About the Book

Over 2’500 years ago it was once said by a great and prominent sage, that a tao that can be explained is not a tao, but if a tao cannot be explained then what is it, is it something more or something less than the tao it reflects to explain, or is it something more completely different and separate from the tao that is unexplainable, well perhaps maybe it is not, or perhaps maybe it is the tao of the electric arc of the tao tian xiao sheng temple, or perhaps maybe it is only the tao of dreamers, who knows, and yet isn’t it profoundly funny that in this great day and age of technological innovation and advancement, that we can all seem to explain what took place over 2’500 years ago and yet we can hardly begin to explain what took place over 2 weeks ago, wow! isn’t that tao.

About the Author

As a young boy at school, I always found myself playing with words & rhymes especially when it came to writing poetry, it wasn't the fact that I was especially gifted or talented but it was mainly my enthusiasm, and style & ability to be creative with words and rhyme in my own unique way, although in this day and age some may regard this as a small degree of autism but I’m not quite certain about that, as many of my peers could be just as challenging and inventive about writing prose. When I left school at the age of 16 I attended dance school and was as far removed from literature as anyone could possibly be, but I always kept a diary and also decided to study English Language part time. During break time and in between classes once again I would find myself writing & exploring various themes using rap, rhyme and spoken word to amuse myself and my fellow classmates with. At that time I didn't take it too seriously but I loved the fact that through expression along with the effect of creative writing was becoming an inspiration to me as well as a positive tool for expression.
