Free Download FEB 13, 14 and 15!!!!

Based on a true story.
Markella’s burning desire is to share what she knows with the world. But she can’t.
A situation develops and push comes to shove. She decides to write it all out, bringing to life a chatty journal filled with information about her husband, Nick, alias Mallias, a renowned card cheat, a mobster.
They make quite the couple. Some love them, some hate them, while so many love to hate them.
Markella takes time to get her thoughts together, expressing half of what she is thinking always. She writes in her slow burn style, sometimes staccato and sometimes rambling, sometimes brash and often politically incorrect, filling the pages of her journal with their story, one drenched with crime, mystery, eccentricity, double-crossers, dripping with the unique flavors of Greece, New York, and Osaka and soaked through and through with gossip, romance and a touch of the metaphysical.

our own lawless refuge…

Memories are like rules. Some of them are so stifling, so debilitating. These need to be slain. In Mallias, the Greek Gangster, Markella deals with that. She wrote in her journal:

“… Rules don’t exist only on paper. Actually, they don’t ‘exist’ on paper. They are only ‘printed’ on paper.

They ‘exist’ in our minds. Rules are ‘written’ in our minds. That is where they truly ‘exist’. The rules are printed out in our minds, words black, stark, firm, on the white pure canvas.

Printed papers. Printed minds. We get trapped by their black and white.

Rules, rules, rules. Some of them don’t work.

It really doesn’t matter if the rules which don’t work for you are on paper. If they don’t work you can rip them up.

It matters, though, if the rules that don’t work well are in your mind, it matters if your mind knows them, hears them. The rules that are written in the mind are the ones that definitely need to work, otherwise, they will plague you. Otherwise, they need to go.

If the rules that have been set in your mind don’t work, they need to be washed away.

The rules that have settled in the mind are the hardest ones to change. You can’t just rip them like paper.

If you unsuccessfully try to change them, ignore them, or work around them, they fight back. They spray you with guilt. Or they torment you with doubt. Or they make you feel vulnerable.

That is why these rules that don’t work are like nasty weeds. They need to be eradicated….”
