My Life INCLUDING Prison

Do you ever wonder what it would be like working inside a Prison? I was married with eight children when I got a caseworker job in the prison. On my first caseload was a man who claimed he was innocent of the crimes he was convicted of. I tried to help him, but didn’t know how. This wasn’t in Policy. Then I found myself locked in a cell with a male inmate.

There were plenty of other inmates, all with their own problems. The guards told them, “Go ask the caseworker.” Then at home I had a divorce to deal with along with the children to care for.

Somatosensory Science Facts

Tactile sensations are well studied, and much is known about this sensory system. The complexity is difficult to learn because of the breadth of information available. The approach of this book was to inform interested readers about this system through questions and answers. For instance, understanding the science causing people not to be able to tickle themselves is insightful. There are approximately 200 questions and answers for the reader to think about on their own pace. Questions include a thorough description of Sensory Systems, Sensory Receptors, Cognitive and Cortical processing, Stimuli (pain, heat, pleasure, etc.), Meditation and brain Waves, Social Behavior, and much more.

Social Consiousness Pedagogy

The book is a form of translation research whereby the Author translated information known to the scientific community as pier reviewed publication, into laymen’s language. The book elucidates concepts of reality, Theory of Mind, parenting children and adolescents, talks about Mind Money® and how this can encourage communication between commercial globalizers (i.e., people who focus on making money from goods and services) and the social globalizers (i.e., a group who’s focus is on quality of life). Novel concepts about help addiction and abused women are presented in laymen’s language. The well-known spiritual/religious serenity prayer

      God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change . . .

Has been humanized into a human Social Wisdom (hSW) statement (not a prayer)

      Mind, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change . . .

A novel concept about a person’s personal reality resulted in creating the word preality, which means personal reality. The book was written for curious minds.


Our stories, yours and mine, are more than quirky happenings; each of us has been in the mind of God and his designs for all eternity. We each have, upon our souls, some aspect of the divine. However, we have, each one of us, besmirched that image from its original beauty. Our Creator, in his infinite love, places in our lives (in a way unique to each one of us) challenges, sufferings, and disappointments. When we acknowledge these events as coming from the loving hand of God, accept and embrace them, we allow God to make of us-a new creation. The Divine image in each one of us is made more beautiful by our cooperation with the work of God in our lives.

Lost in Time

My love for adventure started early. As a kid in Montana, I climbed the tallest trees, scaled the highest mountains. I scorned those who stayed on the paths, which was something I never did. If there was a challenging, dangerous way to get somewhere, I took it.

I wasn’t doing all this to show off. The act of jumping, soaring, or balancing gave me a feeling of freedom and exhileration that was addictive.

The call of the wild was always at my doorstep. The summer after high school graduation, some friends and I nearly pulled off a move to the forrest where we planned to build a cabin and live off the land.

Even as a married man with three children, I did things like walk across the top of swingsets. One experience in southern Utah finally taught me something about wisdom.

I shinnied up a 100 foot crevas between two rock walls. My dad, who should have known better, was right behind me. At the top, one wall gradually levelled off. I could see a hand hold, but I couldn’t reach it. I would have to leap and hope my right hand could get a grip on it.

Throwing caution to the wind, I sprang upward and laterally at the same time. Clutching onto the hand hold, I pulled my body up. My dad, seeing that he couldn’t go any further, scooted back down, and had to drive several miles around the rim to rescue me.

After this event where I risked my life in front of my wife and kids, I began drawing a line between adventure and fool hardiness.

I’m now a few years from reaching the end of my career as a registered nurse, but the thrill of high drama still burns within me. The only difference is that it now flows through the end of my pen.

If you’ve ever dreamed of going back in time to change your personal life or some historical event, then you have captured the essence of this book (at no actual physical danger to yourself). If the real event happened, you would do whatever was necessary in order to reach your goal. That would be a great responsibility, but it would also provide for great adventure.
