Nice book

Recommended Posts

I've just finished reading "Seeing Things" the autobiography of Oliver Postgate. For non-English readers, he was/is the inspired creator of Bagpuss, Ivor the Engine, Noggin The Nog, and other formative influences of my youth.


Anyway, it's a very nice read, unassuming, honest and evocative of a certain period of English history.


I'm mentioning it becuase somewhere about page 350, just after an operation, he has an experience where he looks out of the hospital window and instantly becomes one with life and everything, his small anxious self is revealed as non-existent, and joy floods through his body. And, perhaps because he has no spiritual background whatsoever, he describes it all so simply and nicely that I thought folks might find it helpful.
