The Fish Who Found the Sea Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A rediscovered treasure for a new generation: the first and only story for children ever written by Alan Watts.
Alan Watts, beloved for bringing a childlike wonder to the spiritual journey, once wrote a story for children. The Fish Who Found the Sea brings this delightful and wise parable to life for a new generation. Here is a story as timely as it is entertaining - sharing a key message about getting into harmony with the flow of life.
In this tale of a tail, we meet a fish with a curiously familiar problem - he’s gotten himself so mixed up that he spends all his time chasing himself in circles! Only the Great Sea knows how to help our poor fish get out of the mess he’s created with his own runaway thoughts. Here is a parable that perfectly captures the wit and wisdom that have made Alan Watts a timeless teacher we will never outgrow.

I did not ask for this deep thinking with a children's book that gave me elation and simultaniously feelings of COVID- as though my DNA was literally scrambling itself. My 26 six year old son told me I need to check Watt's out, and his latest great suggestion was to stop wearing coats that look like bathrobes so of course I had to check this Watts dude out. I wondered if as a kid, the peers Watts played baseball with and I am certain he played baseball because who's named Allen who didn't play baseball. Did the other players joke, "Hey, who's on first? Watts on second??!" If that never happened, I apologize. I work with a man named Dick Wadd - no joke. Short story long, I am engrossed in The Book, incredible writing. Still waiting for my signed copy. The only difference between waits and watts is the "I".
Truth be told, I haven't gotten past the dedication page, but as one writer to another, has that ever sounded right to you. I've spent more time thinking about the one sentence " dead"-ication page then the first and last lines of every book I've published.
I have confidence from my son so I gave you only five stars. I tried for 9 but don't want to be banned again. My son reassured me all the stars in the sky mean way more to you than any trolls and weirdos 'opinions on Amazon. No, he isn't stalking...umm, meant talking about me.
Back to the book, The Book, a bit cliched title but you are apparently alowed this sort of outlandsish obviousness because that is who you are. Beats The Bible - that just sounds like a baby titled it at 3 months old and maybe Jesus did, but that whole story is getting a bit old, don't you agree?
You need to be the new Gates, the new Shakespeare, Madonna, JLO, the author who wrote the pulitzer Prize winning documentary, "Watts his Name?" Run in 2024, Watts!/West! ticket. I will have to cover my face - perhaps a Burka but I will help you. I may actually vote if I get a stay by 2024.
Well, enough about me. My son, Matt, is your biggest fan, besides me. Seriously, Mr. Watts, you have a following in northern New Jersey, of all places! We don't even have full sets of teeth. In fact, you should do a pod or a show in every state -your name was made for it - Watt's in New Jersey, Watt's in Tennessee? etc. It's endless, and I can be your scribe- especially when we travel business class to Paris! Did I mention I'm a "writer" - as oposed to a lefter, but I can learn to give up the arm rest and the window seat - jeez. Let's take the book route first, Then the Oscars. Just change the cover.
NIce meeting you. My books are listed under Elizabeth Hoban (non-fiction) and LIz Hoban.(fiction) I'll give you some free advise (non-fiction) If I don't hear from you in the next ten years, there will be consequences. Yeah!! Watts in Burma? What's in the Arctic? I do want to know? Like the "click click" languge my son says is so wrong but when I say it - there is no question whom I'm referring to. You know the click click language? If not, we are no longer business partners. Let's sart with Watts in Walla Walla? I'll be your straight woman, or not. Personal Assistant pays better anyway. x
If you've read this far then the enire northern NJ fan base is shot to hell. My son may need to move out.
So all the best, you can call me Bette if I call you Al? No, okay,
