As prison life and my fellow orangemen continue to swirl onward around me, in now what I call a chaotic ford, prison being the turbulent river, my remaining days seem to be significantly longer and pass by much slower. I am counting each day down now, 33 days and a wake up!
I have disconnected with everybody in orange and brown as much as humanly possible. I don't leave my cell for any reason, other than to shower and to use the phone. I speak to my cellmate, Jerry, a few times daily, usually about my plans in the free-world or to help him develop some of his own (he has 8 months left). I buy $40 in commissary a week for smokes, coffee, food etc. I am totally focussed on going home and staying out. Occasionally, I converse with a passerby, but generally I am outside of prison in my mind. I write and call my friends, family and my woman and am exclusively focussed now outside these walls.
My blogging will continue in 34 more days. I promise. Until then, feel free to read through old posts and discuss them. I will be responding to comments upon my release, so keep them coming! I'm happy, in love, feeling good and impatiently waiting to start anew.
Thank you all and see you on the other side!
