No News Means What

After three separate 15 minutes of talking with Monty, should I be concerned that I haven't had a call in a week? One of the group sent a text message on Thursday morning that she hadn't heard from him either. Granted, he gets a limited number of minutes to use a month, and there are a good number of us on his call list. Still, I think it means as much to us to hear from him as it does for him to hear from us.

I have been sending letters, though. Well, two since he started calling. I would really like to send a letter a week, but I don't know how long that will last. I need to write one for this week anyway, and I do have some news to share.

Still, should we be worried that he hasn't been in touch with at least a couple of us? There's been no e-mail word from any in the group either. Are we all falling into a kind of rut, that even the support we have for each other is falling off?

Maybe it will and maybe it can. I don't think no news is good news, though. I think no news is no news

  1. What I wouldn't give to have a phone conversation with you, to help ease your mind. I don't know if you got my last email, but a month ago started a new job, working admin at a Prison in Oklahoma. Please, if you're worried about prison life or phone calls or commissary and Christmas stuff, please, please email me. Maybe I can help.
