A multi-year project is finished at last. Last Friday, I clicked "Approve" for the publishing of "Same River, Different Water: A Veteran's Journey from Vietnam to Việt Nam." It is available either on the website or on Amazon.
I feel strange. I have worked on this thing for so long, I feel like I won't know what to do with my time.
But, I'll bet I find a way.
Most of the people who know about the book now are veterans - and I hope they don't think the book is about the war. Its not - rather its a look at the country today with some links back to the war as reference points. Its a very differnt Việt Nam than they know. Actually, I am hoping some of the veterans' wives will read it - and maybe get a different perspective on Vietnam than they have ever heard before.
And - thanx to so many people who helped me with this project - I am in many people's debt.
