Days since my release from 26 years in prison: 38
Time I woke: 5:00
Journal of activities:
Today I did some work at my home on the computer in the early morning. I still am not able to run because my ankle sprain continues to bother me. I don’t want to aggravate the injury. I expect that I’ll be able to resume my regular running by next week. Carole and I drove to SFSU in mid morning and we set up our computers in the library. We enjoy working side by side. My class was going to be quite easy today because I scheduled Ronnie Massero to visit the class as a guest speaker. He served multiple decades in prison and I knew that he would provide the students with real insight into the prison system. Ronnie showed up around 5:00 pm and he delivered a magnificent narration. It was as if he stepped directly our of the pages from one of my early books on prison life. I was glad to have his participation and I know the students appreciated his contribution.
