Welcome to my nightmare… tales from a dead man

“Everyday it seems much harder tellin’ right from wrong”

The days grow shorter and the nights are getting longer and I fully realize we’re all running out of time. Yesterday I watched the death squad shuffle another off to the van of death after his final visits with loves ones. Rogelio Cannady is his name and I’m not sure if he was murdered by Texas last night but I know he was sent to the death house. It’s been a crazy month, full of death and sadness and Texas Justice.

I keep tellin’ myself don’t get discouraged, don’t be afraid, you can make it through another day. You’re the master of your own destiny, so you better take a look inside your head. Nothing is easy!

God Bless Us ALL!

Welcome to my nightmare… tales from a dead man!

“Death is only but a doorway to a greater way of being”

Greetings from beneath the stairs, somewhere in a cage in Livingston Texas. The execution man has sent two more souls to the other side of the light, Kevin Varga and Billy Galloway were put to death last week and what it has done to this place is really amazing. The ones who have been in denial about the seriousness of being on the waiting list of Texas Death Row have now woke up. I’ve heard more talk of what’s going on then ever before. These two were not of the child killing, baby raping, female rapist fanatics that plague the headlines and all. When people think of death row one automatically thinks Hannibal Lector and sick twisted folks, but the ones Texas has killed are no worse then all the other convicted murder offenders in population. So how is that justice? How can you kill one or two but make plea bargains with others and say if you cooperate we will not seek death but allow you to have a life sentence?

Well to change the subject from death and gloom I’ll move onto another issue that is pretty damn amusing to me. Sunday night the Pod officers brought around the toe-nail clippers and since we are not allowed to have these it can be months before we are able to trim our claws and talons! So the officers get our ID cards and issue you a pair of numbered toe-nail clippers and in about 10 minutes they return to your cell and you must give the clippers back to get your ID card back! So as I’m sitting there doing my feet you can hear others doing the same, 14 souls cutting toe-nails sounds like a yard crew trimming bushes and branches. Mine were so long that each time I cut one it was like a projectile! Hell they aught to hand out safety goggles as well! The end result is so damn refreshing! The simple things are missed the most!

Welcome to my nightmare… tales from a dead man

“A real friend is someone who walks in, when everyone else walks out”

It was execution day in Texas yesterday and I’m not sure if the executioner has claimed another, the news has said nothing about if he was murdered or not but I’m almost positive he was. We have another one set for today and the feelings around this place are mixed and you can tell the condemned are now paying close attention to what is happening! I was listening to some guy in our rec cage talk about his visit yesterday and how he was in between two souls from the death watch section with dates for this month. He said it was so very emotional for him and his loved ones because the people on the sides of them were all crying. The family members, kids, moms, all so very innocent, but soon to be victims of a terrible thing and that is what is so wrong about all of this.

They just brought us our breakfast, someone put too much food on my tray. Eggs, biscuits, jelly, oatmeal and apple slices. Yes all the complaints on the way we were being feed has paid off and I thank you all for the needed help! Much obliged, got to go, must eat my scrambled eggs!

Being alive one more day!

Welcome to my nightmare… tales from a dead man!

“Remember, life is littered with seeds of evil, but only the flow of forgiveness can wash away the seeds we struggle to tolerate!”

Good morning to all of you out there, friends and haters alike. It’s a new day on the row and I’m all smiles and not just because I’m alive one more day but because I just received my morning meal of scrambled eggs, biscuits, oatmeal and 3 pear slices. I don’t know what to do now. I’m so damn traumatized that I don’t have “pancakes undercooked” on my tray that I’m not wanting to eat these poor little eggs. See it’s the simplest things in life that are missed the most. When I was a man of freedom I was working in the marble and granite business, cutting slabs of natural marble and granite and I’d be at it 11 to 15 hours a day, 6 days a week, I took life for granted.

So for all of you out there, slow down and enjoy life!

Welcome to my nightmare… tales from a dead man.

“Patriotism does not consist of hatred towards other peoples but of the love of your own!”

The morning is new and the coffee I drink gives me the needed boost to face another hellish day at Texas’s Death Camp USA. It’s a month that holds four execution but there’s so much chaos and child like drama going on amongst the souls back here that the truth of what is really going on is lost in the clouds of stupidity. I have to laugh because what I see go on behind these walls could be made into a really dumb reality show! When I first was on my way to death row 8 years ago I thought “HOLY CRAP” the worst of the worst. And all the past movies I’ve seen come to mind, but to be here and to see all the young kids “loud mouth punks” and the ones who throw human waste like caged monkey’s is enough to make ya laugh.

I want to thank all of you out there who wrote in and called the Unit about mail and food conditions because this past week we have had more meat put on our trays then all year combined and they started back to replacing the missing desserts to our trays twice a week.
