  Lots to Write about, Stay on One Subject.
It is a few minutes after 5:00 PM, Monday, and I am just starting to write for the first time since last Thursday.

I have plenty to write. I have letters to write; Mom and Dad, Editor, two pen pals, one local church. I have plenty of stuff to put out on the blog; "Admitting I still need to Proof my Writing", " Addition to the Locker Door", "Follow-up for the Wanna Be Gangsta", "Latest on the Nose, and the Lack of Fresh Air", "One More Explanation of the Mail", "Gotta Love Those Country Music Words", and Lots more

I can certainly do a good job of lying around on my bunk and reading. Unless I sit at the table and type nothing gets written. And there is no denying that even in my most depressed state, writing helps lift my spirit, and I am not talking about just writing about being blue.

I do appreciate all comments to cheer up, and do not write about being blue just to seek pity. It is only through the lows, can I truly appreciate the highs. I am also working hard at devising plenty of alternatives for lifting myself out of the dumps. Besides I do know some people do enjoy hearing someone is feeling more miserable than they are. And then there is the 'Well you are in prison you are supposed to feel depressed' crowd I like to reinforce from time to time.

I know the act of writing lifts my spirit, yet I will resist taking out the typewriter. I sit (or more likely lay down) on the bunk and read instead. The thing with the reading is that I will more than likely be reading a novel as opposed to working my way through the New York Times. [Truth in Blog posting: I typed four drafts for post yesterday, Monday, and it is now 3:25 PM Tuesday and I am just starting to proof and print them out. I did finish a book between the time I stopped typing last night and 3:00 PM today. "Life Support" by Tess Gerritisen.]

And this just in according to Thursday's (11/17/05) New York Times, "Congress Tumbles Two Alaskan Bridges to Nowhere" Upon closer reading of the article all is not as it appears. One wonders if the last word in the title is now - here or no-where watch for upcoming post.
