One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.”   —   A. A. Milne

The end of the summer is not the end of the world.  Here’s to October . . .”   —   A.A. Milne

(Probably my favorite month!  Although, so far this year, it’s been rainy or overcast, with above average temps.  The leaves are just beginning to turn.  We’re definitely behind schedule.  Be well and do good, friends.)    —   YUR

If one is to be called a liar, one may as well make an effort to deserve the name.”   —   A. A. Milne

Don’t underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can’t hear, and not bothering.”   —   A. A. Milne

(It’s kind of a shame that he’s remembered, almost exclusively – by shlubs like me, at least – as the guy who wrote “Winnie-the-Pooh”.  He was actually quite prolific, writing screenplays and plays, novels and non-fiction, poetry, etc., etc.  Didn’t a movie about his success with Pooh just come out recently?  I rarely go to the movies these days.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Promise me you’ll never forget me because if I thought you would, I’d never leave.”   —   A.A. Milne

(Or, maybe it’s could?  Can’t be bothered looking up a Pooh-ism!   Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

I call this Fire In The Sky. A sunrise from the workshop at the Hotel Lafayette in downtown Buffalo, New York on January 8, 2008. Photo was captured at roughly 7:30 a.m. (EST). That morning was followed by a day of record temperatures with the highs reaching nearly 70 degrees Fahrenheit (21 degrees Celsius) despite it being in the dead of winter. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

She turned to the sunlight; and shook her yellow head, and whispered to her neighbor: “Winter is dead.”     A.A. Milne

(While walking my dog this morning, in the lower Hudson Valley of New York state, the temperature was 21 degrees Fahrenheit.  When asked to comment on Mr. Milne’s statement Winter laughed:  The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.  Be well and do good, friends.  And, stay warm.)   —   YUR
