“There was once a stonecutter who was dissatisfied with himself and with his position in life . . .”
Recently, I read a book called The Tao of Pooh. This charming little book is centered on the premise that one can understand the fundamentals of Taoism through a close reading of Winnie the Pooh, the classic children’s book series.
In the book, the author attempts to demonstrate the truth of this premise by engaging examples from the Pooh stories and writing a dialogue between himself and the sweet yellow bear.
