LoD, Lover of Donald, doesn't need to talk to himself.... that's what all the voices in his head are for.

Alan Watts.

First time I heard him was on NPR while in college. It was like 2 in the morning or something, the music stopped and a voice started talking. As I listen I couldn't pay attention to anything else. I was mesmerized by every word coming out of my speakers. It was like someone was literally explaining the meaning of life. Speaking a language I knew but had never heard.

It became a habit. A night class I never signed up for but looked forward to more than anything else.

Alan Watts was a brilliant mind.

In today's world. His words would be cathartic.

Watts was fascinating to watch/hear as a student. He remains so today.
