Have you ever read The Tao of Pooh? No? You should. I always loved how Winnie the Pooh was so easygoing, almost aloof, and Piglet worried sometimes, but cared more, and trusted more. The Tao of Pooh, though, put into perspective how, really, he’s maybe just wiser to the more important things in life… enjoying it without worry. Going with the flow. And some of A.A. Milne’s quotes from the Winnie the Pooh books border on ridiculous. I laugh at them. Wholeheartedly. But then there are quotes like this, that remind me that while it is important to laugh, it is also important to forget time, forget future, forget past. Forget that there are deadlines and tough times and places to be. Enjoy today. Laugh today. Love today.

“What day is it?”, asked Winnie the Pooh.
“It’s today,” squeaked Piglet.
“My favorite day,” said Pooh.
