June 1 – 5 am – Stand by Survivor Series

ImageMy feet and torso are in the same Panoram!!!

It looks like the only chance for us getting out of here is to get up earlier than the other guy.  I wake up at 3:30 this morning and catch a shuttle to the airport.  There are already three guys ahead of me in line.  There being no security in this particular part of the airport, a buddy of theirs from the night before shows up with a 12 pack and a bottle of Crown Royal to wait with them.  His teeth are a mess of black and yellow and he’s sloppy drunk.  I have mixed feeling of how good times here are often mixed with way too much alcohol.  Elixa and I talked about this – Is it hopelessness?  Boredom?  A fault in genetics?  Historical trauma?  No doubt it’s complex.  Most people that are incarcerated because of poverty and addiction.  It’s a vicious cycle.
