I am out




They put another guy in who also began calling for help.

So now there are two guys with dementia side by side.

The first guy decided to go into the hallway, half naked and continued to call for help.

Eventually he was dragged kicking and screaming back to the room.

Dementia in the hallway.

It does feel like everyday is a struggle for survival.

Not only for me but for all the bent tortured souls that inhabit this space.

  1. Hello, Mr. Beckerman… very long time since last corresponded with you, sir, and sorry that I have not…

    what led me to finally write you though, is not wanting you to get yourself in trouble… I currently am working in the health care industry, and your photo above could be a HIPAA violation by identifyingly showing the gentleman… even though you don’t say the poor demented soul’s name, or even where it is that you are currently at (it’s not still The Castle, is it?), still he could be recognized, and could lead you to get into some trouble, and would just hate to see that happen to you… though, if you were to, I am uncertain to what extent you may be… maybe someone visiting you on here, could better detail HIPAA law to you

    Anyway, just saying, may want to just blur a person’s face so they aren’t recognizable.

    Wishing you well, and all the best,


    1. I appreciate your concern. Half or maybe more of my photographs broke some law or other.
      All of my central park shots were against the rules of the park. I lived by my own moral code.
