisdom of Pooh was a balm for the spirit.

The film focuses on Christopher Robin, as an adult, with a wife and daughter and corporate worries that have caused him to forget the joys of the Hundred Acre Wood.

At one point Christopher’s daughter, Evelyn, tells her father, ‘Your life is happening right now in front of you.’

Winnie is a proponent of doing nothing, leading to something…’People say ‘Nothing is impossible,’ but I do nothing every day.’    Pooh

The movie was a lesson in Winnie’s, old friend, Christopher Robin, not being able to, ‘see the forest for the trees.’  The Pooh’s philosophy is to let life happen and enjoy the experience.

The lessons of the movie and Winnie-the-Pooh…are simple and sweet…and profound.  They are timely for all ages…and perhaps the older…the better?

The Real-Life Christopher Robin

‘Christopher Robin Milne was born in Chelsea, London, on August 21, 1920, just 21 months after the Great War ended.  He was the first an only child born to former British officer Alan Alexander Milne and his wife Daphne de Selincourt.  His father, a screenwriter and novelist by trade, drew inspiration from Christopher’s stuffed animals, particularly a teddy bear named Edward (the name ‘Winnie’ came from a bear they saw at the London Zoo), to create stories about the friends’ adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood. ‘    Country Living

  1. Reblogging to my sister site “Timeless Wisdoms”

    1. Thank you, my friend. 🐻🍯

  2. Haven’t seen this one yet, but I saw the 2017 British Film “Goodbye Christopher Robbin” about Christopher Robbin’s childhood. It was quite sad. 😦 This one looks much more upbeat, I’ll look for it in the cinemas.

    1. I have seen ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin’ and I think that you will enjoy this one much more. 🐻🍯

  3. I should go and see this film. I was weaned on Pooh (as it were) and used to live not far from 100 Aker Wood; my son still does and has been known to hunt Heffalumps after dark. http://bitaboutbritain.com/in-search-of-pooh/
