Earlier this week I sent out my 3rd reply to San Quentin. He’s only sent 2 letters so far.
I find San Quentin’s letters quite intense. Often he’s writing about life in prison and how tough SQ is. We haven’t spoken about why he’s in prison, or his life before the arrest. Mainly he asks about my university degree, how great it is that my brother is going to uni as well, and that he wishes he had more education opportunities available inside prison.
This letter he’s spoken a lot about my dogs, and the lack of visits from his family. He may receive a letter once in a while, but after his sentencing they mostly lost touch. He’s written a lot about the solitary confinement, and that if he does get outside he’s cuffed at all times.
The rest of the letter was talking about his belief in ghosts, and his favourite bands/music.
