Days since my release from 26 years in prison: 33
Time I woke: 5:00 am
Journal of activities:
I slept this morning until 5:00 am, hoping the extra rest would help to heal my swollen ankle. I’m missing running very much. The ankle is feeling better, but I do not think that I’ll be able to resume my exercise until Monday at the earliest. In the morning I wrote a summary of my class from last Thursday. Then I worked with Carole to complete the PowerPoint presentation. I have a vision of recording each class, then showing it to criminal justice professors from across the state with hopes that they will adopt the course for students at their universities. After completing the academic projects, I resumed work on the Michael G. Santos Foundation website, and I wrote lesson plans for a work readiness program that I’m developing for Straight-A Guide Staffing Solutions. So I have a lot going on. In the evening, my young friend Zach Axelrod joined Carole and me for dinner. Zach is quite an impressive young man. He founded Skyline Innovations a few years ago and is building the solar water-heating company into a fabulous company. It’s only four years old, but the company has hundreds of customers and it will exceed $11 million in revenues this year. I’ve known Zach since he was 12.

I spent the day writing along in my office. My friend Zachary Axelrod joined Carole and me for dinner at a local Petaluma restaurant.
