AKA – I received a letter from our favorite jaildino.
Here is a snippet I wanted to share with all of you:
“Thank you … for the RawrLove book. You can let everyone know it arrived safely and is absolutely beautiful. I’ve lent it to a few fellow inmates to (carefully) read and they have all been inspired by the kindness and community. I sense a whole new wave of jailbird bloggers. =) The book itself made me cry and miss you all very much – but happy tears, fueled by warm reminiscence. Brandy, my bunkie, commented on how loved I must be, and I let her know that you guys have that much love in your hears for everyone. I am proud to have been part of such a cozy family.
Truth is, I don’t know what to say in the face of such generosity and support. Just … love. Love to you all.”
I’d never received a letter from jail before. It had a lovely red stamp on the front that says “ORANGE COUNTY JAIL INMATE CORRESPONDENCE.” In case the booking number in the return address section wasn’t obvious enough…
I hadn’t ever sent a letter or a book to jail before either.
It’s been a couple weeks full of firsts.
Keep your eyes open for a game we are going to play shortly involving firsts, in a way, that was inspired by something else in the letter from Rara.
