A new way to measure time
At the New York Times, Chris Huntington writes an essay about how working with prisoners taught him to reevaluate how he measured time, as well as his successes and failures.
“When the battery in my watch died, I still wore it. There was something about the watch that said: It doesn’t matter what time it is. Think in months. Years. Someone loves you. Where are you going? There are some things you will never do. It doesn’t matter. There is no rush. Be the best prisoner you can be.”
