"We the undersigned, being of very little brain and stout body, do hereby issue (pardon our sneezing) this proclamation. In the realization that we all share a common love of this Hundred Acre expanse and the inhabitants therein, we did desire to form a society unto ourselves whereby we might freely discuss anything and everything related to this blessed Forest. The Crustimoney Proseedcake in such cases is to start a maililng list, and so we have.
"Being members of that virtual extended family otherwise known as The Friends Zone, and this mailing list being a sublist thereof, we have thus christened it The Zone Enchanted Place.
"Not desiring to keep a good thing all to ourselves, but rather desiring the proliferation of Pooh awareness in the world in general, we open this society to any who hold sacred the childhood fantasies of one Christopher Robin Milne (1920-1996), as set forth in print by his father Alan Alexander (1882-1956). We let these pages stand as a memorial to all that they have given the world."
"But, of course, it isn't really Good-bye, because the Forest will always be there...and anybody who is Friendly with Bears can find it." - A.A.M.
