It is an escape from Christopher Robin. It is the story of a young man who left home, and in one of his pockets he had a handful of talents given him by his mother and in the other a handful given him by his father. What did he do with them?

There is much to like about this book. It covers a large portion of the authors life, and follows on from his previous book, The enchanted places. It provides a rare insight into the life of a very shy man, and how he came to make the decisions he did. It can at times be a cause for frustration, due to a lack of detail regarding some issues, and a habit of creating a vague timeline that can be hard to fathom. If nothing else, it helps to bring the author out of the shadow of his prestigious father.

Absolutely loved it. Writing from the heart. Christopher is a very talented writer in his own right. Not to be compared to his Dad. Would also highly recommend his previous book 'The Enchanted Places' which is a wonderful account of his childhood. Very honest and heartwarming.

A few weeks ago, as I was making room for a Christmas ornament on a book shelf, I spotted a book that I haven't visited in a while - a book by Christopher Milne, "The Path Through the Trees." The last time I took a walk through Milne's word-trees, so to say, was when I was working on my book Present Perfect. Back then (as I typically do when I read) I had dog-eared some pages to mark a few favorite hangouts of my mind. So, as I took the book off the shelf, this forest of words, I knew exactly where I wanted to go... To this place:

"Everything in the man's world must grow. Yet nowhere outside his world does this happen. All living creatures, plants and animals alike, reach eventually the particular size that suits them best and there they stop. Of course it is our burning ambition for better and still better, our insatiable appetite for more and yet more that has taken us to the top of the ladder. But now and again it does no harm to look down at the others and see how they manage their affairs. We may be different from them. But are we so very different? So it seemed to me then and still seems to me now that life without growth ought to be possible."

Yes, life without growth ought to be possible. Maybe you, reader, are already well enough - even if you are not as well as you would ideally like to be... Maybe, as you plan another year, maybe you need not do any better than you did the year before... Maybe there's been enough progress...

As I see it, a shift from material consumerism to psychological acquisitiveness or spiritual perfectionism is more of a regression than a progression.

I find it both curious and not curious that the words ambition and ambulation are related - both are rooted in the Latin verb "ambulare" which means "to walk around. Goals, aspirations, ambitions walk us away from What Is. And What Is - exactly as it is - can be enough, if we choose to think that it is.
