Please note:  These are, by no means, an exhaustive listing of the books that I use as sources for my writing.  My personal collection of physical books fills up an entire room of my house, with even more books electronically stored in my Android tablet.  However, as a rather lazy Taobabe, I only venture here to list the books when I remember to.  Rest assured though, that I am a stickler for documenting my resources.  Source material will always be listed at the bottom of each posting under the ubiquitous three-centered-dots.

    I find the anime pics at various internet sites which do nothing but post free-to-use wall art. I can create anime images myself, but since I am focusing on the writing pieces, I found that it took too long to do the illustrations as well as the writing.

  2. I’m an amateur Taoist & an I-Ching enthusiast: yours is one of my favourite sites on the internet, and I’ve been inspired by and shared many of your posts. I would be so grateful if you would look at & review my I-Ching: App of Changes — a very personal interpretation of the ancient texts that I recently released for IOS and Android. PM me if you’d like a promo code, I’d be honored to gift you a copy.


  3. I send this on behalf of Prof. Ha. Thuy has finished his 4th book titled Rewriting China’s History. He has documented his argument that during the migration ‘Out of Africa’, the migrant flow established a culture in Viet Nam before migrating north and establishing subsequent cultures in China, the Islands, and north on the mainland across the land bridge into America. I sent him excerpts from what you have written and he would like to establish direct email communication. I have provided his email address for you to reply directly to him.
    You may be surprised to know that by having an Annamite/ Bai Yue connection you also share blood with the Great Khan.
