First I would like to wish everyone a safe, blessed and Happy Holiday
Season. I pray that 2011, is a year that brings much joy, happiness and
success, to you and your loved ones.

This will be my last blog until 2011, and this blog won't be anything
deep, or like what my normal blogs are. I would just like to leave you all at
the end of 2010, with a message of love, commitment and dedication to those
with whom you love.

I have been incarcerated since Jan. 02, 1996, and for much of that time
I have been on my own. My family is not in my life and I guess every since
the passing of my mama I haven't felt much of a connection to anyone, except
for Sandra. I hold no grudge against my family, or friends, I put myself here
and I have to do this time. Because if I allow this time to do me,then I will
never leave this prison, with my sanity intact. So, I have had to learn how
to really love myself, enjoy myself and live for my self. However, I would give
anything in this world to have one person whom truly loved me for me and
accepts me for the man I am, and the possibilities within.

So, for those out there, not as 'A New Year's Resolution,' but out of love,
commitment and dedication, and do not wait until next year - start right now.
LOVE YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO HOLD ON TO ANYTHING, BUT
LOVE, HAPPINESS AND JOY. YOU MAY NOT HAVE A PERFECT FAMILY, BUT FAMILY IS ALL
YOU HAVE. AND, FAMILY ALSO INCLUDES YOUR FRIENDS. EXHALE! RELEASE ALL THE
HEAT AND ANGER THAT MAY BE WITHIN YOU AND LOOK INSIDE THE VERY BEST PART OF
YOU-YOUR HIGHER HALF AND FIND PEACE. THAT PEACE THAT ALLOWS YOU TO FORGIVE
THOSE THAT MAY HAVE WRONGED YOU.

LOVE IS SUCH A POWERFUL WEAPON AGAINST ANY INJUSTICE. WE HAVE TO LEARN
THAT WHEN THINGS FEEL LIKE THE WORST EVER, TURN TO GOD. GOD, NEVER LEAVES US,
IT IS US THAT LEAVES HIM.

FOR THOSE WHO HAVE A KIND AND LOVING FAMILY, YOU ARE TRULY BLESSED, SO
NEVER TAKE THAT LOVE FOR GRANTED. SPEND EVERYDAY OF YOUR LIFE KEEPING THAT
CONNECTION, BOND AND FOUNDATION SOLID AND STRONG.

SO PLEASE DON'T LET THE HOLIDAY BE ABOUT PRESENTS OR YOU OR THINGS THAT
ARE IRRELEVANT. LET THE HOLIDAY, 2011 AND BEYOND BE ABOUT THE UNITY OF THOSE
IN YOUR LIFE THAT MATTER THE MOST TO YOU.

It has taking me 15 years, in prison to get an ounce of sense. To truly
understand (OR HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING) what life is really all about. Everyone
needs someone to love and one day (SOON) I HOPE TO FIND (THAT) SOMEONE SPECIAL TO
LOVE ME LIKE I NEED, WANT AND DESIRE. DON'T let it take you years to understand
what is so clear to see. LOVE IS TRULY THE JUDGE OF ONES HUMANITY.

RALPH WALDO EMERSON, BELIEVED THAT,
'Each of use must be a circle, inventing his own truth moment by moment, consumin
his truth as a snake consumes its tail, always rolling forward, living for this
moment and the next, only this moment and the next, always seeking the new,
becoming the new metamorphosing, every changing with our ever changing truths.
In transition, in progression towards the ever new self, said Emerson, 'I the
imperfect adore my own perfect."

Again, I wish you all well for the coming YEARS, be good to yourselves, but
most importantly be good to each other. Until next year................
HAPPY HOLIDAY'S

Respectfully,

Teze
