  Need to lift the emotional.
It is 1:00 PM. I did go out to walk this morning for an hour. I needed to use the physical to lift the emotional.

As I wrote to my parents yesterday, physically and intellectually I am doing well. The emotional pare of me is being tortured beyond belief. There is very little available here to feed the emotional part of me. That is a real problem, since it is the most likely of the three areas to profoundly affect my writing to you. It is hard to not sound needy, and like a lost soul when that is the truth. This is only a self-observation, I need to not nave all my letters to you sound the poor Pete theme.

Now that I understand some of the time consuming things, lot me offer a few suggestions. If I am indeed stuck here for years, the only asset I can build up over that time would be my writing. One has to wonder how much value there would be in events that are years old. Will the journey even have any literary value?

If I continue to send you sided one use carbon, or ribbon would you scan them in say once a week.

Once every weak to ten days, I send you a bunch of posts. I do a mix of my current surroundings and general posts, with the names and other identities already changed.

These pages will be either typed using a ribbon or one use carbon paper, if I can ever find a source.

I know you spent a lot of time on the blog, and often I was not aware of where your efforts were being spent and what I could do to help.

It was pure torture for me to try and convert my sloppy handwriting and mismatched thoughts into something worth posting on the blog. You really did put a tremendous amount of work into being my editor and I am grateful. I know my typed letters are still not perfect but I can see where the problems are and am constantly on guard no bring the level of my writing up.

I will work to eliminate as many errors as possible. Would this be a possible scenario?

I still send you frequent letters, and once every week to ten days I send you pages for b1og. You scan when you have chance.

I just sent the order for ribbons, etc. out to Mom end. Dad yesterday, and hopefully they will be able to place it by the end of this week. I will keep copies of anything I send you this week and retype with ribbon if you decide that you will create an image/text file.

I really do not want to borrow any more carbon paper, especially if I need to use each one only once. Would renting some hard disk space to store image files be an option? Who is to say the company would not vaporize at some point?

Well it is ten minutes to four and I am going to eat their alternate meal tonight of red beans and rice, no meat. Will come back and proof and print.

Well the mail and dinner are done; I still have not received the catalogs for that inmate food company, UP North, and Staples.

I also have not received the Hitchcock Shoes. If you could find the plain tan over the ankle work boot. I believe it may come with and without Steel toe. I think it cost between $150 and $200.
