Rereading The Book, by Alan Watts. If anyone wants to discuss, I'd be happy to. In the mean time, I'll post a few quotes - possibly taken out of context.


...in church one may decorously "rejoice" but not have real, rip-roaring fun.



...living requires effort and ingenuity...

Alan Watts flashed in my mind Saturday evening during one of the Phish sets...now if I could just remember what the heck for. Oh well, I am a big fan of his writings, have a couple of his books: The essential and Tao watercourse way.

I've read a crapload of his stuff, but I couldn't discuss any particular points.
