Guitar

My name is Guitar. Listen folks, you can’t have a Nature Folk Movement (NFM) without a guitar by a campfire. That’s just obvious. That’s where Firelight Radio (FLR) comes in. FLR is a podcast where we tune into what the Nature Folk Movement is all about.

Intro - Talking guitar

Host of Firelight Radio and Nature Folk HQ

By Campfire Park

Greetings Fellow Strummers,

My name is Guitar and I know what you’re thinking: “A talking guitar?”

Campfires and guitars go hand in hand

Well, you can’t have a Nature Folk Movement (NFM) without a guitar at a campfire. What exactly is the NFM? It’s where we go about fixing nature one campfire talk, one folk song and one waterside chat at a time. If you think that’s far fetched, don’t forget – you’re talking to a guitar!

Oh, and by the way, I'm also the host of the Firelight Radio podcast.

Greetings from Nature Folk HQ
Boogie and the Nature Folksters battle it out

Howdy folks,

And welcome to Nature Folk HQ.

What exactly is Nature Folk HQ? Well, for one, it’s the place I’m standing, by the campfire, roasting a marshmallow. But more than a place it’s a state of mind where we try not to talk about it (that much), we just do it.

In fact, we believe our action-based approach is the secret to our success. And it’s not just us. Here at Nature Folk HQ we know it takes a community to bring the Nature Folk Movement (NFM) to life.

Our Supporters

Short list of some of our Nature Folksters (i.e. folk stars) and activities we support:

(1) Attend a Campfire Talk (at CampfirePark.Org)

Sick of the rat race? How about kicking back around the campfire to hear a campfire talk. The campfire is the place we gather to reconnect with nature and talk about what is essential in life. We think you’ll enjoy this modern-day reboot of the ancient tradition.

(2) Ride the Water Cycle (at GoHydrology.Org)

There’s no better way to get back in touch with nature than by tuning in with the water cycle. Whether it’s a recent shift in the skies or a new water flow pattern in the deep swamp, Go Hydrology is your passport into the innerworkings of the water cycle.

(3) Hear a Campfire Shanty (at BobbyAngel.Org)

Are you bored of “reading” about conservation topics? Well how about listening to a campfire shanty that explores the topic at a whole new level. Bobby Angel is a balladeer whose growing archive of songs and albums helped inspire the Nature Folk Movement (NFM).

(4) Rediscover your Bookshelf (at ReReadable.Org)

Over a decade after the invention of the smartphone, the bookshelf has been cast away on the dust heap like so much else. No longer. Rereadble resuscitates the old (and new) books on our bookshelf back to life, and ponders out loud what being rereadable is all about.

(5) Journey Back to Before Phones (BP) (at BeforePhones.Org)

Granted, it was a bizarre time, but believe it or not people once survived (even thrived) in the pre-phone era, also known as the Great Phonelessness. Join the researchers at Before Phones as they uncover the latest archeological finds about this cryptic historical period.

(6) Get into Good Penmanshape (at Penmanshape.Org)

Sick of “thumbing” everything you write? And let’s face it, using a keyboard may be writing, true – but it’s also keeping you in front of a screen. There’s no better workout for the hands and the mind than sitting down with a blank piece of paper and a killivine (that’s just a fancy word for a pen!)

Our Adversaries

Short list of groups we do not support

Folks, I cannot impress upon you enough —

Steer clear of the Boogie Phone.

Boogie is bad news! #BewareOfBoogie


Well, thanks once again folks, for tuning in. And until next time, go out there and do something to help spread the Nature Folk Movement (NFM) to a family member or friend.

Yours Truly,

Guitar

Tidbit: The Nature Folk Movement (NFM) started around a campfire in 2014.

Grassroots kindling
And why the bottom is where it's at

Too often …

Decisions are made on the top floor.

Grassroots movements start around the campfire

The result? Good ideas from the middle and the bottom floor get ignored or side stepped. Another thing about Top Floor decision-making: It’s often out of step with what’s happening on the bottom floor, down on the street. And isn’t it always the same thing. Whether it’s Big Water, Big Government, Big Tech or a Mega Corp of any kind calling the shots, it’s the little guy on the outside always looking in, or looking up, trying to figure it out yet also always the one also paying the price. Case in point is the Smart Phone. It was sold to society with little concern what the payoffs may be. Convenience at a price, or fee, with no responsible assessment of what the long-term consequences might be, or what was lost with the giant shift. Okay, good, I’m glad I got that off my chest. That’s where the grassroots Nature Folk Movement (NFM) comes in. I’m not saying we’ll ever get the upper hand. But it’s good to be having a conversation around the campfire. That’s where a lot of good things get their start.

Dear Shareholders
And steering committee

Every year Berkshire and Hathaway …

Gather to talk about their oodles of money.

Firelight Radio is available on Apple Podcasts and Podbean

That’s great, and I don’t mean to condemn.  But where are those same stakeholders and steering committees convening when it comes to preservation of our natural resources?  A recent article in the New York Times on Warren Buffet’s annual meeting inspired me to put together a like-minded soliloquy on the state of affairs all things Nature Folk Inc.  For anyone listening, especially if you’re heavily invested in Berkshire Hathaway, Nature Folk Inc is a 501(c)(3) organization and we welcome any charitable (and tax deductible) contributions you can throw our way.  

P.S. Here’s a quick link to Campfire’s Park Paypal Donate Tip Hat. All proceeds help support our campfires.

Spring drought paradox

There’s no lusher drought …

Than springtime in the Big Cypress Swamp.

Firelight Radio is available on Apple Podcasts and Podbean

This podcast dives deep into the paradox and oxymoron of south Florida’s spring drought, why you should never walk into a gator hole, and when we can expect it to end with the start up of the summer rains.
