Accidental Poet

Something to think about from Alan Watts

For when a man

no longer confuses himself

with the definition of himself

that others have given him,

He is at once

Universal and unique.

~ Alan Watts ~

    Zen then?
    Bought the sixties back as if there were no intervening years.

      Thanks Dave, but I can't take any credit for this one. I'm just an admirer of the words of Alan Watts.

      • Doggerel Dave

        Yes, AP I'm aware this was a quote and not your original work. It's just that I haven't heard or seen the name Alan Watts for nigh on fifty years.
        Not going to make a habit of this, though, are you?

        Very true AP.
