    Life of Inventing

    Life of Inventing is to example a systematic approach to enhancing creativity in the line of inventing mechanical devices that perform work, or some type of product that has usefulness.

    What I intended by writing this book is to provide a step-by step recipe to create perceptually from an idea for the purpose of acquiring a United States patent. An idea is the ­first wave of intellectual property that develops into three-dimensional personal property of the creator or inventor. There is a certain mind-set required to create and become successful. The text in this book is meant to enhance your inventing experiences.

    It takes many years of inventing and writing provisional patent drafts to acquire the knowledge that will make an idea come to life, in a way, so rewards can be collected for twenty years into the future for the person who spends the time reading and understanding this successful method to create a product from an idea.

    Also written within the text of this book are experiences learned while developing products as an independent inventor. The designs of inventions exhibited within the content of this book are intended to example a timeline to produce a tangible result from the onset of an idea to the completion of the product invention. In short, the writer of this text is an expert in this field of creativity and writing really good provisional patent drafts—from thirty-three years of inventing experiences. The written text can become your gold mine of information once clearly understood.

    About the author:

    The author is from a small town in Ohio. The town becomes noticeable when he was ten years old and still up on the map. He went to a small elementary school, first to eighth grade and then to high school with five other elementary school students as a freshman. He started with his homeroom in the journalist room, which was there until he graduated. He headed in the large university. All kinds of things happened from then and now-car accident, heart attack-and back outside of the same small town, there he started with. Retired from teaching and now working on this book, the author hopes his family, some friends, and past co-workers may enjoy this book.

    Prayers in Hell

    King Midas – the legend says – transformed everything he touched into gold. Theodor Damian transforms everything he touches into poetry.

    Sequences from street life, landscapes, people’s gestures, usually looked upon as banalities, disclose, under his eye, their beauty. Other contemporary authors make poetry out of poetry. Theodor Damian makes poetry out of daily reality.

    The blase man of the twenty first century has a lot to learn from this book. Reading it one can rediscover the joy of life. It is a resurrection exercise.

    Alex Stefanescu

     

    This is an exceptional book, a synthesis of the poet’s lyric and philosophical vision on how the impossible looses its limits when it is immersed in prayer. In Damian’s poetry the “I” of the lyrical and the “I” of metaphysical reflection complement each other in total harmony and become definitory for the poet’s work when they meet in the profound dimensions of Christian spirituality.

    Prayers in Hell represents an editorial event of utmost importance in the landscape so arid and so repetitive of our contemporary poetry.

    M. N. Rusu

     

    About the author:

    Theodor Damian is a theologian, writer and editor, born in Romania. He is currently Professor of Philosophy and Ethics at the Metropolitan College of New York.
