Hello Alyssa,

Sorry I didn't respond right away, but for the future, I will reply sooner. I sort of got caught off guard from your questions, but I like a person who is blunt and to the point. Now onto your questions.

The way I deal with missing women in prison: I try to network a lot so I can stay in contact with women, like writing or phone calls. But I also try not to let it get me all sad or depressed. Women are the most beautiful creatures on the planet, so it's easy to get caught up in missing them. They're so important. Without them, there would be no us, "men." I think some men may change not being around a women. You miss a woman more, you realize how valuable a woman can be—her presence, her smell, her awareness.

I can't speak really on those people who lose touch with a woman when released. Because I have been down 26 years and haven't got out. But I can assume how awkward it would feel for a person getting out and hasn't been in society with a woman in so long. Not knowing how a woman would react to certain things, like how you have sex, how would a person act if to say if you went out on a date with a person and another man tried talking to her. Not being in that situation in so long, I'd just leave. 'Cause nothing will ever bring me back to that situation.

A man dealing with their moods needs to be patient and take one day at a time. Being gone so long, a person does lose touch with society. Therefore, a person needs that woman who can help guide them back into society. Some people become institutionalized. I'm not one of them. I feel when they let me go—which will happen hopefully in this year—then I'll know how to adapt. One must take it one day at a time.

Okay, Alyssa. I hope this answers some of your questions. If it's okay, is it okay if I could correspond with you directly? If you feel you don't want me to have your address, you could get a P.O. Box. I loved your questions. I would like to have more of them.

Take care.
