I need help with typing. Badly. People see my website and I believe they think that I have some massive support base. Sure there are plenty of people who theoretically support me in a sort of detached non-active manner.
There are only a few people who actively work with me on things. One person runs my website, MySpace and Facebook. This same person does the typing for all of my updates. Yes, one person, does all of this by herself. It’s really just plain and simply wrong that she should have to do all this solely on her own.Read More
A New Yoga Discovery, Handel’s Messiah, Gift Giving In Prison and a Nice Dream: Merry Christmas! – December 25, 2009
“Jesus is just alright with me, Jesus is just alright oh yeah/Jesus is my friend.” It’s 3:30 a.m. Christmas morning and I just woke up with that classic rock song playing in my mind. I think I’ll spend the day writing a type of Christmas Day Diary. My good Jesus-hating Atheist friends will have to cordially pardon me but I’m quite filled with holiday cheer.
3:35 a.m. Breakfast just arrived. We only get decent food—which includes an apple and an orange—twice a year on Christmas and Thanksgiving. I just put the fruit in my bowl to save until I finish morning yoga…
4.45 a.m. Kirtan, meditation and about 25 Asanas and now I’m ready to embrace the World today! While meditating I vividly remembered a beautiful dream I had last night.
My dreams are so very eccentric, whimsical, and otherworldly that I could never even begin to properly describe them with words. I’ll give it a try though. Imagine my point of view as the most advanced video camera in existence, one able to zoom in and out within the span of a millisecond.Read More
Another pillar that holds up property officer Smith’s reign of terror has been revealed: Cheryl Lawson. I don’t know who she is, but her name is on the “signature authority” line of the step 2 grievance I filed concerning Ms. Smith on 10/12/09. I just received the grievance back tonight. Here’s the response:
Your step 1 narrative, investigation, and response have been reviewed. This investigation finds you were offered a settlement on 12/8/09 and refused. Therefore, no further action is warranted.
You can check out my updates The Most Perfidious Ms. Smith Strikes Again (aprox. 7/28) and Ms. Smith’s Apologist (9/29) to be informed of details of this whole ordeal, but here’s the gistRead More
Tonight I received a D.R.C. appeal ruling for 3 books the unit mailroom denied recently. Below is the text of the appeal I filed with the D.R.C. and the two sheets that are the ruling on the appeal. Just another example of TDCJ bureaucratic despotism. I wonder if they would have denied 3 copies of the new book by that most profound right-wing darling Sarah Palin…?Read More
I was just over here washing clothes and dancing around my cell while listening to a Hanukkah special on the radio. I’m still listening to it while I write this—they’re playing some Jewish folk music in Yiddish and it’s jammin’.
This reminds me of a conversation I had a while back. My neighbor and I were talking about the nature of the “role model” in society and at one point in the discussion he asked me this question: If I could have a week-long conference with 10 well known people who are alive and 10 who are dead, who would I choose?—Everyone would speak the same language and everyone would be compelled to tell the truth.Read More
There are few experiences more distressing to the human Spirit, more disturbing to the human psyche, than seeing someone you care for murdered. Since Reg’s execution I have indeed been rather disturbed and distressed.
Although I didn’t witness his actual execution take place I did see him being dragged off to be murdered; I saw the initial process of the murder take place. Looking out of my little window waiting to see Reg leave his last visit I fell into a catatonic state …
Then, I went through various emotional states. I attempted to write down what all went on but I would get to the point where I could barely write.Read More
