After 24 years of doing prison time, the Humans of San Quentin brought freedom to my heart and soul on May 2nd with their recognition event celebrating us. I couldn’t believe something like this could be possible: cake, pizza, and amazing entertainment from creative, talented prisoners, singing, dancing and telling stories. I felt like we were all camping around a bonfire of beautiful energy! It was sad to see the event come to an end. I wish it could have gone on forever!

I look forward to these events because it’s all I have. Honestly, I daydream of sharing my life with that special someone. I’ve been feeling pretty lonely lately. I stay busy, and  I’m always on the move with my painting projects. I just completed a painted skateboard that would be sold and donated. The painting is one of a kind, a rose and sunflower seed, rising out of a grave, reaching towards the universe, a sea shell of stars and order of zodiacs. Thank you, Humans of San Quentin, for what you do for the people inside. Xoxo
