I stepped outside after 8:15pm to enjoy the last half hour of yard. I walked by myself and admired the night sky, felt the breeze against my face. Thought about what I would say at a psych hearing for the parole board. Thought about the public service work I want to to in Southern California, if I am released. I'd like to work with local sheriff's departments and community centers to share my testimony with at-risk youth.
