Each morning, after I reaffirm my existence, I prepare and consume a light breakfast. This activity is followed by a brief stroll to the hammock in the yard. There I render myself recumbent for not more than ten minutes. The ten minutes having elapsed, I venture forth into the outer world, where I sidle as much as possible to maintain an unobserved existence. When exhaustion sets in after three or four hours, I lunch furtively in a secret place. I then proceed to a niche in the wall of the library, where I spend the rest of the day. When night falls, I am found back in my bed ready to sleep, awaken, and face a new day, all hinging, of course, on whether or not my existence is reaffirmed.
