First Day on the Job

What a whirlwind day. We had a staff meeting and I was reintroduced to the Thinker staff. Coffee and thinking and reading. Lovely lunch — vegetarian lasagne and two yummy salads. Met with the AG of SA in the early afternoon. He’s concerned about methampheatmine and was happy I was so knowlegable about it. Then back to reading and a late afternoon meeting with Corrections. Learned they have 2,000 prisoners at any given time. They want me to visit the women’s prison. They are also concerned about how to communicate with judges about risk assessment. It was so nice to share the same cultural language (law, corrections, enforcement, etc.) even though I’m half way around the world. I’m trying to stay awake until 9:30 because I regressed to a 4:30 am wide awake this morning after stretching to 6:00 am the day before. This too shall pass.
