Christopher Botkin is a small-town Ohio native and archetype: engineer, newspaper editor, woodworker, surveyor, draftsman, webmaster, cynic and dreamer. A personality/aptitude test once labeled him a "Visionary Philosopher," a sublimely unmarketable skill set that, yet, rather deftly describes the author of Water Music. His life half ended when his wife and mother of his three children passed in 1986. The other half took unconventional paths that have not yet revealed their destinations. Real men write their own codes. Today, Christopher works as a laborer, pays the bills, and lives in the family home where he grew up and raised his children. They came out well. He still holds out hope for himself.Review:
