In Search of Winnie the Pooh

As I walked to pick up my daughter from school today, I listened to a mix of music my husband made for me, called “Is It Fun?” Up popped a version of House at Pooh Corner that always strikes me whenever I hear it. It is such a simple song, but it touches me in a place that I yearn to get to.  I mean, think of the words:

Help me if you can I’ve got to get

back to the house at Pooh corner by one.

You’d be surprised there’s so much to be done.

Count all the bees in the hive,

Chase all the clouds from the sky.

Back to the days of Christopher Robin and Pooh (Kenny Loggins)

This song is meant to bring you back to the days of innocence; the days when every minute was a pleasure, because entertainment came from seeing the world as a place of wonder. I realized as I walked that I need to regain that innocence. But is that even possible? I tried to remember a time when I did view the world that way, and I can’t. I assume when I was little I had those moments, but they are lost in the mist of time. The moments of childhood I do remember include me being a miniature version of myself as an adult. by this I mean that I have always been too focused on doing the right thing, or being perceived a certain way. I don’t remember too many moments of chasing fireflies or seeing pictures in the clouds. I know I had them, but I don’t remember them.

I don’t want that for my daughter. I don’t want that for myself. So from now on, I’m one with Winnie the Pooh. I’m going to go chase clouds now. See you at Pooh Corner.
