I lived by the squares in my calendar while I was incarcerated! In jail your calendar is almost like those charts they used to put up in school to show which child did well and got a sticker on their book report and then those who did not. It made me feel good to see every time my mother came to visit my 19 year old self but then at the same time I would see other inmates calendars posted to their wall with only one day highlighted.... the haves and the have-nots. Every thing in life is only worth as much as the value you assign to it. You can choose to focus on the empty squares or you can choose to look at all the hours that are filled in on those special days where the clock seems to play tricks on us... Lightening fast when we're doing something pleasing to pass the time and then molasses like slow when you are sitting there waiting for something to happen. It's great to see such a full weekend schedule for a positive thing like a visit with a novelist. That is exciting for sure. I hope you enjoyed your time and got the chance to learn something new!
