December 12, 2006. Day 50 in the half way.
"I'm not allowed to look for work until they give me the go ahead. For now I spend my days listening to the radio, reading a novel that my friend dropped off for me, watching the squirrels and listening to the ravens. I design stuff in my head and take two naps a day. I read, I write, I listen to This American Life. I think up kaleidoscope ideas. My friend just found this book that was in storage on kaleidoscope design. I can't wait to look at it."
