About the Cover Photo: Jade Snow Dragon Mountain is in Yunnan Province, China. The goddess Chenhong Baobai transformed herself into a crane to ascend the mountain and later became the mother of the Naxi people. Immortal Lake in the nearby Yak Plateau area is the revered abode of a mother goddess.
This book is dedicated to the Goddess everywhere, and most of all to my wife, Jennifer, who inspires the poetic sense in all her love as a muse, an eternal flame of love, and who deserves all my joy and devotion.
