Six years can feel quite a long time actually #daybreak

Adelaide Gaol  #dailyshoot“It doesn’t feel like a very long” said James O’Brien on Daybreak of the six years served in jail by the mother of Baby P.

It doesn’t feel very long when you just say it: “Six years”.

However, try this experiment, which I have, to an extent tried myself when a jail term I was interested in was current. Every morning for the next six years say to yourself “They are still in jail”.

After doing that exercise, tell me whether you think six years feels like a long time or not.
