LOGAN HALL...ANOTHER DAY

JUST ANOTHER DAY AT LOGAN HALL.....JIMMY SITS AROUND AND READS THE LATIN GRAMMER TEXT I SENT HIM...BRUSHING UP ON HIS LATIN THAT HE LEARNED WHILE IN ST. PETER'S PREP SCHOOL, JERSEY CITY.  HE ALSO CONTINUES TO READ HIS BOOK OF SHAKESPEARE'S PLAYS.

JIMMY ASKED ME TO SEND HIM SOME POETRY, OF FAMOUS POETS....SO LAST NIGHT I FOUND SOME POEMS BY FAMOUS POETS.......SHELLY, BYRON, ELIZABETH BROWNING.....

I WATCHED "THE GOSPEL OF JUDAS," LAST NIGHT ON TV, WHICH WAS ON THE NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL.......AND SO WE DISCUSSED THAT ON THE PHONE........BUT JIMMY KNOWS THIS SUBJECT IS NOT NEW FOR ME, AS I HAVE STUDIED IT SINCE THE 70'S, WHEN THE LOST GOSPELS OF JESUS WAS A SUBJECT OF INTEREST, AND I HAVE READ A LOT ABOUT IT THROUGH THE YEARS, DELVING INTO SOME RARE BOOKS ON THE SUBJECT.....THE DA VINCE CODE IS NOT REALLY NEW AT ALL, BUT MOST OF OUR POPULATION THINKS IT IS...IT HAS BEEN AROUND FOREVER, YOU MAY SAY..........I ALSO ENJOY READING SYLVIA BROWN, WHO IS KNOWN AS A PSYCHIC........I HAVE OVER 10 OF THE BOOKS SHE HAS WRITTEN IN MY LIBRARY,  HERE AT HOME......SHE WRITES A LOT ABOUT THE GNOSTICS, AND THE TENETS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.......LIFE IS SO INTERESTING WHEN YOU READ ABOUT THINGS, AND PIECE IT ALL TOGETHER............THE UNIVERSE....HISTORY...META-PHYSICS....ANCIENT TIMES.....SPIRITUALITY.....MYSTICISM......."TO BE IN THE WORLD, BUT NOT OF IT." ........THAT IS ONE OF THE HIGHEST SPIRITUAL CONCEPTS........AND THAT DEFINES ME.  AND NOT ONLY HAVE I ALWAYS KNOWN IT, BUT PEOPLE HAVE A.LWAYS TOLD ME THIS, INCLUDING MY HUSBAND....HE ALWAYS SAYS. "YOU ARE DIFFERENT THAN OTHERS, FRAN.".....YOU CANNOT MAKE YOURSELF BECOME THIS WAY..YOU JUST ARE THAT WAY...IT IS A GIFT FROM GOD....AN INNER KNOWLEDGE GIVEN TO YOU, AND AN INNER UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD AND THE UNIVERSE........MOST PEOPLE ARE THINKING ABOUT WHAT THEY WILL COOK FOR DINNER TOMORROW, BUT AS FOR ME, MY THOUGHTS ARE ALWAYS VERY LOFTY........AT ANY GIVEN TIME , I AM THINKING ABOUT GOD, AND THE UNIVERSE...NATURE...THE PURPOSE OF PEOPLE........HOW WE GOT HERE, AND WHY........WHERE ARE WE GOING, AS THE HUMAN RACE, AND WHERE IS OUR PLANET GOING.......MANY PEOPLE THINK THAT OUR PLANET WILL BE DESTROYED WITHIN THE NEXT 100 YEARS....EITHER MAN-MADE OR THROUGH NATURAL DISASTERS......AND IF YOU LOOK INTO IT, SCIENTISTS SAY THAT THE POLES OF THE EARTH ARE CURRENTLY SHIFTING, CAUSING THE ELECTROMAGNETIC FIELDS TO SHIFT.......WHICH COULD LEAD TO THE DESTRUCTIONOF THE PLANET EARTH........SEE WHAT I MEAN!  THERE'S SO MANY THINGS TO THINK ABOUT!....IT AMAZES ME THAT WOMEN ARE HAVING BABY AFTER BABY, OUT OF WEDLOCK, ETC.......DON'T THEY EVER STOP AND REALIZE THAT THE PLANET IS OVER-POPULATED AT THIS POINT.  OUR PLANET WAS NEVER MEANT TO HOLD AS MANY PEOPLE AS IT DOES AT THIS TIME......IF IT CONTINUES TO POPULATE AT THE RATE IT IS GOING, THAT ALONE WILL LEAD TO THE DESTRUCTION OF OUR PLANET.....AND I JUST CAN'T IMAGINE WHY SO MANY PRISONER'S WIVES  ARE HAPPY TO SIT HOME PREGNANT, WITH CHILD AFTER CHILD, WITH A HUSBAND OR MAN WHO SITS IN PRISON.....STATISTICALLY, YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE CRIMINALS TOO, HAVING A FATHER WHO SPENDS TIME IN PRISON......IT JUST AMAZES ME.  WOULDN'T IT MAKE MORE SENSE TO WAIT UNTIL YOUR HUSBAND IS OUT OF PRISON, HOPEFULLY REFORMED, TO MAKE A BABY, AND START A FAMILY.......AND THEN ONLY 1 OR 2 CHILDREN...3 THE MOST, DUE TO OUR OVER-POPULATED WORLD..........WITH A HUSBAND IN PRISON, I HAVE PLENTY OF TIME TO THINK ABOUT THINGS..........SEE, AS FOR MYSELF, I WAS JUST NEVER THE TYPE TO SIT HOME AND HAVE 2.2 KIDS, AND A HOUSE WITH A WHITE PICKET FENCE AROUND IT.............I STROVE AND STROVE, FOR THE HIGHEST STAR....AND I STILL DO.  AND I ACCOMPLISHED THINGS IN LIFE THAT PEOPLE ONLY DREAM ABOUT......LIVING IN MANHATTAN, SAN DIEGO, PALM SPRINGS, AND LAS VEGAS.........THINGS LIKE TRAVELLING TO 28 COUNTRIES, SOME 2 AND 3 TIMES EACH..........SPENDING 5 WEEKS IN INDIA, AND LOVING IT THERE!.....ATTENDING GRADUATE SCHOOL IN AN IVY LEAGUE UNIVERSTY, AND NOW A DOCTORAL STUDENT THERE...............ACHIEVEMENT, AND COMPETITION...THAT WAS ALWAYS MY MIDDLE NAME!  (and now, with jimmy in prison, and seeing how the other half lives...well, even that is a lesson for me, and i feel blessed for the expeience...)

JIMMY WISHES THERE WERE MORE CLASSES AT LOGAN  HALL....MOST, OR ALL HAVE BEEN CANCELLED WITHIN THE LAST FEW DAYS.........THE GUYS ARE HAPPY TO SIT AROUND ALL DAY WATCHING SPORTS ON TV.........ONE DAY, FROM THE HANDICAP BATHROOM, WHICH IS 1 ROOM, 4 MEN EMERGED AT THE SAME TIME...ONE CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT THEY WERE DOING IN THERE........

LARRY WILL PICK ME UP AT 4PM TOMORROW TO TAKE ME THERE FOR FAMILY NIGHT........SO, I AM EXCITED TO SEE JIMMY.........

I'LL LET YOU KNOW ALL ABOUT IT!

............................FRAN

People tend to not stop and think about anything anymore... they don't think about what they do or how it affects anyone else... only what effect it may have on them, and then in many cases, not even that.  In today's day and age it is all about "my rights" and not everyone else's.
