I found this one interesting, Camille. I always used to chat with the people I arrested and many of the ex-cons spoke about how much it meant to them when people such as you and your fellow volunteers used to come to teach them. "They're really committed to helping the inmates," one guy said to me. I'm sure you made a difference in their lives, so know you have my utmost respect for your efforts.

This is great. Actually, I think it could be the start of yet another series. Title of book #1, Nothing But a Nuisance. Look how well Orange is the New Black did. Even had a nun/ inmate who was serving time for protesting.

Thanks, Michael. At the time the work reflected Newton's observation: "I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me." But, as you say, one "difference" at a time.

I did avoid arrest, Ellen. Came close when I aligned myself with the Berrigan crew.

A new series -- just what I need!

Mar Preston

Interesting. I admire your long service.
