Dear Yenzin,
Thank you for your response! I received three of them just last night. Sometimes it can take a few weeks for me to receive them. Those posting my blogs for me have a lot to do, in addition to living their own lives too. I hope you don't mind my late response.

Yes, if I could get YouTube then I'd have a better idea of blogging.

What interests me? I have many interests. Music, arts, sports, politics... Somewhat philosophy, literature... The problem with it is I don't have access to those as much as I would like. On death row, we're not allowed to have a job or earn an income in any way. I even got in trouble for selling my own artwork several years ago. So, I can't buy those books I'd like to have or music or movies. The prison's library has some, but rarely what I request (books).

This may help you understand why I jump around from topic to topic so much. Or is that normal for a blog?

I have not read A Brief History in Time by Stephen Hawkins, but I've heard of it. It's been on my interest list for a couple years now. I haven't read Carl Jung's Red Book either. I do read but not as much as I used to.

Writing down my dreams... You've given me something to try. When I do remember my night dreams, it's usually just the very end. But if I write them down, maybe it'll help me to remember more of them as time goes by... Worth a shot, huh?

I've watched some educational shows on dreams and from those I've developed the opinion that they can be learning tools. Let's say you have a dream of a particular situation that you've never experienced in real life. Then one day you do. Your body's response will, or may, be different because it developed a memory of having experienced it before. A subconscious response. You may react more appropriately to the situation. Dreams, meditation.... training.

What do you think?

Yours truly,
