  Saxophone Help.
On an unrelated item, be sure to try a couple different reeds on your new saxophone.

If you remember from my earlier letters, or do a search for reeds, you will find the major difference I found going down to a 1 1/2 or 2 from the 3 that was originally sent. It would have been much easier when I started if I had the lower number reed. Once you get the hang of it you could go up to the stiffer reeds.

Well it is 9:10 PM. I am not sure if I am going to cook a bean and rice meal or not. The fingers are starting to do their own thing on the keyboard and the spell checker if beeping its fool head off.

I hope some of this makes sense, and that you realize it comes from my heart. It is not a criticism of you at all, simply my attempt to hopefully share some of the insight that I have been able to honestly look at as a result of my years in prison, my six years of therapy, and a willingness to share. Understand that I can not come up with specific actions that I expect you to follow word for word; you need to run it through your own compiler.

By the way, the gangster wanna be is a twenty something white guy. For the record, his name is Myron Goldberg.

I have been sitting here typing for over two hours with my headphones on listening to Country music, and I just took the headphones off to get my pad from the locker and the 'dorm noise' was like the sound of nails on a blackboard.

I thank you for allowing me to share this time with you and to raise myself above the trash I am surrounded with twenty-four/seven. Off to proof and print.
