Riverside Angel?
Or is the campfire actually canal side

Have you ever set off for a place …

Only to later discover you never arrived?


Firelight Radio is available on Apple Podcasts and Podbean

Such was the case with Bobby Angel at this campfire podcast. He thought he was setting up camp at the Barron River only to find out, or start to develop a hunch, that he was actually along the banks of the modern-day canal. Not that it stopped the singer/songwriter from having a quality campfire. His 2-song set includes (1) One More Melaleuca for the Road and (2) David Moody Blues, plus campfire deep dive into the history and many mysteries of the road, the river, the old railroad grade and the canal.

Halfway hero
When just short is the preferred path

Forget about getting there …

The better approach is enjoying the ride.

We always say that, but is it always enjoyable to enjoy the ride. Humans are dogged with a desire to get things done. Yes, we all enjoy to relax, but sometimes the only path to relaxation is to get lost in the midstream of doing something that you sort of like, but also allows you to get lost. So don’t be afraid, and don’t worry about getting washed away downstream. Eventually you’ll find where you’ll supposed to be. And just as quickly afterwards you’ll be on your way. Hail to all the unknown adventures that lies ahead!

In the eye of the beholder

Don’t be too quick to judge …

That’s what the animals will tell you.

Stay on to listen to the interview after the song

Just because a forest has the wrong types of trees, or isn’t quite big enough to fit a hiking trail, don’t let that lead you into thinking it doesn’t have any worth. Every piece of open space counts. Just ask the mice, the squirrels and the rabbits and such. The birds, too. Those little patches of woods at the outskirts of town. We tend to ignore them until the bulldozers move in, and then all of a sudden we realize: “Wow, I’m gonna miss those trees.” Every tree, every plant and every animal is special in its own way. This song by Bobby Angel reminds us of that.

Oh, and about Firelight Radio — It’s hosted by a guitar. If you think that’s a bit unusual, think about it: You can’t have a Nature Folk Movement (NFM) without a guitar by a campfire. That’s what Firelight Radio is all about.
