Tuesday, December 4, 2012 Exposed to cool down later on this evening, I find myself counting the hours. I also can’t wait to wash my clothes and sheets. It would be pointless to watch them before the temperature cools down, just too quickly dirty them up all over again from sweating profusely besides; washing close… Read More

Sunday, December 2, 2012 I was very pleased to see my son’s face when I walked into the visitation room today. It’s so comforting to see how his face lights up when he sees me to, and he grabs me and gives me a super long bear hug. I couldn’t ask for a more fulfilling… Read More

Saturday, December 1, 2012 Today is the first day of December, and yet I’m still sitting in my cell breaking the constant sweat. It almost seems like we won’t even get to have a winter this year. No matter how hot it gets outside, they will not stop pumping heat through our vents until next… Read More

Friday, November 30, 2012 Today I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I’ve been dragging around the fear of another altercation for the last three months and steadily taken its toll on me. My guard is still up and it will continue to be up for the duration of my… Read More

Thursday, November 29, 2012 Now that it’s done and over with, I am glad that my bunky forewarned me about our trip to the gym after all. When they unlocked all of our cells for lunch today they said that everyone had to leave so that they could spray chemicals for bugs. They do this… Read More

Wednesday, November 28, 2012 Today seems to be one of those days that I just can’t think of a single thing to write about. I hate living in a constant fear for my safety. My bunky says that there’s talk of another thing going to happen in here. The tension in here is supposedly so… Read More

Tuesday, November 27, 2012 It’s hard for me to understand how much turmoil is still around the world. There are so many terrible things happening all around the world, like war, pollution, climate changes, oceans rising, shorelines disappearing. We can control robots on Mars, grow human ears on the back of a rat, I even… Read More

Monday, November 26, 2012 I find that I constantly have to kick myself to stay on track; stay focused, and not get down in the dumps. The way of life that I have chosen to live in here as a prisoner is a very difficult one. I have not taken the easy road by living… Read More

Sunday, November 25, 2012 Tough day surrounded by screaming animals all aroused by the emotions of the Holidays and missing their families.   There are wild beast in this place!  Caged, human animals!  W!ow, where is the reform? I miss my kids

Saturday, November 24, 2012 I often get the length of time I have left to serve stuck in my head. Needless to say I make it very hard on myself when I think like this. It makes time seem like it’s standing still. I try to read, listen to music, watch TV, and I just… Read More

Friday, November 23, 2012 I just received a very inspirational letter from my mother. She copied a message from another man that reads my blogs that I’ve never even met before. I’ve always wondered if my writing is reaching out to other people in need, and I’m thrilled to see that it is. This gentleman… Read More
