  Celebrate the individual!
I can only tell you my thoughts from my growing years was that the feeling of not fitting in is a really hard thing to deal with, and my parents’ tendency when I was able to vocalize it was to say keep trying. The hardest job a parent has is getting in touch with a child's fears and questions about life.

Hindsight tells me that it was OK to not have lots of friends; there were other things that could have made me stronger. Celebrate the individual!

I have leaned a lot about human relations and self worth reading the autobiographies and biographies. The one you sent me on Feynman is a good example of someone who did not fit in, and how it affected his life.

Does any of this make sense? There is more, but I will let you tell me if you want to kick it around some more.

Hmmm, this letter was six handwritten pages and it only filled two typed pages, and I cheated at the margins at that.

Now I am listening to a jazz song featuring an alto sax. Boy, my playing does not sound like that at all.

Practice, practice.
 
Comments:
Interesting that this blog was first established on April Fool's Day...

Statistically, the percentage of children who survive neglect and abuse but who grow to be intelligent and articulate adults, like yourself, is very low.

Most abused children demonstrate pyschological and behavioural disorders that seriously hinder their educational progress.

The few who successfully grow up to be intelligent, articulate adults are those who, statistically, don't abuse others, they have the intelligence and forsight to use their own experiences as examples of how NOT to treat others.

You fit neither category. (Misfit?)

...And the prison system permits inmates who have the potential to abuse others to use the internet as a forum for communication, knowing only too well, the potential it has to mislead people?

Weird.

There are too many contradictions to this whole scenario for me to give it any credibility, but it makes for interesting reading, nevertheless.

I hope you had a pleasant April 1st.

Inside or out.
 
error404, maybe if you actually read some of this website you would see that pete is not the one actually posting, it is his friend. They do not have internet in prison.
 
I have read the blog, even if his 'friend' is still doing the posting, the very articulate words he is posting are supposedly still those of 'Prison Pete'. Still, who am I to become judge and jury? 'Apparantly', Prison Pete has already been through that process...
