a tiny bit of truth

"Here is Edward Bear, coming downstairs now, bump, bump, bump, on the back of his head behind Christopher Robin. It is, as far as he knows, the only way of coming downstairs, but sometimes he feels there really is another way, if only he could stop bumping for a moment and think of it."

-A.A. Milne, Winnie the Pooh

Hi Megg!
I feel like Edward Bear sometimes myself, knowing there are easier ways to get to where I want to go and not needing to bump bump bump my head(and heart!) needlessly!

I love that passage -- and I feel that way sometimes about writing. Like there must be a less difficult way, if I only I knew what it was!
