The sands of time records everyone's journey and so often paths cross and people walk awhile together, along the same roads through life. But, make no mistake, life is lived within the journey, not the destination. So having said that, I am looking to walk awhile or maybe an entire lifetime with you… the reader. I'm looking for nothing more than what you are willing to share as a true friend...

Dear Future Friend,

Hi! :) to be completely honest I don’t know what I can say that you may not have already read in the hundreds of profiles to stand out; but I’ll try. To start, I’m not the best at this writing letters thing. I sometimes put my foot in my mouth. I’m an accident-prone klutz. Silly, with a childish heart and geeky. I love...

At some point you have to stop obsessing over or thinking about writing something and just get it done. That is where I am at. I’ve been writing and rewriting this ad for MONTHS while watching the mailman run past my cell, until I realized that the longer I obsessed about making my ad perfect, the longer I would watch the mailman go by.

How can I separate myself from other ads you’ve...

Please allow me to introduce myself to you: my name is Paul David Storey.  I am currently a prisoner on Death Row, at the facility where I’ve been since September 16th, 2008….  But there is a strong possibility I will leave here one day due to prosecutorial misconduct in my case...

All my life I have broken things I meant to fix.  I guess that would be the best introduction for someone in my position.  It's funny how such a tiny, insignificant, dozen times a day action can become a point of no return. 

Before all of this, I thought I knew things well.  I thought I knew who I was, where I fit and what my future would bring.
