About: Yard Three

Yard Three, is a "Chapter" within my manuscript: Deathrow Arrival: Stranded Inside San Quentin (A Memoir). This memoir details my arrival on California's death row, a snap-shot of how I was wrongfully sentenced to death, and my decades of existence stranded on death row. The title derives from my poem: "Deathrow Arrival" (See: About Deathrow Arrival & the accompanying Poem).
This chapter details my move to Yard Three from Yard Two.
In the following sub-chapters I reflect on the "Big Brother" (Reality TV Show) mindset of inmates, who function with a carceral state of thinking, and procured my transfer to Yard Three. My initial outlook on corresponding with "Pen-Pals," and the perspective of other condemn inmates.
I reflect on my first visit, "Mother's Day," with my Mother, and the disappointment of my daughter not making the trip, which made the visit bitter-sweet.
Last but not least, I address my "Return to A/C" (Adjustment Centre/The Hole), and my couple of months in this restrictive environment.
This is my first typed draft of the manuscript, thus, forgive me for any errors of grammar mistakes. I simply wanted to give the reader a real view of California's death row and my personal experiences and daily ordeals.
