Inner Light

I find it unhelpful to look through windows at the sea and sky, when so much is still to be done indoors. A web cam on the roof shows the broad panorama of the outside world going by, in contrast to this enclosed place where I have to live. I am inside, doing time and unrepentantly enjoying the changing spaces and sounds of this illuminating penitentiary.

There so much to see and consider as I carefully explore the fort . Much of the bottom floor is intentionally left as undiscovred country, to be opened up over the coming weeks. I sometimes wonder if I will have sufficient time, as the days seem to go so quickly. I retire with the setting sun and can't wait for the dawn.
