Today’s hike was on three of the Cougar Mountain trails. Wilderness Creek, Wilderness Peak and Wilderness cliffs. Great hike, very refreshing and recharging. Couple quotes from Alan Watts that stuck out today.

On describing any the non Christian approach to describing God.

“A different way of relating to the ineffable mystery that underlies ourselves and the world.” I really felt vindicated with this quote as a person that doesn’t follow the norm.

On the teachings of Buddhism and why gurus are so strict.

“Allowing relaxation through strict discipline.” This is what I’m trying to achieve with my art, strict discipline will some day yield effortless mastery some day.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
