Well,

I’m almost done this bid.  112 days left.

Boy, there’s a lot of bullying and saving seats in here.  It’s like kindergarten with these people.  I’m still going to meetings and groups.  I started a writing class; it’s alright.  A little boring.  The one I really enjoyed which we graduated from about two weeks ago was Houses of Healing, a very intense group where you try to find your inner self.  I’ve got about three more classes in Moving oOn, I’ll be graduating the GEAR group.  I’ve got about six more classes in codependency group.  “They” put me in the 18th, I’ll be starting “Seeking Safety”.  I’m in

Sarssm group untill May.  That’s a really good group about trauma.  I’ve got a really great sponsor; she’s got 35 years of sobriety.  She’s taking through this book called “the steps we took.”  She also comes in on Sundays and she’s taking everyone through the Big Book.  April 13th will be my big first year of Sobriety.

Hope to hear from you guys soon.

Hey,

Could someone send me more information on Saba Islet?  Is hellsgate some sort of prison?  Search any of the news information involving both Bottom and Windwardside that could be used as adventure ideas.  Has any treasure been found on the island?  In the old days I believe it used to be a buccaneer’s strong hold.  Also wondering if someone could send me some more spells from the Dragonsfoot website.  Looking for Voltaic Thread and Pollen Ball, plus some magic user spells like eye parasite and a few of their illusion phantasm spells.

Thanks.

Hey, Circle!

It’s good to hear from you guys.  Hope that all is well.  I’m doing alright, living the dream, you know?  Waiting on Pre-Trial to get me outta here.  It’s such a slow process, because I was using and I don’t have an address currently.  They’re putting me in a twenty-eight day rehab program on the border of Canada.

I’m having a status conference soon, and if I’m able to get out of here without Pre-trial, I’ll be back at the Preb; Pretrial won’t release me straight to there… but, yeah, I’ll be going to a sober house called “the Farm”  in LImestone, Maine.  Temporarily.  But my dad’s helping me out with an apartment and a car as soon as my court stuff is resolved, hopefully after the 28 day rehab.  I’m hoping that I can plead out at my status conference and get time served, and if not then with probation,  I doubt that, because it’s a class B felony but the jail is at max capacity.  I haven’t been indicted that I know of; my case is all hear-say.  No hard evidence.  They searched my place and didn’t find anything.

Say a prayer: I’ve been here 86 days so far.  Hope to see everyone on the outs; hope to get a place in Portland.

Hope to hear back from you guys soon,

Tom

“ONce a human being has arrived on this Earth, communication is the largest single factor in determining what happens to him in the world.” – Virginia Satir

This is a quote that I will remember and use for the rest of my life.  It’s encouraging, inspiring, and yet it is also extremely daunting.  My greatest skill is communication , so that is why it is encouraging, but I am also careless with my words l, or use them as weapons to wound and hurt.  Th hear this quote and to think upon it, that my skill or lack thereof and the role that this will play in my life makes me realize that I have a lot of improving to do.  It has made me decide to devote my full effort to this class (Public Speaking)  so that I can get everything possible out of it to maximize my potential.

One of the things that struck me about this chapter was the part where it said that communication is irreversible.  I like the quote: “One seldom regrets unspoken words.”  Like I said earlier, I have the gift of gab, but I often speak  without thinking about the impact my words will have.  This is a great problem for me because I am at the crossroads of my life, in the next couple of years and my actions, words, behavior during them will determine what happens with the rest of my life.  My biggest challenge over the last couple of years has been slowing myself down.  When somebody asks what is going on with me I tell them “slow motion.”  This is a reminder to myself to slow down and think before I act, or speak.  I used to operate under the misconception that I had to be moving fast at all times or I would gt bored or not get to my destination.  Now I understand that “slow motion is better than no motion, and no motion is better than moving backwards.”  I fully believe that when I master this in my speech than I will have mattered it in all aspects of my life.

I also was a big fan of the book “Communication Skills for your life.”  The part where it said that every time you talk with someone you either enlarge or diminish that person hit hard.  I am playing chess with my life right now, those reminders serve to drive somehow everything I do and say matters.  In addition I do not wish to be the kind of person who when others finish a conversation with me they do not want to have another.  The last two things I will speak about here are the topics of “Not taking things so personally,” and “listening without verbal interruption.”  those are two things that I find myself doing with frustrating regularity.  When I take things personally, I usually respond with person ao attacks and as you can imagine I engage in a lot of verbal sparing.  As for interrupting ever since I read about the twelve second rule (wait 12 seconds before you answer someone.) I have paid more attention to that.  I find that I interrupt way too much.  Largely because I find that either what I have to say is more important or i just don’t want to hear something I already know.  Both of these reasons are rude and arrogant.and unacceptable.

As I am,

Prince

Well,

I got written up, so I'[m now on cell restriction.  I had my D-board yesterday, and I got four days cell restriction, no loss of good time, plus, I can go to my groups, and meetings.  I got it for passing and recieving.

There’s nothing that i like about Augusta and Kennebec County Jail.  Officer Morrisette was my favorite officer.  All the other guards I really didn’t know.  They hired some.  Officer Cote was alright.  She did the female trustees.  She put me in laundry.  they were good to me when I got my good time.  I had five months in and they gave me 165 days.

I get out, I’m hoping, the first week of June.

Love,

Miss Linda

I am the invincible dragon,

who is plated with gold sheets,

and red rubies,

and a breath of fiery hearts.

I feel my challenges in full force and with empty mind.

I must be falling in love with every moment of my life.

Why?

Because I am positive of it.

Hi.

Here’s more on the module.  I hope that everyone interested enjoys.

The City of Oceanmorn takes great pride in the University and students are known as “anchormen”

By virtue of an agreement struck by representatives of the local Whore’s UnionBeggars Guild, Thieves Guild, Assassins Guild, Sorcerers Guild, the Knights of the Anchor and the Boosters, Wealthy supporters of the school, Black Anchor University and it’s students have been declared off-limits for any kind of criminal activity. No student is to be harmed or robbed in,  way, shape or form.  Any one who does any of the previous incurs the wrath of not only law enforcement, but also the wrath of the multitudinous members of the dark guilds listed above, not to mention thee wrath of all the students, ex-students, teachers lots of whores and anyone else who is even remotely connected to to the school/whorehouse.

Students and graduates of the University have a tattoo in the palm of each hand and adventurers who have graduated from the University have a tattoo placed on their foreheads, of a black anchor, encoiled with a serpant eating a tiny naked woman with the words “INTO VAGINUS CUM PENIUS MAXIMUS” benearth.  The tattoos ward off all aquatic undead and all other forms of undead will leave the wearer of the tattoo alone when they see it.

The University has its own security department, made up of well paid high level (seven +) fighting men, known as “the Knights of the Anchor.”  The dress exactly like Maine State Prison Guards, but with helmets, shields and swords.  Unfortunately, their security license gives any of the guards power over any student or teacher at the school, regardless of class or level.  Any new student, male or female, can expect to be raped and gang-banged, until these uncontrollable rakes are reigned in.

The University has a large and well-stocked library that includes a large number of journals, spell books, scrolls and diaries written by the ancient mages and bards.  Special permission must be given to anyone who wants access to the spellbooks and scrolls.  The School of Magic is a five-year school and the students go to school year round with two – three-week vacations a year. There is a Courtesan Department, where women learn how to suck dick, make pies and knit sweaters. The College of Music is first class, and has a large number of students with a passion for the musical arts.  It has a large selection of musical instruments, including, according to rumor, magical instruments that are occasionally given to the most gifted students. The Math Department is also wonderful, and with the Astronomy Department are constructing a telescope which will be able to see the surface of Mars.  The Chemistry Department is not good at all.  It is full of whores.

More to come.

Hi!

I’m taking eight different classes.  I turned 54 in November.  If you people don’t mind, and can would you please send me some money for commissary, plus we can smoke, $5.84 for 1839 and I have to bum cigarettes and it’s so hard to find one.

Last weekend during visits a girl had some pills brought in so we all had to go to our rooms and weren’t allowed to go to the bathroom until you were drug tested.  They were taking so long that my room ate and I used our waste can.  They also brought a dog in.  Four women got sent back to Windham Prison for being dirty.

Love,

Linda

Hello to the world outside the gates!

I wanted to give a big thank you to everyone and anyone who supports a prisoner, and I mean, in any way, from postcards to prayers.  If it wasn’t for all of you and your support, I think a great deal of us would just give up, expire.

Every letter that we get in here is like Christmas, I swear to you.

Christmas.

And I know that you’ve been meaning to write that long letter, but you don’t have to.  I mean, I’d love the long letter, but who knows when that will get done?  It’s always cool to get a postcard, or any mail.

Thanks to everyone who’s supported and supporting me, especially, my girl, Catia.  Thank you, love.

And thank you, everyone!

Pax,

Fuzion
