Life is like a box of chocolates. It’s for the enjoyment, amirite?

According to philosopher Alan Watts, life is not a rat race, but more like a song.

“Music, as an art form, is essentially playful,” he says. “We say, ‘You play the piano,’ you don’t work the piano.'”

The point of a playing song is not to finish first, but just to play it and enjoy it.

“The whole point of the dancing is the dance.”

Here’s a pretty cool video that David Lindberg put together featuring Watts’ lecture where he said these things.
