Hi everyone.

I love the sound of doves cooing, and their… I guess you would say their growling noises at each other.  Specially when they are fighting over a cheese puff.  See, my doves loved cheese.  I also love the sound of a loon’s cry and the crow’s caw, the owl’s “who” and the hummingbird’s flutter of their tiny wings as they collect nectar from the flowers.  The talking of my friend’s African Grey.  She whistles, counts and screams at you when you come into the house, unless you give her a Ritz.

I love the sound of a tattoo machine, cuz it means that when that tat is all done and finished there will be a beautiful design.  I love the sound of the bubbler fish tank.  In fact, that is what I used to listen to, to fall asleep.  Now, I listen to my fan.  Te sound of water running down a waterfall.  The ocean crashing into shore as I run across the sand with my son.  The thunder as it rumbles the Earth, and the rain down pouring on the ground.  Each has a different sound whether it is concrete, grass, tar or dirt; I love the sound of it all.

Lastly, I love the sound of All that Remains’ “the waiting one.”  Cross fades: “Cold.  Avenged Sevenfold: “Nightmare.”  Any and all music by Trapt, Nirvana, Cradle of Filth, Five Finger Death Punch, Chimera, Type O’ Negative, System of the Down.  Most music in general, especially music in musicals like “Repo, the genetic Opera,” and “Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street.”

Finally, I love the sound and the laughter of my son.

Dear Circle:

I feel like shit.  I had a siezure friday night at 11:00pm.  I put my teeth through my bottem lip.  I’ve been sleeping since Friday night.  It is now Sunday night.  Takes alot out of me.

I can’t wait to hear from you guys.  Need numbers to call to talk to you people out there.  I need pictures of all of you two.  I would love a picture of a guy with a hairy chest with his shirt off!  I love resting my head on a hairy chest!arline.july.2017

Arline

 

Well,

here I am at the women’s correctional center, up at Windham Prison.  I got sentenced back in September.  I got nine years all suspended but 18 months and four-year probation.

I don’t care for the levels, you spend about 21 hours in your room.  There’s three levels and on level three you can stay out until midnight.  I’m already in a double cell.  I have a very good roommate.  She’s negro and a lesbian.

I can’t wait for classes to start.  I signed up for three of them.  They now have a pre-release for the women, but I don’t care if I go there of stay here.  They have a really good commissary and you can spend up to $100.00 and they have three different care packages that people on the outside can order you.  Next month I might have Pete order me one.  I’m really hoping to run Pete and my nephew through so they can come for a visit, the both of them held me up at county.  I know that when I get out of here I’ve got to buckle down and behave myself.  I’ve got a lot of time hanging and certainly don’t want to go back to county.

Boy, there’s room restriction crazy here, a lot of women are doing room restriction.

I can’t wait until commissary on monday.  Supper was lousy tonight.  Beans, hotdogs, coleslaw, biscuit, apple, juice, water.

Please write me, guys.  I’m really hoping to hear from you.  Please!

Love,

Miss Linda
