I’m an entertainer. I’m no Buddhist philosopher.
Alan was indeed an entertainer. In his days at Esalen he would give his lectures while he was roaring drunk but they were always entertaining. Watts loved women and was always in a relationship with women half his age, marrying three times. Watts died in 1973 from complications of a lifetime of alcoholism. Watts was a spiritual man, a brilliant lecturer and writer and, most of all, just a man and I love him all the more for this.
