A part of my Notes from the Inside post series, this interpretation of my Without a Net card is by prisoner Curtis Henderson. His take on my piece isn’t far from my original intention. Thank you to Kerry Madden-Lunsford, who brought my cards to Donaldson, a maximum security prison in Alabama. I added some comas.

The Night Bird by Curtis Henderson

The Night Bird of Egypt is very universal and protective of all the young children. Night or day, any religion, the motherly love is tough against any trespasser, and has the touch to calm any child. Iron or steel, you cannot defeat her will. So, always chill.
