:lol: Yeah, that was fun. It seems to me he had a great joy for Life and a love for Life as The Divine Mystery.

Love Watts. That video is nice. I like his framing of the shift from reacting to creating, from victim to willing participant. He certainly does have an attractive sense of stillness and wonder when he speaks.

I caught the video on my way out last night! Was sitting here in my little black dress & heels, hair up--my "Audrey" look, so I could go out with a group of people to a crazy, crowded restaurant. You know the kind...so noisy you can't hear the person seated next to you speak! Ugh. I have a hangover, & I didn't even drink anything! Coffee & Mr. Watts to the rescue! Very nice. Thanks for posting this SandyJoy.

Ah Alan Watts. He's got such a nice sounding voice, he reminds me of an old jedi master!
