I'd like to take this opportunity to reach out in hopes of meeting people with positive energy and making genuine friendships.  There is nothing more genuine than a real friend who can be safe keeping our thoughts and even of our own afflictions.  It’d be nice just to open up one's feelings to someone understanding.

I look forward to hitting the road less...

Thank you for taking the time out to stop and view my profile. I'm glad something caught your attention. Hopefully that something that caught your attention will allow me the opportunity to keep your attention.

Unfortunately, due to the limited amount of space to write our opening statement, I'm not able to provide as much detail about myself as I'd like to do.

When a person has the courage to innovate with their vision, and creativity, even a blind man will have the ability to see the world through the eyes of his beholder.  I wrote a thesis for my college, about a story, called “In the Rain”.  The story was based on a blind man that was blessed with many talents, one of them was that he was a very good piano player.  He was also in a...

Namaste. I thought long and deeply about posting a profile on this site being a sex offender, but the fact is I have to continue with life in spite of my circumstances. I can either wither and die of shame or accept my shame and move forward. I choose the latter. My motivations are this: I am a Buddhist, the only one here at this prison. I seek shelter in the Sangha out there. I have one hour...
