Hello Gary
My Dad did the whole genealogy thing a few years ago. Hoping we had some land we could claim here in England. No such luck! When Oliver Cromwell destroyed the monarchy in the 1650s he burned down most of the churches, and the records in them. Wasn’t a good move. He ultimately ended up with his head in a stake at traitors gate. So UK records are a bit dodgy. I do know for sure that my ancestors lived in a house formerly located right on Trafalgar Sqaure, where Nelsons Column is. And it was sort of strange because before I found out that’s where we lived I always felt oddly familiar in that part of the West End of London. St Martins in the Fields in Trafalgar Square is known as the actors church, for some reason. And I’d visited it many times without being aware that my relatives had their christenings, confirmations, marriages and worshipping there hundreds of years before me. Hopefully you’ll visit when they release you from your gated community. London is the best city in the world.
I got a really good boast on being related to someone special though. My cousin was married to Billie Holidays half brother. They had two kids, one of whom died recently. They were in the USA. I only met the guy once though.
Rich relatives are a myth. Got two millionaires in my family who wouldn’t give you a bucket of water to put yourself out if you were on fire! Wouldn’t want to find out I was related to our royal family, they are sort of an unhappy bunch. I’m glad Meghan Markle has taken Harry to the USA, he will be happy there, and safer!
I did do the dna thing, 23 and me. Viking blood and lots of Celtic warrior, which is what I suspected.
My daughter has this bloodline now, plus some Kashmiri genes too. I love how the world is blending. Although it seems to terrify a lot of people. And we’ve only just,started. In a few hundred years time, if we make it, we will be a sight to behold.
Look after yourself.

Thanks for writing! I finished the transcription for your post.

The time that has been spent since this post has been rough on all of us(prisoners included). A lot of what you said resonates with me. I can only hope that the vaccines that will come out soon can at least help us get back in the right direction. I enjoyed the letter; I think the situation that happened in London at that time still rings true today.

Stay safe and healthy, my guy.

I’ve known Troy for over a year now and I have grown to love him. He is a very intelligent ,respectful and a loving man and have shown me nothing but love. He came into my life when my days was filled with nothing but darkness and Troy shined his light on me and changed all of that. He is a beautiful person inside and out. His words has touch me in so many way and I can relate to his poems on many levels. He always tries to makes the best out of his current situation and still manages to make me smile with his simple words. That’s why I love him so much and one day the world will see how amazing he is and appreciate everything that he has to give. Troy is misunderstood and wasn’t given a fair shot but I believe that God has a plan for him and he will be free. He believes that everything happens for a reason so as we continue on this journey together we will always be family and our hearts will continue to beat as one!!!!

Thanks for writing! I worked on the transcription for your post, but haven't finished it yet. It was so interesting hearing about how your life has been affected by covid. I truly have so much empathy for you and so many others like you, that are put in such a dangerous environment with no relief in sight.
I hope for the best for you

I am glad to hear that you are maintaining a healthier weight and have also set the goal to write each Sunday. Good luck!
I send you condolences about your friend Ely. I will pray for her soul, and of course I am praying for you and your health. I hope that you and your fellow inmates will stay safe and healthy during these uncertain times.
