A great film, obviously as many agree, one of the best ever, of any film. I watched it a few years ago, interesting to see it again, how it looks different, different things stand out.

An experiment in stress reduction
So after a great, but long intense movie (Of Gods and Men) I was feeling anxious and stressed about work. I decided to do an experiment to see which of 4 activities would help the most and how much. I would quantify my state of mind on a scale of 1 (good) to 10 (bad) and try 4 things for 15 min each: writing in my notebook, writing on my laptop, meditating, and reading a spiritual book. After 30...
If I decide to self-publish my new novel this post from two authors will be a major influence I think.
For my new novel I may need a new cover, image, font… Any suggestions? Cool covers, designs, fonts you’ve seen lately?
Please read and review my novella, now available on kindle.
