Playing Sticks and Contemplating

A very favorite game of ours is playing sticks, there are many versions of this game but my favorite is just to watch them gently float downstream and out of site.

It a good contemplating or relaxing thing, a thing that is shared without any talking ~ its a meditation thing !

Before Disney jumped all over Winnie the Pooh and Co. with their lurid colors and not so authentic stories I clung onto the proper ( in my mind ) memories of A.A. Milne and friends and have all the books published in that era.

( Probably because I am English lol )

Some of the authentic history can be found here ~

This site is dedicated to the wonderful stories found in the books,
Winnie-The-Pooh and The House at Pooh Corner, written by A. A. Milne and illustrated by E. H. Shepard.

These books were first published in the 1920s, and star the familiar characters of Piglet, Owl, Rabbit, Tigger, Kanga, Roo, Eeyore, Christopher Robin, and Edward Bear, commonly known as Winnie-the-Pooh.

Look inside the pages of the 1928 book,
'The House at Pooh Corner' by A.A. Milne, as this is where the game is invented by Pooh Bear.
