In the course of the reading I mention a few Chinese characters:

觀 guan, Seeing – the bird with great eyes and a crest, a heron:

guan, seeing, from hanziyuan.net

and 好 hao, ‘loving, good’ (from 33.4), showing a mother and child:

Chinese character hao ?, good

  1. From the author
    The image of mother and son is astounding. My son had begun editing my book after extreme problems finding an editor. All I found were focused on what is known or considered. I can find the fault points. My son can ask the right questions. This book has become the first partnership of my life. We are now in a full-scale reconsideration of the whole book from our collaborative viewpoints.
    Lance delves into ideas I just assumed. He is by profession a musician and a composer so every word counts. The result has been an extraordinary new perspective on American history.
