      1. Thank you for saying that. I’ve got one out already. It’s funny that I started off with non-fiction books. After this one its poems and short stories- before I graduate to a full novel. (Go to amazon and put in my full name- it’s faster -Vivian Nzegbulem )

      2. I saw your profile on Amazon and I see that you wrote Practical Tips For Living On A Shoestring Budget. I was impressed with what I read, so I clicked the FOLLOW button to get updates on you.

    1. I have no idea what to do with this book as it has been sitting in my computer for five years now. It was my second book out of three and none of them are published. I thought this one had the most potential, but you are right, it is a bit long. I had two different artists draw the pictures, one was a local High School girl and the other is a professional who has done some work on Marvel Comics. I paid about $1,000 for the artwork, so it belongs to me.

      1. It has to be frustrating to have written 3 books but not published them. I have heard from a few different people that they can’t get their books published because they don’t fit into a neat little genre box. I find it hard to believe that there isn’t a publishing company out there that specializes in these types of books. Very interesting on the original artwork.

      2. My first book is a history book titled Man’s Footprint In Water and it is meant to be a coffee table book that you can open up to any page and read different short stories about people and water. My third book is titled So You Want To Learn Calculus and I wrote that to help students understand a subject that I struggled with, but this is not for everyone as it goes into different theories and quantum physics stuff. All of my books are very long and I may decide to write a new one on Music Appreciation, which is what I am mostly interested in now.

      3. In 1885, Sigmund Freud (1856–1939) Austrian neurologist who became known as the founding father of psychoanalysis, turned toward the practice of medical psychopathology. Sigmund Freud psychoanalytic approach opened the door for dreams to become a subject of scientific research. Freud said some dreams have the symbolic meaning of man’s sexual organ. All dream ideas which consist of three parts can mean the man’s sexual organ. Phallus is symbolically substituted with all things that are similar to it by their form, namely long things that jut out. The phallus is also substituted with objects from which water runs: pipes, watering-pots and fountains.
        Carl Jung’s favorite story went something like this. A tribe sent seekers out into the desert searching for the Water of Life. The Water showed itself in the world by bubbling forth from an artesian well. After a long journey the seekers came upon the well and drank from its invigorating waters. They felt life surge through them and were truly satisfied. They sent for the tribe, which soon arrived. There were many people gathered around the spring, so a wall was built to protect the purity of its crystal water. As the people arrived shops and buildings sprang up. Roads were built. Eventually to organize access and pay for the necessary administrative costs a charge was made for drinking from the vitalizing waters. Still the people came. And then one day the people woke up and the Water of Life had gone. Water still flowed, but it was not the Water of Life. People drank, but in time realized their loss. The people sent seekers out and the cycle began again.

      4. Good story. About Freud…. he was a coke head, and coke raises one’s libido, so it stands to reason he saw everything through the idea of sexuality (phallic symbolism). You sent this twice. Where is the Jung one? Also, do cover Hindu pantheon in your water book? I know in the dream analysis class I took this fall they have a lot of mythology around water and creation.

      5. Jung is there in the second paragraph starting with “Carl Jung’s favorite story went…” Many religions are mentioned such as Hindus, Vedic, Zoroastrian pagans, Taoism, Confucianism, Buddhism, Muslims, communists, socialists, Marxists, Utopians and atheists and the Hindu’s made significant contributions to water. Sorry about that twice thing as that happens when I click my mouse too hard.

  1. Here is some Hindu stuff for you.
    Around 2000 BC, the ancient Hindu’s directed people to heat foul water by boiling and exposing to sunlight and by dipping a piece of hot copper into it seven times, filtering it and then cooling it in an earthen vessel. Man has persistently pursued ‘pure’ water for thousands of years, however early humans thought that the taste of the water determined its purity, as they never considered that even the best tasting water could contain disease-causing organisms. Water is an intrinsic part of most spiritual beliefs. Its uses and symbolism in religion are many and varied; its spiritual and healing properties are seen in rites and rituals; and its representations are as numerous as they are diverse. Devote Hindus sprinkle water around their food when it is served, to purify the food and make it worthy of the gods, this is accompanied by some mantras or prayers. Bathing is one of the five daily duties in Hinduism, and not performing it leads to sin, according to some scriptures.
    An important part of ritual purification in Hinduism is the bathing of the entire body, particularly in rivers considered holy such as the Ganges, in order to maintain purity. Ganges is the most revered river in the world and is unique because of the reverence and affection that is shown to it by the people of India and the world. According to the Puranas (Holy Scriptures of Hindus), the sight, the name and the touch of Ganges takes away all sins. As per Hindu thoughts, bathing in the river on special occasions causes remission of sins and facilitates the attainment of salvation. It is considered that Ganges bestows blessings of the highest order. People come from far and near to immerse the ashes of their kin in the waters of Ganges, with a belief that the ashes would go to heaven.

    1. Yes, my first unpublished book. It is far from being ready for publication, as being a coffee table book, it is intended to have at least one picture associated with each of the hundreds of stories and it does not contain any pictures yet.

      1. I had several jobs working as an engineer with water treatment. I spoke with a history professor who told me that I would have to be insane to write this book going back to the beginning of time and finding stories where people had connections with water. Every story that I found made me want to find more and eventually it became a book.

      2. Aha, way leading on to way. Yes, we are a water planet, so it is expected there are a lot of water stories from humans. Even if you don’t capture all of the stories, you’ve started the process. Like I was saying with your other book, you could break it down into volumes. It’s a worthy project!

      3. It would probably consist of 11 volumes as once the pictures get added the book will get very big.
        Introduction – Early Man Getting His Feet Wet – Open Water
        Chapter 1 – Ancient Man Makes a Splash – Water Under the Bridge
        Chapter 2 – Treading Water in Antiquity – Does not Hold Water
        Chapter 3 – Early Civilization Takes a Plunge – Splish Splash
        Chapter 4 – Moist, Damp and Wet – Still Waters Run Deep
        Chapter 5 – Drenched in Dark Water – Purified with Soap & Water
        Chapter 6 – Wandering Water Gushes – Crossing the Water
        Chapter 7 – Renaissance Refreshments – Water Resurgence
        Chapter 8 – Understanding Water – Going With the Flow
        Chapter 9 – Conquest of Water – Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Get Back Into The Water
        Chapter 10 – Boiled in Water – Bubbles Form & Rise to the Surface
        It stops at the year 1900 and it could actually go on forever, as more information exists from this time onward.

      4. p.s. Have you ever seen the movie (on netflix), “The Secret of Kells”? It’s a beautifully animated movie about how the Book of Kells came about . The movie is worth seeing for the animation alone, but the idea is that back in the day people spent lifetimes creating books.
