I am beginning on the edit of one of my pieces, and it is turning out to be a very confusing process. I’ve been reading a bit of Winnie the Pooh today, and what he says here fits my state of mind perfectly:

When you are a Bear of Very Little Brain, and Think of Things, you find sometimes that a Thing which seemed very Thingish inside you is quite different when it gets out into the open and has other people looking at it.

    You are a bear of a very generous heart, Darc.

    I haven’t done enough Pooh reading when I was supposed to, Indigo, but I’m catching up now.

    That is one of my favorite Pooh quotes. There is still a good bit of Pooh reading going on at my house.

    Ah, the wisdom of the Pooh! How great the insight.

    I must indeed be a bear of very little brain.
