James, it has been awhile since you published a picture. Very nice...matisse.

The landscape you painted for me is in my living room...close to the TV. This is a true story James...people want to take that picture off the wall and look at it up real close. You remember the one, the far away and lonely home and light house by the sea. I have heard some interesting comments from some pretty informed people of the quality of that drawing.

Not a single person said who drew it...but many people know my missions and would not ask. Your past is past...time to not care what people say about a guy that does not exist any more.

I sent you a few pages from the ships book but you either did not receive them or did not need them.

Anyway James...your talent is God given...your present is trying...your future is open. People will know your heart when they meet you.''

The internet is deep James, who can see the bottom? So I will research some more naval battles of the 16th to the 18th centuries and try and find a good few free of copy restrictions. It will go snail mail, so I pray you will at least receive one of the two communications.

No, I never received returned mail from you, and I thought as my correspondence ministry goes, some guys just decide to drop off. My interest is spirituality but the art of writing is what keeps a pen in my hand. Astounding diversity from the belly of the beast.

I will offer a Mass for the intention of your parole hearing. As for me, unworthy but blessed. FJP
