This summer Strathnaver Museum received a generous donation from American author Donald MacKay of some of his extensive collection of short stories, essays and poems. Drawing from a wide range of influences from ancient philosophy and theology Donald’s work explores the all encompassing and age old question of both life and death.
Donald explains “For me, it’s not a case of like or dislike for the stories in my books. My books are not all good nor are they all bad; to me they are like little children searching for something to believe in. Most of the stories arrive in the night from I don’t know where, which is all founded on the documented fact called: The Phenomenon of Inspiration.
In any case, it’s not possible to please every person; I no longer try. I do not write for the money; I do not write to simply entertain; I make no religious demand on anyone. We are all free to choose our way in life. I write because I am compelled and feel obligated to do that solitary act.”
