Timothy Velasquez #T34404
I'm a 32-year-old Mexican from L.A. I've been here in the SHU for 2 years and I've been incarcerated for 10. I'm looking to correspond with anyone who's interested in a pen pal. My only expectation is friendship and someone to correspond with until my sentence is up. I'm an open-minded person who enjoys and loves art and drawing. I'm straight forward and easy going. I read a variety of subjects, but mostly fiction. I hope to capture someone's attention to correspond with. I promise a response to all who write and look forward to hearing from anyone who is interesting in receiving my undivided attention. Thank you.
Jaime Vidales #K96986
I am a 33 year old Mexican American with black hair, brown eyes, and a medium build. I was born and raised in San Jose, California. I am currently doing a 6 year sentence with 80% for receiving stolen property. I'm not anything special, but I do have a great big bundle of love and friendship to share. I have a big heart and honesty is the foundation on which I stand. I love any and all education. I would enjoy the company of someone who wouldn't mind corresponding with a man who's made a few mistakes. Someone I could talk and laugh with, someone I could learn from. My letters would be nothing short of the sincere effort to be a good friend.

I am currently housed in the SHU and have been in isolation since Jan. ‘92. I am a 40- year-old Chicano/Mexicano who enjoys writing and drawing as a way of passing my time inside this concrete jungle. Originally I am out of the Southern California area of Wilmington, and I have been inside the system since 1980. Consequently, most of my life has been spent behind these walls. I've held myself together and kept my self respect about me quite well. I'm hoping to reach out beyond these walls and perhaps connect with someone out there who would be willing to communicate with me on a level of mutual learning and growth. I am easy to relate to and open to new ideals and avenues of experience. I maintain my health and sanity quite well in here (despite the odds) and I hope that I can be brought together with anyone who'd be willing to exchange a few interesting moments of time.

Tommy Carrillo Vigil
I am a 37-year-old man of Mexican descent, 5' 10", 180 lbs., brown hair and eyes. I was born and raised in Corona, California. I am interested in corresponding with anyone who has an interest in anything good. I try to stay focused on the positive. Negativity is such a waste of time. I believe that if we do good, good will come to us. I try to practice this in all I do. I like to study and have an interest in just about all subjects. The more knowledge, the better, right? I am currently focused on Meso-American culture, specifically the Aztecs. I hope this brief introduction has caught your attention and sparked an interest. If you are serious about becoming a pen pal, please drop me a line. All letters are welcome.

Greetings! I'm from Oakland, California, the youngest of three children (I have one brother and one sister). My mother passed away in '92 when I was 11 years old. I have a nice relationship with my family. I think out of everybody in my family, I'm closest to my sister cause she only a year older than me. I love reading books. I think they're better than moves cause you get more information. I've read all kinds of books, like Clive Cussler, Eric Jerome Dickey and Terry Hamilton. I also like reading autobiographies like Nathan McCall and Laila Ali. I love all kinds of music (rap, hop-hop, country, jazz, r&b and a little bit of rock). Eeading and music help me escape my environment. I'm a real big sports fan, from football to Nascar. I like to give all things a chance cause you might be missing out on something fun. It also expands your conversations and I love talking to people. I would like to meet somebody that can take my mind to places I've never been. I talk to my father a lot. He's like my role-model cause he's always there when his family needs him. He took me out of California for the first time when I was 16 years old. I guess you can say that's when I wanted experience new things cause it was so different out of California. I hope to hear from you soon.

I am in desperate need of an understanding friend to come into my life. I really do hope you can help. I am 6 feet one, weigh about 170 pounds, and come from Los Angeles. I have a chocolate brown complexion, dark brown eyes, a nice personality and really good sense of humor. I need a friend I can listen to and learn from.
G. E. Washington, #D66489
I'm 36 years old – an honest, caring, fun loving, and a very out- going person. I'm looking to correspond with someone who has integrity, who isn't quick to judge, who understands the true meaning of a friend, who isn't materialistic and can appreciate the simple things in life. So, if that special friend out there isn't afraid to take a chance, then drop me a few lines and let's see if our friendship was meant to be. But either way I want to thank you for taking time out of your day to read my message.
Shaylor Watson #E79573
George Bernard Shaw once said, "When people shake their heads because we are living in a restless age, ask them how they would like to live in a stationary one and do without change." Never have those words been made more clear to me and rung more true than the day I found myself in a world of constant repetition: 221/2 hours a day, 7 days a week. You feed your mind so that you might fight off the madness that you know lingers just beyond the boredom of every man's worst days.
It is this that now makes me seek change, aspire to something greater. Each day I have found that I can correct my flaws, recreate myself so that tomorrow I might be just a little better, a little more wise, and a lot more compassionate.
I love exploration of thought in conversation so, no matter what the subject, I'd be happy, honored and grateful to have a correspondent. I'm just a 28-year-old Irish-American kid, but I'm studying Spanish and can try to write in Español as well. I'm 6'1: with black hair and blue eyes and will be released on 6/18/05.
Micky Welch #K16971
I'm a 32 year old white male with blond hair and green eyes. I stand 5' 8" in height and weigh 175 lbs. I'm healthy and in good shape and I come from southern California. I'm honest, very open minded, loyal, and always respectful. I enjoy good times, good people, and good conversation. I love the sunshine, so I enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities. I like the desert and the beach. My hobbies include motocross, jet skiing, camping, and all sorts of adult pleasures. I'm a high school graduate currently enrolled in college and working on an A.A. degree. Because of my location, things are pretty dreary at times, so I'm looking for some new conversations to brighten up my days. I'm always respectful and will reply to all.
Don White #J74454
I'm a 30-year-old African-American man. I'm looking for a pen pal who wants to get to know me as a person, just as I would want to get to Mk,now them. I want someone who is honest and caring. Everyone is welcome to write, and I will respond to all who do.

I'm hoping someone can read this letter objectively and find that I have said something worth taking a chancing for. If you do, PLEASE pick up your pen and respond while the thoughts are fresh in your mind. I promise you will not regret it.
I write you hoping that the possibility of our developing a friendship through the mails, and establishing something meaningful we can both respect and honor. Communication is the first thing since, without it, there's no hope of friendship developing. It's the first step.
In my present situation, I can't unfold the inner me as I would like to. It is only through open and respectful communication that you can permit me into your reality as I will you into mine. I only hope that my situation does not repel your ability to begin making a connection. Being in prison is not a representation of the person I am but only of the condition I'm in.
Darren C. Williams #D62700
My warmest wishes to those who chose to read my words. I'm incarcerated for a minor offense and now find myself seeking someone to share good conversation, friendship, and if it reaches beyond that, then that's a blessing!
I was raised in Victor Ville, C.A. My hobbies, though I have few, are art, poetry and sports. I also study advanced mathematics and Espanol. My personality is humorous and my character and social style are beyond words! I love and enjoy making people smile, especially in these days when so many wrongs are being done. I don't turn to drugs, or alcohol as solutions to problems.
I'm completely fit as a fiddle. Continuously working out mind and body! So, if you would like to sit down and write me a few lines, please feel free to do so, and I will write back!

I'm 31-years-old and have been in prison since I was twenty. Fortunately my release date is just months away. I am so looking forward to my freedom. With my release just around the corner, I hope to meet some new people and establish a few healthy relationships. I feel like I have so much to give. I'm smart, kind, and I love to laugh. I also enjoy sports, especially football. I like fishing, cooking and even gardening (don't laugh). When I get out of prison, I hope to find work driving trucks or short order cooking. I dream of one day operating my own restaurant and even manufacturing my own brand of snack foods. Prison has taught me a couple of things since I've been here. Patience for one!. Nothing good comes from acting in haste. Also being in prison has showed me that no matter how bad things seem, they could be worse. I use that thought as motivation not let things get me down.

I'm a reborn new-thinking human spirit of African descent. I am writing you as one human being to another, because I find my life struggling to evolve and this is the only way for me to reach out. Honestly, I have no other way of explaining to you what has been going on in my life, but to introduce myself a a ‘free spirit' on a very exciting, soul-enriching, intellect-stimulating journey that transcends these cold, gray concrete walls that have been my reality fore the last twenty-one years of ‘physical' captivity. Fifteen of these years have been spent in extreme isolation at the State's dungeon for warehousing humans indefinitely. All I seek is a genuine friend with an attentive ear, an open mind, an understanding heart, and a freedom-loving spirit. I'll respect and appreciate the opportunity you provide me to look outside at the world, embrace humanity and see nature's beauty through your eyes. And with your agreement, I offer in spirit of reciprocity to open a window on this world and allow you to see its reality: a microcosm of the larger American Society. With that said, I would like to leave you with these thoughts.

Richard Shires Winson
Hi. My friends call me Rick and I'm originally from Stonehorn, Massachussets. Though I'm serving two (consecutive) life sentences, I'm making the best of it. It's all about maintaining a good attitude, and a positive outlook towards life.
I'm interested in long-term correspondences/friendships, with people who are willing to share from their own windows on life. I do appreciate the time anyone takes to write, and although the mail is sometimes very slow, I always answer.
I am an artist, and spend many hours each day on my art work. I enjoy drawing, reading, writing, music and exercise; as well as humor. I miss many of the things that I no longer see or have.
I've learned how to appreciate the fine things in life that I used to take for granted. I would really enjoy hearing from anyone out there who is seeking a true and genuine friendship. Photos would be most welcome, however Polaroids are not allowed.
The qualities that I look for in a friendship are honesty, intelligence and a great sense of humor. Any time you spend with me will be treasured, and any correspondence I receive will surely brighten my day.
And on that note, I will close. If you're interested in getting to know me better, put your pen to paper and introduce yourself. I look forward to meeting you!
Richard S. Winson #C63916
I'm a 35-year-old African American man and I have three children. Yes, I do write my children. Unfortunately I've never been married, but I take great pride in the fact that I'm an important part of my kid's life. Truthfully they keep me alive, and they keep me motivated. I don't have a date on which I can ensure them that I will be home, and that hurts. But they know that I'm working hard on my legal issues. But to balance out my day I read (fictional works mostly), I play chess from time to time, and I'm learning how to draw. I exercise (try to anyway) at least three times a week. I am honest with my feelings so I won't play any childish games. I am looking for a friend to correspond with. Neither age nor race matters. After all, friendships are forged over time.
James Wooten #K51941
I would like to have someone to write to. Maybe I could help you in life and you can do a little of the same for me! I'm 44 years old and I'm from Los Angeles. I have been in prison going on 10 years now. I hope someone out there will take the time to write to me.
Ira Womack #E51504
I am a 28-year-old man out of Fresno CA who's been incarcerated for the last ten years. Over time, one loses contact with the outside world. Kind of like out of sight out of mind. I am interested in corresponding with anyone willing to help this time go by a little easier. I have a lot of dreams and aspirations that I hope to one day accomplish, but due to my situation they sometimes seem to be a lost cause. I know that if I had someone willing to listen to these dreams and aspirations, and help make them a reality, things would start to look up – maybe for both of us.

My friends call me Li’l RB (I’m 5’6” and weight
155 lbs.). For the past nine years I’ve been confined in isolation
– that’s 23 1⁄2 hours a day – serving a life
sentence for first-degree murder. Living under such monotonous conditions,
many of us have to find ways to occupy our time. We watch TV, listen
to the radio, read or workout in an attempt to stay in tip-top physical
and mental shape. One thing everyone doing time has in common: we all
look forward to and enjoy receiving mail from family and friends on
the outside. Seeing the mailman come your way really picks up our spirits
and keeps us connected to our loved ones and the community.
I was born in Tijuana, Mexico, but I've lived most of my life in San Diego, California. I'm 27 years old and stand 5' 7" at 160 lbs. I have brown eyes, hair, skin. I believe in God and His Son.I pass most of my time reading Mexican History, but have and interest in world history also. I like to read philosophy, psychology, and astronomy. I like music, oldies to Beethoven's piano concertos. I like poetry, my favorite being one by William Blake: To see a world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower, hold infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.I also enjoy the art of Luis Royo and Boris Vallejo. I draw a little from time to time, but I'm not very good! I see myself as being very open minded. A person who is loving and light. I like to shine a little light on someone when I can. I'm not mean, bitter, or crazy. I try to live life moderately - I like to be happy. I wake up with a smile and I love to laugh. In short, that's me, Carmelo Zepeda. If you would like to write, know that I will be honest and respectful.
