As wandering on and on in a great forest with no thought of return, it is at that moment you are a perfectly rational being; you learn purposelessness

There was a young man who said, "Though
It seems that I know that I know.
What I would like to see
Is the I that knows me
When I know that I know that I know."
Quote from The Religion of No-Religion by Alan Watts

Wow, I really liked that. I think I'm going to try and put that in a painting that I'm doing :)

haha, I had no idea that I had an account on here.. I guess I forgot about some research I was doing in Switzerland last year. Anyways, this is Christine.

Hey Christine! I'm glad you enjoyed the little limerick by Alan Watts. I've been a fan of his work. Oh, and I'd like to see that painting when it's done!

Definitely! I tend to plan things out in my head for quit some time so don't be surprised if 5 years down the road you get a picture from me of the painting ;)

I completely understand! I'll be looking forward to it, whenever it arrives :)
