ZOMBIE ATTACK ~ Why does the world have an infatuation with zombies? From the classic, “Night of the Living Dead” movie, to the extremely popular, “The Walking Dead” series and “iZombie” on television, the world, it would seem, is preparing for a real life ‘Zombie Apocalypse’. Or, are we already too late? In 250 words, more or less (okay more), I will attempt to present my argument that the attack of the zombies is already, well underway. ‘He who has ears to hear, let them hear’. A fitting description of a zombie is in their depiction of being the walking dead. Once made into a zombie, the human’s body is functionally deceased. Their heart ceases to beat. The equilibrium is no longer in tune and all growth stops. Whatever age, or state, you were in once turned into a zombie, you will remain in perpetually. These walking dead tend to move in packs or groups, as if shunning isolation, even in death. Either way, a zombie’s sole motivation is to feed. It’s only food: human brains. The zombie’s only source of nourishment is the fresh living brains of humans that are not zombies. Cannibalism is nonexistent in a zombie society because zombies can’t eat other zombies, and without fresh brains to devour, zombies can’t survive. Once the brain of the living, or undead, is eaten by a zombie that person’s body now becomes a member of the zombie family, with all its attached distinctions and characteristics. Eventually, this process is repeated until the entire population is depleted of fresh brains. We would be left with a world full of brainless creatures that are stuck in a state of macabre suspended animation, leading only to decay and death. The only way to neutralized a zombie is by separating the brain (or what’s left of it) from the body by either decapitation or breaking the neck, disconnecting the brainstem. Now I ask you to consider the similarities popular culture today has to a zombie apocalypse. Throughout every facet of society we have mass ignorance, rooted in outdated traditionalism (zombies’ death of growth). We have a sanctioned persecution of individualism (living being hunted and devoured), as well as mainstream society pressuring for conformism (zombies’ don’t die, they multiply). The only way to combat this apocalypse of ignorance is with true knowledge, starting with the knowledge of self. In this way, we can eventually disconnect the ignorant ways of thinking form the body of society and save us from its desire result: Procreation unto annihilation. Just some food for thought, pun intended. Being aware is being alive family. Just a little commentary, from the obituary.

WHAT'S GOOD

Prison Life ~~~ What’s good about prison life? Some positive. I work in a plant nursery and garden. I love music, so I have countless songs downloaded. I have a flat screen in my house, movies, stereo, video chat, email, video games, phone internet tables. Any kind of food you want -we can order KFP, Pizza Hunt and others. Our doors are unlocked most of the time. I have family and friend and pen-pals that I correspond with. ~~What’s good about Prison Life? ~~~ I’ve made mistakes that impacted my family and friends. They have to answer the questions, where’s your father? What happened to Paul? I did this. I have a nightmare about one of my daughters; she’s crying out for me during a big thunderstorm, help me Daddy. I go to her room and there is a giant wall. No matter what I do or how hard I try the wall won’t come down. I found a hammer and now I tear down the wall one brick at a time. After many years I was working late one night and I fell asleep on the floor. When I woke, I count hear crying. The thunder was distant. I heard a grown woman on the other side of the wall say, “It’s OK Dad, the storm and the wall are almost gone.” ~~~What’s good about prison Life?~~~ Nothing.~~~ I’ll be on Facebook soon. Look me up as I start the last leg of this journey. I intend to spend more time learning and paying extra attention to my family, friends and my special lady. I’ve had so many pen pals on this site. Thank you all. Thoughts don’t look back. What I do next is what matters as a man. Reach out to someone in need. Rest Easy, Paul

WHAT IS LOVE

This column is dedicated to those people who still believe in true love. Sometimes I lay awake at night and my mind begins to wander, thinking in an out of time, passing through dreams of the past yet connecting with the thoughts of the future and living in the now. I can only exist in the present, I have decimated the values of my life I hold so dear if I could only connect with the past and scrub free which has unmasked. I would truly be humble in the thought that I could be a better me to create a truer self that would not inflict pain, that would take love for what it truly is, and not it into an ornament of my affection, morphine into a barely recognizable shadow of self. The nature of love is pure, it has no conditions of what it feels for you. The true nature of love does not judge or put down, they can only enhance, enrich, and enable you to be better in life. But you can hurt love and cause it to become disappointed and it can lose its joy around you, but the nature of love is always love and it will bounce back with or without you. I have hurt love, manipulated love, but love has stood strong and stayed true to its nature. It always has the last laugh, yet it laughs with you. I have been made anew by love and I am better for it. Love has granted me access to a wonderful way of seeing things. I don’t know what the future holds, but I am positive the nature of love will play a role.

Currently, The Center on Wrongful Convictions at Northwestern School of Law, has taken interest to seek justice on my behalf through a civil rights lawsuit against the City and its Chicago Police Department. “I’m very optimistic”. While living in New York City, through a mutual acquaintance I met a man of Rising Dragon Tattoo and was offered an apprenticeship based on the strength of my drawing skills…that’s where the idea to open my own shop was born. I believe with the right location once situated and teaming up with an associate to help take care of shop operation, such as making appointments, bookkeeping and ordering supplies while I focus on maintaining customer satisfaction as the working artist…then perhaps, such an idea can actually become a realistic goal. Optional avenue to communicate with me via institutional email available by signing up (https://www.connectnetwork.com/webapp/jsps/signup/signup.cn)

I’ve had this pen pal service for a few months now and I haven’t made many friends at all. I’m not sure if it’s my intro or maybe my pics. A lot of girls especially see me and think I might be rude or arrogant but in actuality I’m very soft spoken. I don’t approach many women or act wild! Most of my time is spent working out and studying many different things. I’ve read countless books from Vampire fiction to Stock & Bond books plus everything in between; 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Swan Song…the list goes on. I’m full of senseless trivia and can talk to you about the stars or the hardest metal on the planet. I wouldn’t go as far to say I’m unltra-unique but I will say I can sometimes feel misunderstood. I’ll be seeing parole again in November 2017 so I’d really like to make some new acquaintances. Looks or $ or where you come from mean little to me because I know everywhere and in every crowd there’s good and bad people. Please don’t be afraid to write, I’m just looking to socialize and network. I’m not going to promise a whole bunch but I will say don’t judge a book by the cover. So let’s learn from each other, write ASAP…

Just a thought for you no matter where you are mentally, physically or even spiritually, but for the thinker…Our Divine Maker insists that we learn to fine-tune our own understanding of His timing. We must learn to accept that the Creator gives according to His own schedule and not of our demands. Once we learn God’s timing in all things, we will learn how to live and work in harmony with ourselves and others around us. Though most importantly, we will begin to truly understand the art of communion with the silent voice of the Universal will. Each day we all experience a thousand successes and a thousand failures. However, victory lies in perseverance. When we are steadfast in correcting our course, we can figure out how to recreate ourselves as the heirs to the abundance of this so called world. The key is finding out if you have the courage to do it.

THOUGHTS ON LIFE

My mother said to me after I told her it’s crazy how time flies – that I should talk to her when I’m her age. I look back at the time and people I took for granted and see how much I have missed out on because I chose a lifestyle over them that caused hurt. For awhile it was hard coming to terms with the fact that I needed to change everything about what I thought I knew about living and loving those in my life but myself as well. Living and loving isn’t a means of gain but a means of having values and boundaries that expresses sincerity when wrongs are committed, learning from mistakes, encouraging those in your life to be the best they can be and by being an example that they can learn from. When I started to forgive myself, so much weight left my life. When I sought forgiveness from those I hurt, I found people who not only forgave me but believed in and loved me that much more. When I cut influences from my life that hindered this insight, I forgave those who hurt me, believed in myself and loved those who God blessed me with, with a love that doesn’t judge. Michael

COLLEGE

My fellow entrepreneurs and I are the first Pioneer Group to graduate Defy Ventures Entrepreneurship Program at Pelican Bay State Prison.(visit defyventures.org , ask for link to Defy graduation, B-yard, 7-22-17, E.I.T Dominic Brown, Relationship-Friend to see graduation photo's) The Defy graduation was the best day I've had in prison. I finished Top 10 in the business pitch competition and socialized with Entrepreneurs, CEO'S, Business Owners and Social Activist. It was an amazing experience; realizing society's elite’s attitude that human beings live a mistake free life is simply not true. Nobody's perfect, we all have made mistakes, and change is possible! I met some intelligent people and learned how to strengthen my business idealizations.

TODAY

Today, I’d like to give you this little glass that holds the unrelenting memories of my past that shackles my being. I hope today turns out to be the day I wished it to be for us. In the past I have always yearned for someone to love, to cherish and share my dreams with. I have found in you what it means to love, regardless of the situation that is in front of us. I love it when our names are together. Rio and ? How does it sound to you?

WOMEN ARE SACRED

The finishing touch to creation. Some things words can’t explain. She is one of the wonders of the world. However, in many cultures, it’s the woman’s fate to be subservient. It’s usually found that a woman is treated as inferior. Understand that men of real worth, respect and love their wives. This is no accident. A man succeeds in the world to the same degree that he loves his wife. The insecure treats his other self like a dog or a horse. Consequently he is little more than an animal himself. A man who loves his wife will conduct his life properly to please her, thus he will rise up in the world. To such a man his wife becomes a source of strength and refuge. Thinking of her not as a possession, but as a part of himself, like the heart, the soul, a finishing touch. There is a mystical significance to the love for a woman. Out of love for her he goes out into the world to be a success. This is a great virtue. I believe that the more prevalent this attitude is, a truly beneficient social order would once more come about and the virtue of an indigenous nation would be restored. Imagine if we could teach our daughters to value their bodies and brains for what they can do, not for how others think they look. To understand as females they define the word feminine and that it doesn’t define them.
