Essay: Voluntary Solitary
After spending seven years in prison, once married with children and eight years of service in the U.S. Army, Bill Johnson, 58, has decided it to be less stressful to live in homelessness. He could go back to Florida with his mother but says uprooting at this point would be starting over again. He spends his time going to churches everyday and involved in calligraphy. He hopes to make a business out of his penmanship. This is his chosen solitary life.
