About this title


We all have been told that "Our Eyes are the Windows of our Soul" I have tried to recall events in my life and tell all I could remember in this book. First I investigated where we came from and found in the Bible, that God was not happy with all people from Noah's family at the "Tower of Babel" So God said, "Come, let us go down and confound their speech" And so God scattered them upon the face of the Earth, and confused their languages, and they left off building the city, which was called Babel "because God there confounded the language of all the Earth" (Genesis 11:5-8). Some scientists believe that only part of the world flooded, I am sure now that all of the earth flooded as we know "All things are possible with God". I wondered all my life how all the different races, languages, colors of people came to be and never really gave it much thought until I read the above information in the bible. Being of Irish decent, I have no idea where the Irish came from, much like so many of us. So in the year of 2012, after reading more of Genesis, I found it is 6,140 years ago God made Adam. I tried to remember events that happened by year or groups of years to come up with the events in my life and my families lives from 1932 - 2012. I am sure anyone could do the same with a little effort. Joseph W. Boland

About the Author:

The books title is "Reflections of My Soul", so it is about my life and what I have seen and done over the past 80 years, so I think that should qualify me to write this book. I was born in Elkader, Iowa in January, 1932 and spent the first 11 years living on a small acreage during the Depression in the early 30's. Our family's life would be classified by today's standards as living in poverty. We moved to town in 1943 where we had plumbing, electricity, water in our faucets & a bathroom in place of an outhouse. I went to a Catholic school until I graduated in 1950, then two years of Catholic College. Work and funds kept me from going back to college and I was classified as "4-F" for military service. Went to work at a Meat Packing House for 10 months then on to Collins Radio in Cedar Rapids Iowa to work & learned the "EAM" (Electric Accounting Machines) as a trade. I met my wife Patti & we got married in November, 1954. Moved to St Paul, Minnesota went to work for "3M Company" for 13 years. During this time my wife and I adopted a 3-1/2 year daughter and a year later a 3-1/2 year old boy, both were mixed race. Went to work for Bemis Company, Inc. in Minneapolis in 1967, built a new home in 1969, and raised our children. Our daughter married in 1985 and had 4 children. Our son never married but had a son who grew up with his mother in California. Our son was an alcoholic and still is to this day; also his son is an alcoholic & had adopted one daughter and had another of his own but left his wife in 1999. I retired in 1995 and my wife and I moved to Ft. Myers Beach, Florida in 2000 for 11 years. My wife became quite ill with scared lungs in 2008 and we moved back to Minnesota in 2011 and she died from not being able to breathe on 08-13-2011. I moved from the care center we lived in 7 months and purchased a condo in Maplewood, Minnesota and that is where I reside. During our lifetime both my wife and I did a lot of
