Dear Circle,

I love birds. I can write to you about them if you want to hear it. I raise doves. In addition, the place where we were we made a room for doves. We put hay down; they had a spot so they can multiply. A big water container and a big thing of food. Of course I was in there with them all the time. They had a birdbath that I paid $50 for.

Well, I guess I can tell you about my doves. Damien my son was about two years old. He kept saying “birdie, mama. Birdie, mama.” I said, “yeah we live in Rockland there are all kinds of birds.” Now after the third time of Damien saying “Momma, birdie.” I was changing the oil in my car. Then I got it off and the oily black stuff came out on me. I was not mad at Damien, just a little pissed off that I got the lug nut off.

Therefore, I took his jacket off and Damien keeps going “Momma, birdie. Momma, birdie.” Therefore, I put in “Rio” the child’s movie and put him in his playpen and I took my shower. The whole time I was in the bathroom , he kept yelling “Momma, birdies.” Therefore, I came out and heard this whining and his jacket was moving. I was, “What the fuck did he drag home this time.” I picked up a baby dove. Damien found the baby in the mud puddle. He asked we keep. I said, Sure, we can talk more after I talked about the baby dove and her name was “Peitrie” We didn’t know she was a female until she laid eggs.

Hey,

How is everyone?  I guess you could say I am okay for now.  Sorry for not keeping up with my blog but of course I will keep up with more parts now that it’s almost February.  Right now I am working on a new study on “God at the Center.” As soon as I’m done with it, I’ll copy it and send you folks a copy.

I will call as soon as I get more money, for it will cost me $3.50 but I guess it is worth the fact that you guys are my only friends as of now, for yes, this casr has taken alot away from me.

I have been working on passing around the Free List for, yes, it has come in handy for some of the guys in here.

Sorry for my writing; it’s late here, for hell, I only get a chance to write people at night, but I guess you could say it could be worse writing (LOL.)  Keep praying the court has a head and can see past the lies of the agents and overturns my case for you know I could never have done any of this crap.

Have you any pictures of Catherine?  For I could use some now that I can’t see her. Also enclosed are a couple of sermons of mine for I found a couple that I had copies of so I thought that I would send them.

Let Circle know that they are always in my prayers, for yes I keep  you guys in them everyday!

God bless and love,

Joel Dudley

Well, Happy January.  Have you had a good January?  Last night, for chow, we had ha and potatoes, breen beans, candied sweet potatoes, apple crisp and icecream.  Plus chocolate milk.  A good meal.

It’s 2016 now.  Have you seen the new Star Wars movie?  Have you been to L.L. Beans, yet?

As for Tor Strawbetty, I inform him that he is in luck.  I am to be meeting a group of dwarven windthrowers that have a ship that can get him where he needs to go; they are delivering me a couple of crates of Bar Harbor Blueberry Ale and afterwards they are heading to the moon.  They weill take Tor as a passenger.  As for climbing the mountain, there is a small outpost near the mountain called the “Aerie” that belongs to the Shi’ar; they can get him where he wants to go.

Well, it looks like the country’s gotten a lot of snow.  Well, good night and stay healthy.

On Dafa:

To be always truthful, compassionate, and to have tolerance in our hearts and actions, for all of God’s creations.  To do this in the face of adversity, to stick to the principle of the universe, zhen, shan, ren and is to cultivate our true character, “shing shing.”  this is what is truly correct for out truth in the nature of the cosmos!  This is cultivation!

Love,

Hey, Circle, what’s poppin’?

Right now, I only have 1 ½ classes and those will be done at the beginning of August. I finished Psychology with a B; I’m not particularly proud or happy about that. I dropped the ball there a little bit. I didn’t study for the test as much as I should have and rushed through the when I took them. It’s kinda disappointing because I want to major in Psy. But, lesson learned. One of my other teachers (for my business class) is from the Gardiner area. He knows me or at least of me. That was kinda awkward at first. I wonder, will I ever be able to meet somebody who knew me or knows me from my past and not feel that rush of shame? Anyways the awkwardness was all on my part and once I got past that, everything has been cool.

I’ve been getting a lot of winter sun and I love it. The Winter has had great weather (at least the first part.) What’s the best thing y’all have done outdoors so far? I haven’t played much this season; most of my games have been scheduled for the same time that I have class, but that’s okay. I’ll take the education over a couple of hours of fun any day. I recently lost my job because of scheduling conflicts between work and school. That kinda sucks because I definitely could use the money, but again, I’m putting school over everything else.

So I don’t know what’s up with Mariah. I’m a sucka for love. I know Allah has plans for me so I”m just gall back and see what’s really good.

Alright. I’m gonna hope that all is well with you and yours.

As I am,

Well,

My son had anticlastic shock about two weeks ago so I had to put all  my money so I could sing his lullaby that I wrote for him.  They called his father, then his new wife, and then they called my mom.  David (my ex-husband) was livid that the school didn’t call him first.  Well, my mother said that his cellphone was in the truck and so was hers.  Mom said that they were lucky that they could get a hold of me.  He could’ve died.  His oxygen went from 99 to 72.

There fore we have to try a bunch of things that he might be allergic to.  We think that one thing that he might be allergic to is tomatoes.  He had spaghetti the night before his scare.  Then he had tomato soup and grilled cheese.  They are not letting him have cheese, whole grain bread (only white.)  No tomato stuff, no pizza, beefaroni, ketchup, nothing tomato.  Also, no peanut butter and jelly.

On Wednesday he has to have an M.R.I. Thursday the eye doctor to see if he damaged his optic nerve.  You know with his oxygen level dropped so low.  Then on Friday he has to go see an allergy specialist.  Then the Monday after he has to go and see a neurologist.

Rage,

How are you?  Yes, I got the new pictures you sent.  I guess you know it put a smile on my face.

So what did you think of my first half of my blog?  AS I said, sometime this month I will write more.  When it comes down to my ministry here, I am writing sermons; I will send you one to post when I buy a new copy card.

Yes, any pictures you want to send would be okay.  So, I see that Circles are doing good.  I am glad to see that.  Yes, thank you for all of the updates.

So, did Crystal get the last letter I sent?  Yes, Mom and Cherokee told me that she lives in Westbrook with Mark.  My mom said she don’t see her anymore because she don’t go to the D&D she works at anymore.  Because my cousin don’t work there anymore.

I should be talking to Lori soon, for I will have more money on my phone account soo, for as soon as Lori puts money on my account I will end up putting some on my phone account.  I would take the time to call you , but I don’t have your phone number.  But, Hell, I know Lori should have it on her cell, but I never really asked her for it. (LOL)

I still wait to hear on my appeal.  I know it could take up to six months but I guess I am looking at it like no news is good news.  I guess that I can only pray that its that way.  (Please, God, please.)

Yes, when I get back to Maine, we’ll have to hang out, for I miss hanging out with my friends.  How are you guys doing?  I know that you guys have a lot going on for, yes, you are free, but I don’t know, though.  Even if I was out would we really be free, for hell, we are still bound by something.

I ask God to help us all, to help me when it comes to my appeal, for he is really the only one who can help.  So, I will say night for now.  I’ll write you more next week if I have the stamps.

God bless.

Pray for all.

Well, Rage,

I’m glad that you are feeling better.  Be careful and wear lots of warm clothing this winter.  Did you get a flu shot yet?  At the very least keep some tea and honey on hand in cse you get sick again.  It’s too bad you got evicted, at least you will be in Freeport, the home of L.L. Bean, which is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  Heck, you could go shop there at two or three in the morning.  All they did for us on Christmas was at chow they gave us some cake with orange frosting.

So, you named one of your cats after a crazy old woman in an old wedding dress?  Yes, Rage, I remember reading “Great Expectations” years ago and remember that character.  Which fictional character did you name the other cat after?  Well, next month is going to be Valentine’s day.  Do you have any plans for that day?  Hope you’ve got a nice place to stay in Freeport.  You know, I ust remembered a gaming company called “Green Ronin Publishing,” published a gaming book called “Freeport, City of Adventure.”  You might want to check that out.  Well, here it is, the new year and no snow, darn it.  It must be driving the skiers, snowboarders and snowplows crazy.

So,

I know that it’s been a couple of letters since I got back to you all.  My bad.  WE just finished psychology 101 and we had to write a long paper for that so my desire to write has been minimal.

I have been staying up at night and sleeping more during the day.  This year I have already completed more days of fasting then I eve have before.  I believe the difference is my attitude about it.  Like the cutting of my hari signifies, I looked at last summer’s Ramadan as an opportunity to really be serious about my faith and religion.  In the past I have ignored my hunger and thirst and treated it as something I had ti do, like a mind over body thing.

Last summer I embraced my hunger and thirst.  We have had an outside Imam (think priest/pastor) for about a year and he said something that really stuck with me.  A lot of people will make themselves hungry and thirsty this year but that doesn’t mean they’re fasting.  Fasting is a spiritual thing.  Embracing my hung er and thirst thinking about it (dare I say “pondering upon it” hah hah!) and the reasons why I’ doing it has made a world of difference.  It is extremely humbling to think that right now all around the world every Muslim that is able to be hungry and thirsty  But they are going to deny they’re cravings because Allah says that we should.  I’ve also been making my prayers.  I know, I know, it doesn’t sound like a big deal, but I was having trouble making all five prayers.  I always had some kind of excuse for why I couldn’t do it right now or why I couldn’t make them up.  Because you have from the time one prayer starts till the time of the next prayer to complete it.  Also you can do maku up prayers if you completely miss the whole time frame.  My man said something deep to me a couple months ago  He said, “You make sure that you make time every day to call your girl or play dominoes, why can you not make 5-20 minutes for God?” Food for thought.

As I am,

Prince

So,

Can’t wait to see you, brothers!  July 4th in the a.m.  I took a thirty day set back.  I wasn’t even able to get into court ’til, like, 18 days in, so I figured, what was another week at that point.  This time has been good for reflection.  I have to remain clean or I will end up doing the rest of this year hanging over y head.  And I would prefer not to do that.  I’ll have 8 months left when I get out.  I got to get my self locked on to the right path.  I’m ecstatic to be fully clean from suboxone.  I never realized how tough it could be coming off of it.

So, I got to the jail and a few hours later.  I look up and who do I see?  Yup.  Staci Lace!  Whore!  So Juan bailed her out.  Ha, ha, ha, because Juan has no idea what he’s in for in the long run.  I talked to her a little bit and gathered that she has trial June 16th for the stolen car.  She followed me even to jail. Ugh.

So, no Maggie, no?  We’ll track her down, my brothers.  I hope this letter finds you doing well.  I miss you and Bella terrible and I can’t wait to sees you.  I’m mailing this out on Monday night so you probably won’t get ut until Thursday, at which point I’ll be home within.. months?  I’ll get released at 9am on a Saturday.

Love you, brothers,

Kosmo
