ARTISTIC EXPLORATIONS

So, I’ve been trying to mix the anime art style with grayscale. Right now, I have an unfinished piece with a phoenix done in pencil and an anime chick behind it. I’m waiting on some pens so I can finish the line work on the check. It’s hard to find Manga-type liner pens around here. If you have any suggestions on alternative liner methods, please let me know! In the meantime, I’m open to suggestions on stuff to draw. If you want something done for you let me know. All I ask is that you post it to my profile when you get it.

This pain I feel is the pain of abandoning a delusion, the delusion is meaning. There is a higher purpose. At times I feel like there are no gods, no arbiters of right and wrong. I’m not meant to like reality. I’m only meant to be strong enough to face it. There is nothing beyond this. There is only the perfection we attain by becoming what we need to become to survive. As strong and merciless as a sword, I see what’s going on in the world and I see that people (we) live like there is no essential good in living, like life is nothing in itself. That it’s a place marker that proves who’s winning and even winning means nothing. We win because it’s an insult to lose. The ends don’t justify the means and the means don’t justify the ends. There is no one to justify to, there is no justification, there is no justice. It’s such a God-less state of mind to be in, but so legitimate a feeling when I think about how cold and evil the world is. It seems we don’t understand so we hate and we hate because we don’t understand. Instead of offering a helping hand, we offer insults and hatred. At times I feel like humanity has lost faith in humanity. But at the bottom there is still hope that we can live in a world where we focus on our similarities rather than our differences.

What is all the talk about? Is it pretty outside where you stay? I’m from the flat land of Oklahoma. My hometown is Lawton/Ft. Sill. Have you ever been next to a buffalo? Have you eaten a burger made from meat of a longhorn? We often start taking things for granted without being grateful for the things we have! We never realize how much people and some things matter to us and affect us until they are gone! It is our duty to learn from life and be satisfied, be grateful and look at the bigger picture. It is never too late! Life has provided us with all these wonderful opportunities, memories and experiences! Are you looking for a good friend to share with? I really want to open up more, ask questions and listen. We learn with everything that is done. Put out good and good will come back to you. What do you think? I’m happy to be alive, smiling to see what the next day will bring. I hope we talk more soon. Bye! God Bless.

THE REAL ME

“CHECK MY PULSE” ~~ Throughout these trials and tribulations I’ve had a lot of hard lows, but as I sit back and examine my difficulties I can’t help but think how soft my highs are going to be once I’m free. The road I’m taking is unorthodox, but the fires I’m passing through are making me a uniquely strong individual. I can’t wait to get out and be THIS person, the ‘me’ that should have taken precedence in my life from the beginning. The waiting is hard- especially doing it alone- but that light at the end of the tunnel keeps me motivated. Many people look at me and see a ‘criminal’, there’s so much more to me though. I’ve seen plenty of good in my life, but it’s the bad that’s made me a better person, if that’s comprehensible. How can you truly enjoy the people in your life or all the little things if you’ve never experienced what it’s like to be alone or have nothing at all? Of course, many people understand ‘good things’ without experience the negatives of life, but the feeling of having lost and given up hope of ever feeling that ‘goodness’ again- and then finding it…It’s just not the same as always having had these things. Am I making sense? I’ve lost and missed out on a lot of chances due to choices I made as a kid- love, friends, family, overall experience of being out in society and living…Time won’t allow me to get those things back and will make it difficult when I get out in ways, but I look forward to THOSE challenges- that’s what life’s about. In here the challenge is learning the patience to ‘stay alive’ because the reality is we’re slowly dying in here and we’re already forgotten by many in the world. A lot of people just accept that state of being- not me. I plan on being happy; making others happy, and enjoying the rest of the years I have left living without regrets. ~~ I’m still here World! Alive and Kicking…

Inmate Blog Category:Relationships


A meaningful relationship to me means many things. It can mean platonic, or it can mean romantic. It can be intellectual, or down to earth and heartfelt. I would like to view prison as a stepping stone to a greater future, and I would really enjoy some company! I am single, witty, confident, and not intellectual challenged. I have found myself in a place that discourages ambition; a place where intelligence is a curse rather than a gift. I am seeking somebody that can captivate my mind (and maybe my heart?). Our relationship does not have to be romantic but I feel that we should have a few things in common. A few years ago I was a lump of coal, but after facing the various pressures of the life that I led, I have become a diamond; a diamond in the rough, true, but a diamond just the same. I know that with the proper influence and motivation I can continue to grow. One day I may even shine! I understand that forming a lasting bond from prison can be a challenge, but with the right chemistry, anything can happen! My past holds some dark spaces that I am not proud of I also believe that my future holds many bright and glittery adventures. Would you like to join me? If so, I look forward to your letter and I hope that we can make a connection. Give me a chance and I promise you won’t be disappointed.

RELEASE DATE

I have a release date!! Pending appeal. I am excited about meeting someone to be a friend. So to make that happen, I offer my family secret recipe to Friendship and more. 1. A pinch of chance. 2. A cup of laughter, finely chopped. 3. A spoon of curiosity. 4. A dash of yes. Preheat Honesty in the over at 350, then roll ingredients into a loaf, and bake. Let cool, then serve. ~~ If this has made you smile, there’s more. And if there exists a mutual craving or a curiosity to know more about one another, then send me your recipe for Friendship.

I want to add a photo of my mom and me at visiting. I guess I am a ‘momma’s boy’ because I love her the most. The large drawing, with the tree is my family crest. It is the world tree, rooted in GIA, with Eros’ heart and wings as its branches. The infinity triangle of love and compassion is set inside GIA because it is at the root of my personal beliefs and morals. These might be famous on the net; I have been told that the people who stole my identity in 2013 still repost my original pictures of my tattoos as their own. My favorite colors are blue, green, grey, pink, yellow, and then purple. My favorite numbers are 8, 12, 16, 21 then 49. I absolutely love dance, trance, Dubstep, Electronica, Disco, and pretty much any positive or up-lifting music; but not preachy or too religious. I like to be in shape and hate having body hair. I have to shave, since I can’t wax in here, at least once a week or I get grossed out. Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn are my favorite books, followed by ‘Iron Druid Chronicles’, and anything by ‘AVI’ or ‘Rich Riodan! I am working on the rough draft of a fiction story about Zombies, love, family, as well as starting Spanish lessons, again. I am at my word limit again! Thanks for considering me for a pen-pal. I will send another update soon.

LIVING DEATH

I see this from time to time. Prison has been described as having a permanent black cloud eternally present in the atmosphere. In this frame of mind the body decays. Someone may feel physically sluggish, mentally foggy, unenthusiastic, bored, with a tendency to procrastinate. They would like to sleep for as long as they exist. Like the hinges on a door they toss and turn but are going nowhere. In this state, one is in the state of living death. One thing is certain in life, it’s ever changing nature. The animals in the wild understand this. After a lavish summer, come the trying times of Winter then Spring follows. Try not letting everyone in on your misery or wearing your heart on your sleeve. Even the most sympathetic people would rather be in the company of a winner. Those who contribute to your crises, do not give them the satisfaction of knowing they got the power to hurt you. Find a way to utilize the weakness and turn it into strength. The absence of negative experiences in our life does not alone contribute to the quality of our life. As a noble people, we need challenges and by confronting them and overcoming them we develop fully. If you contemplate the negativity enough you will discover that they are in fact the strongest assets in your personal, professional and spiritual development. I don’t pray for, I choose to live with the unshakable inner strength of my ancestors to accept these harsh lessons and learn from them and not be destroyed by them. There is no one out there you have to conquer, when you have successfully conquered your-self, the world will be at your feet.

DRAMACIDAL

Mental discipline is as vital as physical toughness. Uncontrollable emotions are to a natives character as a drop of poison is to a well of spring water. Learn to see emotional responses to situations as a sort of disease. Showing frustration shows you’ve lost the ability to shape events. Everyone thinks they govern their behavior with reason and thought. What dictates their actions is the emotions they feel in the moment. How we confront situations determines our fate. Control is not in what one does, but in what one does not do. The foolish actions you refrain from before you dig your own grave. Overcome the tendency to react, elevating yourself above the battlefield. The mountain lion toys with the squirrel that crosses his path. Any other reaction would destroy his fearsome reputation. Contempt is the prerogative of the chief. Where his eyes turn, what he chooses to see has reality. What he ignores is as good as dead. After all it’s the cold blooded animals whose bite is poisonous. Beware people who operate in a whirlwind of emotions. These manifest from an inward instability that radiates outward drawing disaster upon oneself. This weakness often heralds a downfall. When you allow such people to operate, you will find your mind and time occupied by their problems.

WE ARE ALL RELATED (TRIBAL TRIPPIN')

Not long ago enmity emerged between the Rez dogs and the wolves. So the dogs voted a Doberman to be their General. But the Doberman was in no hurry to engage in warfare. He said “Understand why I have not initiated warfare against the wolves. This threat is all of the same breed, all of the same color. Solidarity exists. Our numbers have different interests. Each one is proud of his own breed. Even our coats are not uniform. Some are spotted, black, white or ash grey. How can I lead into battle those not in harmony and fight amongst each other?” The knot is made of 1000’s of smaller knots, all twisted and intertwined. As time goes by the knots get more entangled. Instead of trying to untie it, cut it in half. Once divided it will come undone on its own. In any structure the joints are the weakest link. Within any organization people naturally form smaller groups. These subgroups form power bases that will threaten the organization as a whole. These factions will naturally work to secure their own interests before those of the greater group. The herd inevitably shuns the black sheep. They are uncertain whether or not it belongs among them. So it lags behind or wanders away where it’s cornered by wolves and devoured. So keep your differences in your thoughts, not in your fleece.
