I made a decision today.  I am going to write a book.  Not real.  Not about prison.  Not about this heartache.  Simply because being touched by all this heartbreak, learning what it does to people inside and out – it is true, just like that woman told me – it sucks the life right out of you.   It reminds me of that movie – The Secret Life of Bees.  The girl who feels others’ pain and she eventually kills herself because it is too overwhelming.  I am choosing not to kill myself.  Instead – I will create a different world.

So – as my escape from this sadness – I am writing my first novel!  I’m excited….
