live fully now

For my birthday I can't think of anything more fitting than sharing this bonus video featuring one of my most used authors for quote of the day posts, Alan Watts. He was a 20th century British philosopher, writer, and speaker. Watts had a beautiful way of expressing his insights and wisdom. I love that this video uses a recording of his voice, lending to it a rich old-recording sound. I particularly enjoy how the urgent pace of his speech contrasts his message about the importance of slowing down and living now.  

No valid plans for the future can be made by those who have no capacity for living now.

Remember to focus on the things that matter, instead of the things that don't. Back to your regularly scheduled programming next week!
