WELCOME Selected poems and writings of Paul Arnold Borel.

It is the striving beyond reach that gives rhyme and reason to the poem called life. PAB

Mr. Borel writes about his Swiss heritage, family, special occasions, friendships, historical events, service to the U.S. government, and more.

Website built and maintained by Paul Borel's daughter, Julia J. Borel. Updated annotations by her appear occasionally throughout the site, followed by her initials "JJB."

About this Site

I began building this website in July 2006 because Dad wanted a website for his writings but did not know how to build a website. Neither did I! However, I found this Xbuild SiteMaker website builder that actually is quite simple.

I did not use any of the many templates I could have chosen from. Instead I designed a layout and incorporated colors that I thought reflected Dad's taste. He was very pleased when he saw the website, which in turn pleased me very much.

I have enjoyed working on Dad's website. Although I had read his writings before, I read them again as I added them to the site. I think they are quite wonderful and I am very proud of my father.

As I added material, I corrected occasional typos I encountered, but for the most part I have made no other revisions except to add marginal comments providing updated information.

I already have added the writings Dad mentioned to me that he wanted included on the website. However, I intend to add new material as appropriate and to finish editing various sections of the website that I feel could use some revisions.

Dad passed away on July 7, 2007. I am so glad that I basically finished his website during his lifetime and that it was a source of pleasure to him.
