Life After Release-8

Big Springs Park

I love a walk in the Park! My life after release has not been one. That hasn’t deterred me from continuing to pursue a better life. I’ll clarify.

The World refuses to work According to Wayne’s plans but I continue to feel Blessed by the Best and to maintain an Attitude of Gratitude.

Health

A few doctors have complimented me on my overall health condition at my age: I don’t look or feel my age and don’t have to take several medications to function and stay well.

At work I can run circles around most of the other employees when it comes to strength and endurance.

Relationships

Update: September 26, 2021: Since my release I have been cautious about getting involved in relationships. In the last two months I’ve met three top contenders who captivated my attention, with the last one who celebrated her birthday today.

Another lovely lady continues to keep me in the Friend Zone but there have been signs of progress about our relationship moving in a positive direction. We are good friends and that is important but I want more! 🙂

Life Goes On and I am okay with the life I have, though it is not how I imagined it would be before I walked out of the prison gates as a free man.

I am fortunate to be alive and in as good of health as I am to complain about anything that happens in relationships. When and if the time comes for me to be in a serious (or a not-so-serious) relationship with a woman, it will happen and my being more celibate than some priest will end as another junction in life begins.

I am okay either way: A fighter and survivor I am!

Finances

My investment plans went great for a few months but then just as for thousands of others, my account values over recent months have gone downhill; however, I am still in the Green in most areas and am grateful to not have been as impacted by the stock market corrections as severely as thousands of investors and traders.

In the rapid changing and volatile Crypto market, devastating is one word to describe activities over the last few months, with over 500 billion lost within a couple of days at one point.

Fortunate for me, I didn’t have that much to lose and retained most of my funds.

To let people know about some of the things I do as a successfully-reintegrated individual, I wrote about the Trading Apps I Use. Last weekend, over the three previous days I had lost between $450-600.00 in Crypto-Trading, a small sum in comparison to typical traders. By Monday at Noon, I recouped the losses. That’s Crypto, up and down, with some swings as drastic as 25-75%.

A few weeks ago I went to a birthday party and swam in a pool alone after the children went back inside with the adults. It was nice having the privilege to get some sun and enjoy being alive and well after all these years.

In the meantime, I will continue to do my normal things to avoid becoming a recidivist, going to Twelve Step meetings to share my experience, strength and hope, remembering where I came from and where I can return if I decide to return to old behaviors.

Though overworked and underpaid by my employer; I remain grateful for my job because it helps to keep me healthy and provides an opportunity for me to meet a lot of lovely ladies I would not otherwise see. One of whom may just be my next wife, whether she drives a Mercedes or not. 🙂

Movie Money by Wayne T. Dowdy

For Motion Picture Purposes

For entertainment purposes, I am posting this blog in response to my release-date anniversary from decades spent inside the United States Federal Bureau of Prisons (08/18/1988-08/28/2018).

As I carve my way into a bright future, I continue to think of ways to generate funds for survival and to pass along to others when my time expires in this thing we know as life.


Making movies come to mind, writing or having a screenplay written from my books, since numerous people who read UNKNOWN INNOCENCE, UNDER PRESSURE by Mr. D., and ESSAYS & MORE STRAIGHT FROM THE PEN have commented that their content is what movies are made from, which is true.



And then I find this old draft with the Movie Money photo and decide to use this as an opportunity to promote my books with the hope that someone with connections into the movie industry will pick one up to make a few million. 🙂





Story Behind the Movie Money

Sunshine illuminated the path as I walked down a street in McDonough, Georgia, on August 28, 2019, one year after I had walked out of the prison gates to begin my new life.

One day while shopping with a sister at a Walmart and in need of money, I found a one hundred dollar bill. That was a couple of months before the bright and sunshiny day upon which I strolled along, pleasant as a peacock.

When I looked down and saw another one hundred-dollar bill laying on the ground, I thought, This is My Lucky Day! I couldn’t believe I had been so lucky to have found, not one, but two one hundred dollar bills within a matter of months.

The bill looked faded but I decided that was because it had laid in the sun too long, unlike me, whom would have turned red instead of whiter.

When I saw the written words on the bill, “For Motion Picture Purposes,” I thought, Tyler Perry and Madea were here again.

Maybe the money had floated around town since the 2013 making of A Madea Christmas, or from some other filming, but I do wish it had been a real one hundred dollar bill that I could have used.


THE END ONCE AGAIN or IS THIS WHERE THE STORY BEGINS?

COVID-19 CLAIMS

No dispute on whether the COVID-19 virus kills people. It does. However, every illness is not due to COVID-19 but many deaths attributed to COVID-19 are false information.

The man in the embedded video at the end of this post states a lot of what I have heard from others who work in the medical field about the fraudulent COVID-19 claims, how most illnesses are quickly changed from the original complaint to COVID-19.

Shortly after receiving the first or second Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, a total of 32 people died at the facility where this man works.

In my unprofessional opinion, whether a person contracts COVID-19 depends more on genes (DNA) and the person’s immune system. The basis behind my conclusion revolves around three of my family members households and COVID-19.

In group one, the wife worked in a nursing home where several patients died from COVID-19. She contracted COVID-19. She slept in the same bed with her husband, who would be considered High-risk. He did not contract COVID-19.

In group two, a high-risk elderly person lived in the same house and was cared for by relatives and a nurse who came in periodically. The younger, less-risk-caretakers/relatives contracted COVID-19. The High-risk elderly family member did not contract COVID-19.

In Group Three, two children contracted COVID-19. One of the parents fell into the High-risk category. Neither he nor his wife contracted COVID-19.

What are the variables in each of the above examples? Different DNA and gene pools.

09/13/2021, Update: after posting this blog someone on Facebook sent a link that supports my claim about DNA and COVID-19. The idea that COVID-19, AIDS, and the EBOLA viruses were created in a lab as biological warfare is something I have always believed; especially, with AIDS, where in one study, most Rhesus monkeys became infected after the first injection of HIV, whereas some took up to twenty injections of the same strain before testing positive. What was the variable: DNA.

Watch this video:



Fortunately, none of my relatives died from COVID-19. I am sorry to report that several people infected with the same strain of COVID-19 did die, whether from a COVID-19 case or underlying health condition reported as COVID-19.


PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN and COVID-19 Vaccination Mandate for Employers to Force on Employees.

Now President Joe Biden effectively created mass controversies in a recent plan to force businesses with over 100-employees to require that the employees receive a COVID-19 vaccination or to be tested weekly. Companies will be fined for non-compliance. Click Here to read Joe Biden Faces an Avalanche of Vaccine Mandate Lawsuits.

In my unprofessional opinion, the flaw in his plan is evident in that even people who have been vaccinated are still contracting COVID-19. However, the vaccine may reduce the risk of death from COVID-19. BUT what about those who die after taking the vaccine?

I wonder if President Joe Biden owns stock in the companies producing the vaccines or ingredients needed to produce COVID-19 vaccines? Whether he does or does not is irrelevant to me because I am going to be one of the rebels who refuses to be vaccinated or to be tested each week.

That is because I believe that if it is meant or not meant for me to become infected with COVID-19 is what will happen, regardless of what I do or do not do. That’s just my spiritual belief. God is in control of my life, period! Otherwise, I would not have survived my youth. I should have died decades ago. Read Essays & More Straight from the Pen by Wayne T. Dowdy and you will probably agree.

CONCLUSION

In the meantime, no vaccine for me but that is not to say that others should do as I chose. If a person will feel safer taking the jab, then that is what he or she should do. I jabbed myself enough and refuse to be a Guinea Pig.

A publication I used to read (Best Pills Worst Pills) suggested waiting for a new drug to be on the market five years before taking. I recall that it was because it may take that long for the severe side-effects to manifest, and am applying the same standard to vaccines. Either way, though, I do hope that vaccines are effective and prevent more people from dying.
