“Heredity: The problem with the family gene pool is that there is no lifeguard.” “Existentialism: Today the purpose of life is to make oneself happy even if just for the moment or at the expense of others.” It has often been said that people tend to take life too seriously; some of the thoughts in this book will hopefully change that perspective. Taking a slightly lighter approach to the vicissitudes of everyday life can be quite healthy. This little volume is made up of a series of reflections on a variety of subjects derived from a myriad of sources. Not unlike informal “pontifical” musings, these thoughts were collected over several decades while the author was involved in the business of teaching philosophy, doing pastoral work, counselling, and preaching.  
Dr. John W. Friesen, author of several books, both academic and contemporary, now shares his witty, humorous, tongue-in-cheek look at life. In this collection of philosophical meandering to which we can all identify, he’ll have you pondering everything from laptops and elephants on airplanes, to practical governing, and tell-it-like-it-is philosophy.
