I enter the state hospital for the criminally insane (the current terminology is forensic facility).  This is the first day of my social work internship in 1984.  I chose this internship because it was the only paid one and it was edgier than the other options.

My supervisor meets me at the main entrance to the facility which is the only way for the staff to get in and out.  She escorts me through a large sliding security door controlled by security personnel.  Once through, the door closes behind me and there’s another closed security door in front of me.  It is dark for a moment then a bluish light comes on.  Security guards, in an adjacent control room, look me and the other people over before letting us proceed. Lastly, the door into the institution opens.  The next step is submitting an institutional I.D. to get keys for the internal doors.  Keys must be returned each time one leaves the facility.

The first thing my supervisor tells me is to always walk down the center of the halls.  There are doors on either side of the halls, which open out, and if there is a call for help people come flying out of those doors to render assistance.  The calls deal with patients being aggressive so if you are next to one of those heavy, wooden doors you will get slammed.

My orientation continues as my supervisor escorts me through the program where I will work. The program has three units with about 30 to 50 patients each. The patients are a collection of murderers, assaulters, and sex offenders.  Two of the units are for the more aggressive patients. Patients have a general area, where they can congregate, along with dorms, bathrooms and bathing areas. There is a cage like structure on each unit where the staff tend to congregate. There are also offices for advanced degreed staff like psychologists and social workers along with administrative and supervisory staff.  

I am informed that there is no office for me at this time.  The plan is for me to share an office with one of the Unit Supervisors.  My supervisor points the office out to me and I enter.  The office is long and narrow with two desks facing a bleak wall.  I say, “hello” as I enter.  The Supervisor does not look up or acknowledge me. I sit at the empty desk closest to the door and organize my work area.  I have an inner feeling, or sense, that prompts me to turn my head to the right and look at the Supervisor.  He is glaring at me and says, “We don’t like social workers ’round here”

  2. Choose what you want to achieve.
  3. Select a word or phrase that embodies your goal.
  4. Focus on the meaning of your goal.

New Life

Drum less tribes rule the land

Masters revel in gore

Foul oceans churn

Putrid air full of nasty surprises

Microscopic winged beasts on the prowl

Tribal leaders plot and scheme

Humanity is scarce

Techno marvels consume the wretched

Spewing alchemist gold

Melted wax takes new forms

Neuro genetic enhanced life comes to be


Your babies are our business

True Nature

We are conditioned/programed by our respective biology, parents, peers, culture, society, religion/spirituality or atheism, and physical environment.  All can fall away for a moment like leaves on a tree revealing true nature. True nature can be experienced through various methods such as mind/body practices, psychedelic substances, or spontaneously (roll of the cosmic dice) and other impactful experiences. 

The true self samba is an extraordinary experience.  Harmonizing true self with regular self is an ongoing challenge.  One day A.I. may come to this cross road.  Perfection in chaos is the tuning fork of existence.
