Example text

Turns out Nils Jorgensen would be my bunk mate at the backpacker’s hostel I was booked into. We became very good friends, and this just tells me that you can’t really judge a book (or a Norwegian) by its cover, so to speak. Our journey together was very interesting because I don’t normally like to travel with anyone, and I ended up doing things in groups because of him. Our first excursion would take us trekking five days through the mountains with three other people. We were treated to marvelously scenic panoramic views of the mountain tops and the mountain plateaus, but the leaches were what amazed me; they were everywhere.

What’s that about? It’s about how individuals perceive themselves, and, if all they know is what has been always a part of their lives, you can’t deny them the fact that they are using this word with respect. In my opinion, this transcends any “politically correct” statement that may be in fashion. A word is a word; so let’s use it respectfully, with understanding, and let’s get on with our lives. All there needs to be is an understanding of one person and then respecting that person for who they are—whether they are from the engines of the politically correct mainstream or from an isolated cylinder of society that time forgets.

My brother Roland was always there. We played together as kids and partied together as young adults. We never really had any heavy discussions on what the world was about, but we had a bond that started in the first days of our lives. That bond still exists, even though he is no longer one with 20 this world. I can remember times when we would go fishing along the Athabasca River all day long, when we would go bird hunting with our newly made sling shots, when we would go into the back woods and build tree forts, when we would build rafts for the huge ponds that formed in the springtime and when we would search through the piles of junk that my father collected.
