Stephan Alexander Scharnberg in May 1963

Stephan Alexander Scharnberg at home in Lake Cowichan, Vancouver Island, B.C., Canada in May 1963

Father planted me a birth tree, a Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), in the front yard of our converted bunkhouse on Neva Road. It is still standing to this day at over 60 feet tall.

There are not too many photographs of me smiling. I was usually a serious child.

In summer 1965, we moved to March Road in Honeymoon Bay, a few houses from what is now the Gordon Bay Provincial Park gate. We moved to Duncan in April 1966, by which time I had a brother, Felix Hayo Scharnberg, and a sister, Anya Maureen Scharnberg.

Funny how our childhood facial expressions don't change with age.
