The Elements of a Perfect Adventure

What are the ways of love into blossoming successfully?

“Lifting the Fog” is a fictional story of two frustrated students after two years of staying at a Canadian university. Uncertain of the future, guts become their compass and they travel to European countries. As moments in Europe are filled with excitement, frustration blossomed into romance, new-founded philosophy, and a new thinking at the Goetheanum in Dornach.

About the Author
With four brothers and two sisters, Siegfried grew up in a small village south of Hamburg, Germany. Their outdoor activities and explorations of the beautiful surrounding forest, ponds, and meadows was supervised by a maid playing the guitar. Their mother died shortly before World War II when Siegfried was nine years old.

The war years left memories of violence, devastation, and death, but also many encouragements like “diamonds everywhere.” With an urge to see the world, Siegfried and two brothers sailed to Canada in 1951 for a two-year adventure, not realizing they may not come back in that time frame. Their travels led them to Calgary at the time of the Calgary Stampede. At a dance, Siegfried met Ursula and her twin, Brigitte. Ursula was a beautiful dancer and instructor at the Arthur Murray School of Dance. While dancing, she sang along with the band. Siegfried was in awe. He forgot all about returning to Germany as planned.

They got married in 1955, settled down in Calgary, and later followed a dream to move to Bragg Creek in the foothills west of Calgary. Brigitte married Siegfried’s brother, Herbert. The Beckedorf Twins entertained with guitar and song at many festivities in Calgary and in the Bragg Creek area. While Ursula participated substantially in building an artistic and resourceful community in Bragg Creek, Siegfried got involved in land development and international business. Ursula and Siegfried traveled frequently. The highlight was a flight to Namibia, Southwest Africa, the twins’ place of birth.

The couple celebrated their sixtieth wedding anniversary, and the fiftieth anniversary of their having been residents of the Bragg Creek area, in 2015. A life of song and music came to an end when Ursula died in their home in September 2015.
