I don't really want to do this - talk about my father on demand, I mean. It's not something I feel comfortable doing other than maybe recalling some experience we shared. My parents have their lives - separate lives - for nearly 40 years and who they are and what they do is no business of anybody's but their own. And mine - and my brothers' from time to time... Knowing something about my father isn't going to help anyone understand me - except me, I guess. So what I'll say about him is all in the public domain already; nothing new here...

He's Danish - hence the name. I'm his oldest son and he gave me his name. His work took us to South America when I was two; he ran farms and ranches in Argentina and Venezuela. Living there meant I learned Spanish and I'm grateful for that; languages are important. There he taught me to fish and I'm grateful for that too. And I learned how to ride. He's my father and I love him; what else can I say?

I grew up in the Miramichi and my Dad would let me cuff friday mornings from school to teach me how to fish. Simple things to make life real.
