Listening to Another Alan Watts Lecture at 7:17AM


This one, exactly.

He has a bit of a cough.

“How could there be an unexperienced world?” he asks.

I don’t know but I’d like to experience one, if there is one to experience.

“If there are no muscles, nothing is heavy.”

I am about to be creative now.

I am being creative so that I will feel better–

I am improving myself, or consolidating my moods into a

better place than where they are.

My habits indicate to me,

if they indeed can be indicative,

that in the past listening to Alan Watts can make me

feel better than how I am currently feeling.


I am squeezing the fat on my forearm when he says,

“This school has had immense influence in the

20th century.”

In order to say something meaningful…


You need to believe in words. Do words require faith?

I wonder if words

have been put here by an accident

and perpetuated by a secret

illness we are all succumbing to.


This is one of the reasons listening to

Alan Watts at 7:23AM

is hopefully going to help me.


Oh God, there is no escape.


less distance

between things,

less thinkings between


smokey mountain

calls the overlaid

jewel godesses to worship at its

smokey feet.
