Sailing on a Solar Wind, is a short philosophical work on Nostagia. Instead of taking the boring analytical approach, Michael Naaden, writes his thoughts out in a fictional story, making it both readable and accessible without the nuances of the academic world. How do we relate to our memories and old feelings we haven't visited on in a while? There are as many answers as there are people who ask the question.
The story follows Alisa Mentyka as she ponders and complains about her life and memories. As a character, she has no serious flaws, which puts her at odds with much of the existential tradition in philosophy. Existential characters are often out of proportion and have obvious errors, making them caricatures of their own topic. This, the author feels, is a cop-out for a difficult topic as the topic
This book is inspired by various themes from anime and Pink Floyd.

About the Author

Michael Naaden is the middle child in a family of thirteen and while not Irish, most certainly Roman Catholic. Michael was educated in philosophy and dabbled in Sacred Music at Franciscan University where his normal antagonism towards everything normal bred a sense of deviant intellectualism under Dr. John White. His studies would see him sing for nine semesters in the Schola Franciscana, the university's choir, and nearly completing a master's in Philosophy.
Under the disillusion of a chaotic modern philosophy and a traumatized postmodern world Michael has lived most of his life confused about everything. Yet in this confusion lies both the solution and the story to understand the world. As a writer he seeks to counterattack the assault on normality in his philosophical works, by creating the world Michael would rather see, than the one we live in.
He is also known for loving Genesis (Peter Gabriel Era), Pink Flyod, anime and video games.
