The Spool is Unwinding


"The law can be stood on its head. When your ten years are up they can say, 'Here's another ten for you.' Or exile you.Yet there were times when you thought about it and you almost choked with excitement. Yes, your term really is coming to an end; the spool is unwinding..."-from One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich by Aleksander Sozlhenitsyn.
