Happy Winnie-the-Pooh Day!
You can’t stay in your corner of the forest, waiting for others to come to you; you have to go to them sometimes.
Today is Winnie-the-Pooh Day, to commemorate A.A. Milne’s birthday. So a hats-off to Edward Bear, more fondly known as Winnie the Pooh. Allegedly a “Bear of very little brain,” we know better and can spot a Taoist Master when we see one :-)
Today’s mitzvah: Help enhance a child’s sense of wonder through books, with a free click-to-donate at The Literacy Site. And reward yourself with some Poo-ish wisdom from the Thousand Acre Wood.
