A personal note to Zorian – “After effects of reading this book”
Lately, I’ve been exploring the aura that surrounds the people around me. I find myself trying to notice any glowing light coming from their or even my own belly buttons, of all things! It’s an intriguing thought to imagine how it would feel to fly high up in the sky. Also, I can’t help but wonder if anyone wearing a pendant might have a hidden camera in it. Now, I tend to observe people closely, trying to distinguish between those who may be part of secret societies and those who possess extraordinary abilities.
My rating is 4.5 / 5
