Hello, my dear readers. With your permission, I want to tell you a few stories, stories that take the soul and make each of us think. I believe too much in love and that it will save each of us. Love endures for a long time, love can wait and be merciful. Unfortunately, quite often love loses its meaning, and become only ordinary words on paper, spoken out of habit. However, it is more important not only to hear the words of love, but also, first of all, to feel it, to know that on the planet of this you are not alone. Probably, when a person has such thoughts in his head, he feels happy and spiritual. It often happens that a person meets love, which becomes the love of his life. Without a doubt, this gift is given from above, a gift to love a person and is with him, to carry your feelings together through the years and decades. Loving people are very wise people, they are able to take care not only about themselves, but also about others. They listen and hear a person. A loving person does not exchange for small, meaningless household quarrels. Indeed, it is difficult to look in one direction, even if people are different. In such a situation, it is necessary to find a compromise or one of the lovers must yield. Love can not be described in words. This is an incredible thing, which, at times, is difficult to understand. Yes, and do not do this. The most important thing is to feel it at least once in your life, to witness its birth in your soul. It seems that love is a mystery that can not be solved. However, for myself, I understand it this way: love is a non-indifference. When you feel warmth, joy, fullness with someone, when you spend time with a person and you know that not a single minute is lost for nothing, when you want to be together again and again, and also want a person happiness and want to help him - this is is love. Also, love is gratitude and acceptance of another as it is. This is a state of mind when you have everything for happiness near someone, and the whole world is happy with you. Love is not just for another person. There is love for the Motherland, your native land, the piece of land on which every flower is dear to you. Personally, I have such warm feelings associated with my mother and father, close friends, my beloved cat, and also - with our house, trees in the garden, children's toys, favorite books, even a bicycle! Perhaps this is not love in the high sense, which philosophers and artists reason, but I think it's her. No wonder the word "beloved" comes from "love." Love is passionate and, unfortunately, often sad. Even if I myself still felt this, however, I can not read the lines devoted to passionate love without the heart not gripping the unknown longing. Apparently, love is something common for all of us, that we all feel and understand. So I realized that it is necessary to cherish this light feeling in the heart, take care of people you love, surround yourself with only your favorite things and spend your free time on your favorite pursuits. So you can fill your life with love.

Witty commentary, humorous analogies, constructive social criticism and a no-nonsense approach at telling it like it is – all these are the essential ingredients of good old fashioned storytelling. And when you add a pinch of adventure, sex and rock ‘n’ roll, what you get is Erazem B. Pintar.<br />A man for all seasons, whose multitude of talents, an enviable scope of experience and an unquenchable lust for life have warranted him to tackle the various aspects of the human condition with exceptional eloquence, a healthy dose of sarcasm, brutal honesty, and above all, style.<br />Through his writing, the author might come across as someone with the sexual appetite of a modern-day Warren Beatty, the charisma of a subalpine James Bond, the entrepreneurial skills of Richard Branson, an attitude of an old-school rocker and someone who shares Hemmingway’s passion for the sea, women, whisky and the written word. Yet however unrealistic or borderline pretentious this description might sound, it is surprisingly accurate…<br />And the guy can write! Concise, to the point, yet poetically colourful and intellectually satisfying. He preaches what he practices. Embodying a unique cocktail of worldly success, an empathetic heart and a critical mind, Erazem presents us with a window into an extraordinary life full of mundane and less mundane problems. From the important things that make us happy to the little things that piss us off and everything in between that simply makes us tick. In short, highly entertaining stuff, which I absolutely recommend you check out for yourselves!<br />Not only was translating his texts a pleasurably challenging experience, it was also a necessity, for to keep this literary bird from flying into international airspace would be nothing short of criminal.<br /><br />A warning to readers: the following pages contain high levels of sarcasm, ridiculous amounts of sexual tension and abnormal quantities of optimistic cynicism.<br />Possible side-effects may include: compulsive reading, excessive concurring, fits of laughter and an irresistible urge to buy a boat and/or travel to an exotic country like Thailand or Slovenia.<br /><br />Additional tips:<br />Before reading, open a bottle of wine, whiskey or any other beverage of your choice. Make sure you assume a comfortable seated, lying or fetal position, whichever works. Preferably do not read this book at work or while operating heavy machinery. Or your lover. While reading, keep an open mind, never take anything too literally, have a sip and enjoy the ride!<br /><br />Tom Smith

And Then I Am Gone: A Walk with Thoreau tells the story of a New York City man who becomes an Alabama man. Despite his radical migration to simpler living and a late-life marriage to a saint of sorts, his persistent pet anxieties and unanswerable questions follow him. Mathias Freese wants his retreat from the societal "it" to be a brave safari for the self rather than cowardly avoidance, so who better to guide him but Henry David Thoreau, the self-aware philosopher who retreated to Walden Pond "to live deliberately" and cease "the hurry and waste of life"? In this memoir, Freese wishes to share how and why he came to Harvest, Alabama (both literally and figuratively), to impart his existential impressions and concerns, and to leave his mark before he is gone.<br /><br />About the Author<br /><br />Mathias B. Freese is a writer, teacher, and psychotherapist who has authored six books. His I Truly Lament: Working Through the Holocaust won the Beverly Hills Book Awards and the Reader's Favorite Book Award, and it was a finalist in the Indie Excellence Book Awards, the Paris Book Festival, and the Amsterdam Book Festival. In 2016 Tesserae: A Memoir of Two Summers, his first memoir, received seven awards.

<p>“Innocent until proven guilty”—the common legal slogan every American knows—states how the law <i>should</i> work. But, as one innocent man discovered firsthand, it is definitely not how the law <i>actually</i> works.</p><br /><br /><p>In this shocking account of corruption and injustice, author Iam Clarize takes you deep inside the justice system and reveals how lawyers, politicians, and others in authority routinely violate your rights just to glorify themselves.</p><br /><br /><p>Clarize was a hardworking family man in his sixties when he was arrested for a crime he did not commit. Forced into taking a plea bargain he didn’t want, he was given a surprisingly harsh sentence. During this nearly unbearable process, Clarize realized to his horror that the American justice system treats you as guilty until you can prove yourself innocent—and that those without the resources for a great lawyer must rely on the whims of the court.</p><br /><br /><p>Clarize hopes you will never find yourself in such a position. His work is meant to provide the tools you need to understand the court’s pressure tactics and frequent denial of your rights as an American citizen.</p><br /><br /><p>Take a stand against the injustice of an undeniably corrupt system—and protect yourself.</p>
