What's in a legacy?

We should all hope to raise children who can see expansive meaning in the contributions we have made in our lives. Often the best way to interpret our life's work is through the insights that one has into our personal journeys. Just another reason to keep on writing.

Letters can tell us so much.
Today, we will be getting deep inside the inner-workings of Alan Watts, widely known as the philosopher who first popularized Zen Buddhism and other Eastern philosophies for the counterculture of the 1960s. The brand new, never before published book The Collected Letters of Alan Watts is a treasure trove of letters that was discovered and lovingly curated by his first born children, Joan and Anne Watts.

The book begins with letters Watts wrote home from boarding school as a teenager, highlighting his flowering interest in Zen Buddhism. As Watts comes into his own, foregoing traditional education to create his own "self imposed university" and eventually leaving the priesthood, he corresponds with such luminaries as Joseph Campbell, Henry Miller, Gary Snyder and Aldous Huxley.

The Piketon Massacre
The Piketon Massacre
On the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Piketon, Ohio - eight members of the Rhoden family were viciously murdered execution style in their homes. Two years later in 2018, their neighbors, the Wagners, were arrested and charged with committing the largest massacre in Ohio’s history. Shocked by the arrests, this once close-knit and religious community remains divided and unable to cope. Was a respected and reputable Piketon family responsible for this unimaginable murder spree? Our team will examine the deep ties that connected both families. We’ll examine the evidence and possible motives for the crimes. For the first time we’ll speak with townspeople, psychological experts, respected investigators, friends and members of both families. Are the Wagners responsible for the murders, and if convicted, will they be executed? Or is it possible that there is still a murderer at large waiting to kill again?
