I NOW HAVE EMAIL!

The prison that I’m at now has a new email system which makes it easier to communicate with people on the outside. It’s not as fast as regular email but it is faster than regular mail. Once I receive your email address and enter it into the system you will receive an email from corrlinks.com (you may have to check your spam because your system may have thought it was spam). This email will ask if you want to correspond with me. If yes you will get a password and a link to corrlinks.com. You have to go to corrlinks.com and enter your password to be able to send me an email or to read an email I send you. I hope to hear from you soon.

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.

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!

WHO YOU ARE

Tell me who your best friends are and if I am not your friend then I will tell you who you are. If you run with the wolves, you will learn how to howl. If you associate with eagles, you will learn how to soar to great heights. A mirror reflects a man’s face but what he is really like is shown by his growth and develop and his positive perspectives on life. The simple true fact of life is that you become like those who you closely associate for the good and the bad. Any time you tolerate mediocrity in your friends it increases your mediocrity. An important attribute in successful people is their impatience with negative thinking and negative acting people. As you grow your associates will change. Some of your friends will not want you to go on. They will want you to stay where they are. Friends that don’t help you climb will want you to crawl. Negative thinking and negative acting friends will stretch your vision or choke your dream. So never receive counsel from unproductive people and never discuss your problems with someone incapable of contributing to the solution because those who never succeed are the first to tell you how. You are certain to get the worst of the bargain when you exchange ideas with the wrong person. So if you stopped here, know that you have found a great friend, a good man and a friend who is willing to give without seeking anything in return. Respect.

INCARCERATION IS LONELY

It hurts to get close to people in here because it seems that every time you get close to someone they disappear from your life. I am so lonely for friendships. People come in and out of here all the time yet I’m the one left behind since I’m the lifer. It’s hard to know who to trust. I reach out to others with the hopes that someone would care about me and I usually get hurt. Or, when I do form a close bond with someone in here, they go home. I don’t hear from them again. I wish that I could be home right now. Each day without my loved ones, another piece of me is torn from my heart. I feel so very lost and alone. Each day is a struggle for me. Will the Parole Board let me go home? Will I be home while my dad is still alive? Will my 2 nieces and 1 nephew ever get to know me? Will I ever be out there with my mom, sister, brother and everyone that I love? I’m so scared that I will be forgotten by others. I might have made mistakes in my life but I’m still human. I pay for the consequences daily for all my mistakes but I’m still someone deserving of love, forgiveness, second chances and understanding. I’m fighting for my freedom here but I feel so very drained by the sadness and loneliness I feel.

THE LATEST UPDATE!

Hi guys, I realized that it has been about a year since my last blog entry and thought I would give everyone an update. I was moved to a different prison facility in Florence, Arizona, which is good since it is closer to Phoenix. It’s not Boston, Massachusetts but I’m patient. My current address was updated on my profile so no worries there. I went through knee reconstructive surgery in June and am doing really well so far; practically back to 100% mobility. Beyond that I have been staying close to friends and family, working out, reading and watching bad reality TV. It is what it is I guess. I was taking a break from school because I was anticipating a fast relocation to Massachusetts but now may rethink that and go ahead and enroll. Well, I hope everyone that reads this is doing well and if you decide to write and get to know one another than I look forward to hearing from you. Bye for now.

Inmate Blog Category:Prison Story
EXECUTION DAY

It was a surreal day today, yet it felt routinely normal. This morning was the execution; the first in Idaho since 1987. To prevent us inmates from rioting in protest of the death penalty there was a statewide lockdown today. We were forced to stay on our bunk beds, except for brief bathroom breaks. Some offices insisted we weren’t allowed to brush our teeth. Others said we could brush, but only if we were directly in front of the sink and only between 8:30 am and 8:45 pm. We couldn’t shower – that was a given. Our ice and microwaves were taken away. Meals were delivered to our beds and the prison played several comedies for us on the internal movie channel (nothing lifts the somber mood of execution day like “Crazy, Stupid Love”). The nurse offered us all free flu shots too. Somehow the prospect of a (non-lethal) injection today didn’t appeal to me. it’s 11 pm and I just brushed my teeth. But let’s keep that between us, okay? Its business as usual tomorrow: Ice, microwaves, a shower, college football and an afternoon of poker with the usual cast of characters.

GETTING READY FOR THE PAROLE BOARD

I made a really big decision by signing a waiver to wave my parole hearing for 3 years. I want the Board to see that when I finally go to my parole hearing it’s because I am ready for parole. I need to get my own paid psyche evaluation and work on my parole plans. I really need everyone’s help. First, if there is anyone that is willing to send me books on self esteem, co-dependency, anger management, substance abuse and anything else that can help me deal with my emotions, I would appreciate it so much. You can order paper back books through www.amazon.com. I also need help with raising money for a psyche evaluation. Any funds can be sent directly to me at www.jpay.com. Since I owe restitution I will only receive 45% of the funds sent to me. I could really use help with being able to buy stamps or food at canteen but the main reason I need the funds is for the psyche report. I’m interested in finding sponsors to help me with my relapse prevention and anyone willing to help me on my journey towards my transition into society. I just want to better myself so that I can make the right choices in life and so I won’t make the same mistakes again. I miss my family so much and need to be home with them. If you can offer social support, or just friendship, it would mean a lot to me. Thank you, Nicole Bradley.

HOW MY LIFE IS GOING

Hi guys, as usual it’s been a while since I have updated my profile. Hopefully all who are reading this are doing well. Things on my end are pretty good. I am staying incredibly busy with work, which is great. On top of being a clerk for the inmate counselor I am also teaching Ashtanga Yoga 3 times a week. Beyond that I’m in my basic workout routine and trying to keep up on bad reality TV and books. At the moment I am reading The Hunger Games and it’s intriguing. I have no update on the transfer to Boston but I know I’m getting closer. Keep your fingers cross for me, okay? Well I hope everyone’s year is going as well as can be. If you feel like writing then please feel free and I will respond. All the best, David

HELP ME BE MORE HUMAN!

You can do what prison isn't! Either anonymously or with verification each month my progress! Consider these options: SCHOLARSHIP(s) – my IQ is above 140 and I love learning but I owe several thousand in pre-prison Stafford loans so no federal aid. Don't let my mind be wasted! LITIGATION BILLS – from suits seeking prison improvements, some of which I won injunctions but no money, I must pay over $10,000. Until it's paid all incoming money is taken so I can’t even buy deodorant, stamps, etc. for myself. READING MATERIAL – debts stop me from subscribing to the artistic, literary, scientific and legal periodicals I cherish. BASIC SUPPLIES – debts deny me carbon paper, hygiene items, some of which others can order for me from www.JLMarcusCatalog.com – 1-800-236-2611 or www.WIinmatepackage.com – 1-866-402-0644. POSTAGE – sending me packets of stamps is the simplest way anyone can help; must come from post office. Overseas correspondence – except those in the Netherlands – must provide me with an IRC or envelopes with US airmail embossed so I can reply. INTERNET RESEARCH – I can't do so myself and often need scientific, and medical or other info for litigation or essays I'm working on. You'll have a friend for life if you commit to help me with any of the above; questions welcome!
