My life outside books:
Work:
No work! I go back tomorrow....

Personal:
Not much has happened in the past week. I've read, gone for walks, hung out with my daughter, and sat in the garden to relax.

Oh, wait. We've started listening to a new podcast: Ear Hustle. It is so good and interesting. The hosts are Earlonne, a male prisoner at San Quinten and Nigel, a female artist who volunteers at the prison. Each episode they talk about an aspect of life at San Quinten (cellmates, food, race, family visits, etc).
