A QUESTION OF LOVE

It seems that in the wake of this day and time the very essence of love…has been diluted, watered down, in a critical way, with no respect and admiration towards the meaning of love and what it represents in its most delicate and strongest expressions. Whereas couples are unfaithful to each other, marriages are broken and cheating is something that occurs too often. The question is: Does faithfulness, amongst this generation, still live amongst a man and his woman or a woman and her man? In the wake of that known as love…

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.

A QUESTION OF KARMA

When I was a free man I heard stories of inmates getting adopted. Really? Grown men? I thought it was crazy at the time but now know not to judge it if you haven’t lived it. I consider myself someone who really doesn’t have any family and, after seeing people taking theirs for granted 24/7, I started to question karma. For example, a guy here was totally downgrading women. “They shouldn’t hold positions of power. They deserve lower wages, etc.” An hour later he gets called for a visit (his visitor was probably here an hour before they ever called his name). Who’s here to see him - his girlfriend who sends him mail and money religiously. What does he do? He slowly finishes his card game, takes a half hour shower, primps in the mirror for another ten and then goes. What does he do when he gets back - makes vulgar comments about other women in the visiting room. Once upon a time I would have shown him the error of his ways in a way that would make him never want to break the law again. Not now though; I’ve learned that people like that eventually fall on their own knives. I’m learning patience so I just hope questions karma isn’t questioning God. Is it? I know change doesn’t come overnight, that’s why I’m always open and anxious to learn. I welcome any intelligent thoughts or ideas on this or any other subject. Let me know.

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.

THE LOST ART OF COMMUNICATION

The art of conversation is an art that has been lost, to a degree…in this age and time…do you agree or disagree? Also, proper communication brings forth a greater understanding between two people, a stronger bond…trust…and creates a connection whereby the one’s communicating…through the art of conversation…will know each other better in many aspects…in a deeper, intimate and profound, beautiful way…

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.

WE GET NERVOUS WRITING YOU TOO!

1st Texas’ prison system is not conducive to one’s own notion of scheduling, so no more “saying” when I’ll post blogs. They’ll be there. That said, I’ve absolutely no idea what to say! That’s exactly where we’ll begin – where each and every one of our pen pal relationships begin. The uncertainty of how to proceed with befriending someone who (1) you’ve never known of or laid eyes on; (2) is Creator knows what kind of person; and (3) is a convict! The last being catalyst for all manner of stereotypes, right and alas, being the wonderfully open-minded people you are, you give us a try – big ups to you! Well, try this cap on for size: Ever consider that we too wrestle with the notion of giving you a try? That, for some of us at least, posting ourselves is a mega-exposition of the nakedness of our need for companionship, or communication with other than our dominoes partners and work out crews? Or that we’re grasping for reasons to believe in good people, dependable, women, humanity as a whole; reasons that the specters of our bad experiences are struggling to asphyxiate? Feelings, insecurities, exist on both sides of the post person’s route. Making a good old fashioned Bush like Texas hijacking of the prison presidency, I’ll attempt to represent my constituency by offering a few tips to consider when considering giving us a whirl: (1) Have no fear of saying or asking anything. How else will you know what you want to know, express what you want to express?! At worst you’ll be asked not to go there. At best you’ll grow exponentially through free flowing communication, learning from and teaching each other. (2) Don’t be that person who contacts us, receives a reply you aren’t exactly feeling so leaves us, giving the officer doing mail call puppy eyes as they pass our cell without a glance. Set a range, say 5-6 letters, to see how it evolves before calling the friendship undevelopable; and (3) Be considerate. If for some reason you decide not to continue writing, send a card or note saying so. Any real man or woman will respect that and there’ll be no discouragement towards a continued search. Let the way we treat one another be the most beautiful thing about us. Until again comes…peace & love. Upcoming topic: Since when did love become a curse word?!

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.
