The passage of time is intimately woven into the "prison experience". In a fundamental sense, the passage of time is part of the essence of imprisonment.
This was highlighted for me when I returned from home leave. Although only a few days have passed, it feels like weeks. Time has slowed down. And in this prison time appeared to pass particularly quickly.
But time, and its passing, is a matter of personal perception and external reality can become almost irrelevant. All I know now is that I want to go home - now!
