STAYING POSITIVE

Hello everyone! Just thought I would check in and give everyone an update. Things are going surprisingly well. I am still awaiting my transfer to Boston, Massachusetts and anxious about that but I remain patient. Arizona is okay but I just have no desire to reside here upon my release since my best friend and parents are in Boston now. The East Coast will be a good change and I look so forward to it. At the moment I am not corresponding with anyone but hope that changes sometime soon. Still, I am working in the Warden’s office, working out a lot and doing all that I can to stay busy and positive. The World Series is going on now. In my heart I am a Red Sox fan but at the moment I say “Go Giants”! Yeah, I love sports. Well, I hope that whoever reads this is doing really well. The Holidays are already upon us which, for me, means it’s another year down. Take care, everyone! Your friend, David.

HUMAN RELATIONSHIPS ARE PARAMOUNT

I recently read a book entitled West of Kabul, East of New York, an Afghan American story by Tamin Ansary. I enjoyed the book. I was struck by something said on pages 206 and 207, which I feel is profoundly true, but in a busy world, easy to overlook. “That human relationships are the only things that are utterly irreplaceable. A human relationship, when it’s gone, it’s finished. And anything you might feel sorry for, there is not correcting it. And anything you planned to do together, that’s finished too. There is no replacing a relationship.” And, “My irreplaceable loved ones gave my life whatever value it had”. I agree with these passages. I feel life is so very short. Family and friendship are paramount. Love, friendship and acts of kindness are the most significant things that can be effected. ~Brian Duckett 10-31-10

WE'RE ALL HUMANS

Friends, what are y’all afraid of? Is it because of the word prison? Look, we’re all humans in this world…and we share this world together! Most of us in prison do not deserve to be here (such as me) but we’re here and trying to create friends amongst these razor wire fences. Chances are very slim. The outside world looks down on us without reasons; they figure just because an officer pulls you over you’re automatically guilty and vice versa for the courts. I would say at least get o know us as human beings before casting judgment upon us (inmates). I’m not only speaking for myself but for the others also. Some of us stress for mail. Not only that, longing for a companion to keep those 4 words with us R. E. A. L and to open themselves to a comfortable position and share their feelings, thoughts, just be sincere altogether. Thank you for taking time out of your everyday schedule just to read how boring I really am (LOL) but at least now you know. I’m not obligated to hold you within my presence any longer! I know that this isn’t much but think about how we feel (as a number, an inmate, etc.). Is there anyone in the world today who is willing to correspond with an inmate? And if you decide to correspond with one of us (human beings) please make sure you tell them who inspired you to write them. Keep your head up.

BECOMING INSTITUTIONALIZED

Welcome to my blog. If you’re reading this it means you are interested in contacting me and that’s a reason to smile. I am a man who is becoming institutionalized after 18 years in prison; never lived my youth, haven’t experienced things in life many take for granted such as love, a profession, having a surprise party, etc. I blame myself, the young man who brought me here. Yet I don’t complain for it was the path needed for my re-generation; like a pearl, which once out of its environment, needs to go through a process of cleansing before it can shine. Yet part of me hopes for having the experience of life, to the point where even a prison visit means the world to me because I’m not used to that; or feel joy to see my name at mail call for I’m totally disconnected from the free world. I would like to touch on my legal case but space is limited. However justice was never served and I will likely die here while the person who kills is free. The judicial department knows but politics aren’t about justice, they just need a body to fill a cell spot. That’s the American justice. I know the little world which surrounds me isn’t the true world and I find myself in a battle not to lose my humanity. I want to embrace friendship wholeheartedly and I consider friendship a blessing. Are you my blessing??? Hector

WARM BODY IN MY BED

I’ve been sleeping alone for the past three years but awoke to quite a surprise the other night. There’s this old, grouchy guy who wears a diaper. He lives in the cell next to mine. Unbeknownst to me, the diaper guy has a sleepwalking affliction. At 3 a. m. I was sound asleep and the diaper guy walked into my cell, thinking it was his. An eyewitness told me the next day that he stared at my bed while sleepwalking, then dropped his pants and sat directly on my stomach. I immediately woke up, jumped up and said, “What the _?!”, to which diaper boy said, “Oh, sorry, sorry, I thought I was in my bed. I’ll go home”. Since then he’s been too embarrassed to look at me and I’ve had a bit of trouble sleeping, as in the back of my mind I fear being sat on again by a diaper wearing man. Perhaps sleeping alone isn’t so bad after all.

ATTENTION: YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!

I’m currently working on a couple of projects and will be working on more in the near future (writing a book, etc) and I would appreciate it to the utmost degree if you’d take a little time to answer any of the following questions for me: 1) What was your most embarrassing moment as a child and/or adult? 2) What was your favorite moment as a child and/or adult? 3) What do you dislike the most about advertisements (commercials, etc)? 4) What kinds of changes would you like to see in the advertisement industry? 5) What was the funniest thing that has happened to you and/or another person you have been around? 6) What are your beliefs when it comes to love (love at first sight, soul mates, etc.)? 7) What do you dislike and/or like the most about social networks? And if it were up to you, what would you add or take away from social networks? (Note: When responding to my questions a return address must be present on the incoming mail; therefore you can use an anonymous name and a pos box mailing address.) From time to time I’m going to ask more questions in future blog postings. And to make it fair, if you have any questions for me…please do not hesitate to ask and I’ll answer as many as I can on a follow up blog posting. Until next time…

SINCE YOU’RE BROWSING…

Chances are you’re looking to befriend or possibly enter into a serious relationship with a man, are you not? If you’re a single, independent woman, focused on laying the foundation for your “better tomorrows” through already having a career or attending schooling for such then contemplating building a serious relationship with me (you may very soon realize) can suit your lifestyle invaluably. Not that either of us should lower our standards for the kind of partner that we’re seeking and feel we’re worthy of in life, yet won’t it be very comforting to discover that you’ve just found the man that has grown to fully and truly appreciate the woman that’ll take the chance to invest their time, heart and mind into what’s being build here? So no, you don’t have to be around my age, have a curvaceous figure or possess half the answers when it comes to life and love in order to receive my undivided attention, unwavering devotion, unedited realness, unsurpassed mental and emotional strength and get unrestricted access to my mind, body and soul once we take it there. And you need not “take my word for it” as I quote “I’m very capable of being an irreplaceable figure to your support-system throughout life” because you’re ever welcome to experience me to see. Lastly: This was written 4-1-11 and I have yet to hear from a woman. May you please be my first?

YOU’VE GOT NAIL

“Snip, snip, snip, click” then a long pause…I knew that he was thinking, “Oh, no, where did that last toenail clipping go”. A few seconds of contemplation then round two of the snipping commenced. I casually brushed my hand across the letter I was in the process of writing (to one of my pen pals) when I found the evidence…a small piece of toenail from my oblivious bunk mate. I flicked it underneath my bed and continued my letter writing adventure, one sentence at a time, cringing with wretched anticipation with each snip. Are some landing on my pillow? In my coffee cup? Should I speak up? And if so, how would one properly broach the topic of flying toenails? In the end I took a deep breath and swallowed my tongue. I reminded myself, as I frequently do, that I had much bigger problems to worry about (like my pregnant ex-wife, the Lakers being swept in the playoffs by Dallas or, most important, my pending appeal). In the grand scheme of things a toenail is just a toenail.

SOME OF MY FAVORITE PASSAGES

Ecclesiastes 9:10, 9:11 Whatever your hands find to do, do it with your might; for there is no work, or device, or knowledge, or wisdom in the grave where you are going. I returned and saw under the sun that – the race is not to the swift, not the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all.

DREAMS AND PICTURE FRAMES

It’s almost midnight on Tuesday, June 28th. I’ve been waking up much earlier than usual all month to follow Casey Anthony’s trial on TV. I’m extra sleepy tonight so don’t expect a literary masterpiece. My mind is racing and I wanted to share my thoughts with you. First I had a nice dream last night but because of that dream all I’ve been able to think about, all day long, are women from my past. Short term flings, one night stands, long term relationships…I believe I’m like many women in that every time I’m with someone, be it for one night or ten years, I feel a strong emotional bond toward them and have a hard time forgetting them. Right now I have two of my former flings in picture frames on my shelf. Both were very casual relationships and both took place while I was married. But I’m staring at their pictures, missing them terribly, imagining what life could have been like with each of them. I want to see them again, kiss them, lie down next to them (or is it lie down?), but sadly my love life is confined to my dreams. Speaking of dreams, I watched the finale of The Voice tonight. Wow…this Frampton girl is unbelievably talented and so beautiful. I really hope she wins. Sadly I’ve depleted my 250 word allowance but I have many more exciting stories to share; really good stories. Wanna hear them? Guess you’ll have to write me!
