Fellow pen-palers, I invite you to give me the once-over, perhaps from there you may want little ol' me as a pen-friend.
Tidbits about myself, I'm a Yankee-Doodle, yes, undoubtedly a native son of the free world. Sadly, I find myself to be a homesick castaway forever marooned behind these jagged shores of the "Island of Misfit Toys." While stranded, I find some relief, likewise purpose, connecting with friends via snail mail, phone calls, visits, and now astonishingly, as well noteworthy, JPay e-mail! (hint-hint, nudge-nudge)
With my best foot forward, I cast this digital bottle in such hopes I will be found by someone whom, like myself, is open to new friendship only and the adventure that comes from it.
In spite of my long imprisonment, I'm still a gentleman, so no need to fret over stereotypes. I've remained true to myself and core values. I'm open and honest, my humanity, compassion, empathy, as well as, generosity are well intact. I still dance to the beat of my own drum (watch me get down, watch me get down!) As for some of my passions in life, I'm a people person, I appreciate the diversity and uniqueness in people from all walks of life. I find quirky, artsy things simply scrumpdillyicious, also I have an eclectic taste in many areas. I'm also a big believer in celebrating unbirthdays. Moreover, with confidence I can say, no treasure map is needed to find the real me.
The last 9 years in the free world, I was primarily a stay at home dad for my daughter and two sons. That was the time I was the happiest (sigh). While in prison, I've been able to really work on bettering myself. I've overcome many of my reading and writing disabilities (utilizing word processing for e-mailing is a godsend), among other things, I participate in self-help groups and I'm an AVP Facilitator.
Instead of continuing to attempt to razzle-dazzle you about myself, I'm thinking of how much better it would be if you discovered those unique parts of me for yourself by our interacting and exchanging ideas. Needless to say, the ball is in your court.
Either way the wind blows, may your mailbox always be the gateway to adventure and full of the blessings that pen-paling brings.
TTFN (Ta Ta For Now)
P.S. JPay/CDCR email overseeing bots can be unreasonably sensitive to red-flagging anything coming in or out. When that does happen, it can take 30 days or so to go through. Bear this in mind, I will respond to you.
