Lauryn Hill reported to a minimum security federal prison earlier this month to serve a three month sentence for tax evasion, and just a few weeks in, she’s updating fans and those who’ve written her that she’s doing well via a short letter on Tumblr.
In the note, she thanks the well-wishers and says she is “making the best of” her circumstances. Hill is serving her time at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut, where inmates live in “barracks type” housing.
“I have known since very young to look for the purpose and lesson in everything, including the trials. Although it has taken some adjustment, I cannot deny the favor I have encountered while in here, and general warm reception from a community of people who despite their circumstances, have found unique ways to make the best of them. Thank you for the letters of concern and well wishes that I receive in the mail every day. Although I may not be able to write everyone back, please know that they have been received, read, acknowledged, and appreciated. With Love back, MLH”
