Form movie 'Shawshank Redemption':

I find I am so excited.

I can barely sit still

or hold a thought in my head.

I think it the excitement only a free man can feel,

a free man at the start

of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain.

I hope I can make it across the border.

I hope to see my friend, and shake his hand.

I hope the Pacific is

as blue as it has been in my dreams.

I hope.
