As I sit in my prison cell looking at this picture

As I sit in my prison cell looking at this picture a friend sent me years ago, I recall all the sandy beaches I used to visit on vacations with my friends & family. Even though I will not ever go to this beach, as its Johannesburg, South Africa; I wish I could, and do because my friend from Virginia has told me all about it in her letters.
These are the vacations I now take, that even though are through others, I can let my self go (almost) there too!
I hope others realize what they sacrifice when they come to prison. Not only do they lose the love of family & friends, but food they enjoy, (vacations) they take, clothes they can buy, and interacting with healthy people.
Stay out of prisons!
