The how of Pooh?  The Tao of who? The Tao of Pooh!

. . . in which it is revealed that one of the world’s great Taoist masters isn’t Chinese . . . or a venerable philosopher . . . but is in fact none other than that effortlessly calm, still, reflective bear, A.A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh!

While Eeyore frets . . .

. . . and Piglet hesitates

. . . and Rabbit calculates

. . . and Owl pontificates

. . . Pooh just is.

And that’s a clue to the secret wisdom of the Taoists.

Benjamin Hoff is an Oregon writer, photographer, musician, and composer with a fondness for Forests and Bears.  A Bachelor of Arts (he thinks his degree was in Asian Art, but then, he hasn’t looked at it for a while, and it may not be), he was until recently a Japanese-trained fine pruning specialist.  He now writes full time.  Well, most of the time.  The rest of the time he practices Taoist yoga, T’ai Chi Ch’uan, stunt kite-flying, boomerang shaping and (ouch!) throwing, and Taoist tennis, whatever that is.  He also enjoys sleeping and lying about on the floor.  He is the author of The Tao of Pooh, The Te of Piglet, and The Singing Creek Where the Willows Grow: The Mystical Nature Diary of Opal Whiteley.
