My Book, "The Phoenix, the Tiger, and the Rose"
I spoke about algorithms. My book is at the bottom of the barrel, but it’s okay. I have a confession to make: I wrote it for someone and that someone is the only person in the world I need to read it. I never wrote it for money or fame and prior to releasing it to the public, I pondered about mentioning his first name on a dedication page, but in the end, felt best not to.
When he reads my book, he'll know.
Cryptic. But I still have some secrets that must remain intact and we will see how things play out.
I'm a firm believer that coincidence is more than just that. Even if one's lifetime has been filled with them, all of which has led to repeated heartache. The expression, "whatever doesn't kill us, only makes us stronger", comes to mind. I wouldn't be who I am today, and for that I'm grateful. Yes, even for the pain, and will just leave it at that, for now.

The card in my book, shown in my book trailer (I made the clips by myself, like all my videos, and again let me state that none of what I do is about making money. It's all from the heart, in service to others because when I leave this world, I'd like to fly away with the angels).
While legally I was not allowed to add the poem that went with Alan Runner's letter (last chapter of my book), here it is and no truer words have ever been said IMO. I still tear up reading it.
"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.
That myth is more potent than history.
That dreams are more powerful than facts.
That hope always triumphs over experience.
That laughter is the only cure for grief.
And I believe that love is stronger than death. "
