A Relaxing Day
Word travels fast in the prison. When people heard that I was granted parole, they all congratulated me. I try to keep a low profile because I don't want to flaunt my good fortune. There are many life prisoners who are waiting for their turn and have gotten raw deals. I want to be sensitive to their feelings.
I just stayed in my bed area and relaxed. I listened to music and read The Elephant Vanishes by Murakami. It felt good to relax with no worries.
I look forward to the weekend because some friends may be dropping by for a visit.
