Not taking this thing lightly:)"

Overall, we are really enjoying screening the film around the country and hope to continue to do so as we pursue distribution on TV, NetFlix, etc.

"Man...sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then he dies having never really lived." - Dalai Lama
