Sometimes I think it's hard to know what's me and what's the situation of being here. Presumably it's a mix of both.
Generally I'm in a rather good mood. All the cards and letters from supporting people keep my spirits up. Also that I'm thinking of why we are here, the purpose.
What's really good to know is to hear that people "outside" are doing things to publicize the action, that makes me feel good - that the "work" is going on.
I really miss nature, that's the worst. That I can't walk in the forest and smell the rain, the leaves. Maybe it's a good experience to be in prison for a while, and have time to see what life is about.
I have a picture of Mordechai Vanunu on my wall. When I'm down I can look at him, and I know that his struggle must be so many times bigger than mine.
I have my books, I have my papers and my pens - because of that I can really do something with the time in here. That's why I feel rather okay.
What I would like to say to people if they wonder how they can support me is - continue with the peace work, with the work for the poor.
That's the best support you can give me!
