You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you.

You have to go to them sometimes.

If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart.

I’ll stay there forever.


No animal, according to the rules of animal-etiquette, is ever expected to do anything strenuous, or heroic, or even moderately active during the off-season of winter.


Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.

Ah, "mindful" is a good name for such music. It's how I feel when I listen to, say, Van Morrison's album Astral Weeks.

I don't use any of the streaming music services (like Pandora) but I really should, as it seems like there's a lot of great music to be found. Weirdly, I discover most music now on youtube. It's a strange feeling to not be relying on one's personal collection of CDs and tapes in order to listen to music...

I don't know much about this Japanese group, but they make beautiful albums. No vocals, just lush musical landscapes. I often will let their albums play right on through and start again, multiple times, while barely noticing.

Much as I hate to leave, we must continue our journey. Thanks, Christopher Robin, for a most welcome respite.

Time to roll on. Adios Amigo's.

I have enjoyed my visit to this region very very much. Thank you Christopher Robin.

Alas ... it is time to move along.

“The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say”

Thank you for the hospitality, but a drifter must drift!

Ah, you are very kind to say. I greatly enjoyed having your company in my sleepy little region. Stop by anytime.

And stay safe out there!

There's something familiar about this poem, but I can't quite put my finger on it... :P
