Thinking Outside of the Cell
Would you earnestly help me if I asked you?
Hello out there, free world! My name is James, and I am sending out my words with a prayer that I could hopefully touch the heart of one who would be a friend willing to help me see beyond the very four walls that encase my body but hasn't fully hardened my heart, mind or soul.
Now you may be asking yourself: "In what simple way could I possibly help this man maintain his sanity?" My reply would be: "By first allowing me to become your friend." You see, through life's ups and downs, I've learned the important value of pure, unadulterated, friendship and its necessity, appreciation and ultimate respect of thereof. So, if you decide to lend your support on my behalf, in return you can be certain that I'll never violate or take your friendship for granted. You can count on me to always have your best interests at heart.
Solitary confinement has the potential of robbing a person of their desire to imagine life beyond the four walls that encase them 24 hours a day, every day. Therefore, my honest plea is that through you granting me friendship, I can "see" and "hear" about the world through your eyes and ears! You can tell me about whatever it is you may be doing: education, world events, music, fashion, parties, gatherings, job or school environment. If you wish, you could send pictures of animals, trees, grassland, rivers, lakes, dogs, birds in flight. You know, images that would stimulate one's sense to prevent sensory deprivation. I'd love to hear life stories of one's upbringing and community life. I will also share my life experiences both prior and during incarceration. I have so much to share and vice-versa.
Being confined, one becomes an excellent listener and that's one of my greatest assets. USA, Europe, Africa, Asia, etc. Your wholesome, down-to-earth, and honest friendship remains crucial to one's humanity! Contact me by writing:
