That Kind of Afternoon When You Just Know… (mostly the music & a link) August 21, 2021

“Christopher Robin came down from the Forest to the bridge, feeling all sunny and careless, and just as if twice nineteen didn’t matter a bit, as it didn’t on such a happy afternoon, and he thought if he stood on the bottom rail of the bridge, and leant over, and watched the river slipping slowly away beneath him, then he would suddenly know everything there was to be known, and he would be able to tell Pooh, who wasn’t quite sure of it. But when he got to the bridge and saw all the animals there, then he knew that it wasn’t that kind of afternoon, but the other kind, when you wanted to do something.



– quoted from “Chapter 6, In Which – Pooh Invents a New Game and Eeyore Joins In” of The House at Pooh Corner by Alan Alexander Milne, with illustrations by Ernest Howard Shephard

Christopher Robins Milne, the inspiration for the Winnie-the-Pooh books, was born today in 1920. Today’s practice is not the “usual” Pooh-inspired class, but check out this 2016 post to discover someone who likes to explore enchanted places.
