Hello world.

How are you? No! Really! How are you? I genuinely want to know.

My name is Richard Gamache. I am a 47-48 year old white man on California’s death row. I know there is this perception that those of us in prison are self-centered and only care about themselves, – for the most part that is true. I am so far from that!

I am genuinely interested in meeting people who are interested in building genuine connections and long lasting friendships! In a world of indifference, self-centered, materialistic people who have forgotten HOW to CARE… I never have!

I’m a fairly open-minded guy who is in touch with my feelings and emotions. I do not sugar coat things. I’m unafraid to be myself. I’m direct, but, never disrespectful! I’m kind; caring, honest, witty, REAL funny, understanding, outgoing and loving! AND… I’m a GREAT “Listener.”!!

I love to read and learn. To me both are as important as self-reflection, and inner growth! I believe keeping the mind invigorated and stimulated is oh so important to survival in this place.

I’m looking for… you! Yes… you! Those who are similarly minded, those who are comfortable in their own skin… Those who are willing to broaden my horizons beyond these prison walls (I’ve been “here” since I was 8 years old – on my 1st arrest!) I’m looking for people who will call me on my BS. We can disagree without being disagreeable!

Speak your mind, your heart, your truth! Let’s have a dialogue through the mail. If this is you… then I’m “here”, go ahead and put that pen to paper!

Responses are prompt and certain! I do hope to “hear” from you. Until then… Take good care of you!
