The Writings of a Lifetime

by Mack W. Borgen (April 2021)
Brody & Schmitt Publishers

These writings, stories and poems have been written over the course of the author’s lifetime, and they cover a wide range of subjects — love, happiness, loneliness, ethics, decency, history, patriotism, and even travel.

They are here collected and offered to lift our spirits, make us laugh, and attempt to explain and gently ease the tensions of Modern America as it exists today – our competitive, diverse era dominated by technology, globalism, war, and terrorism as complicated by our conflicting perceptions of the roles of ethics, government, families, and even religion.

Some of these writings are humorous. Some are deeply personal. Some are serious, but most – just like life – lie in between. The use of humor is partly a mere matter of style. But it also used because the author believes that sometimes it is hard to learn from the thick and heavy books of science, philosophy, politics, and history. There certainly is a time for the picky details of experts and the pushy words of pundits, commentators, and scholars — but not always. And especially not now. Not today.
