GUEST,Richard Flor Lyr Add: Life of a Voyageur/Voyager (56* d) RE: Lyr Add: Life of a Voyageur/Voyager 19 Jan 12


Hello,

I too learned this song during my days at Manito-wish...and sing it to my two young children when we're canoing, at bedtime, hoping that some day they too can experience Manito-wish, or even more, that we get to visit Quetico some day and I can show them some of my old haunts from days working there as an Outward Bound instructor, and the numerous personal trips I've taken.

The song has a mysterious melody and haunting rhythm, which curiously resonates with me--hair on the back of my neck is standing up right now as I right this while this memory comes back to me--of hearing the "singing wilderness" up on Montgomery Lake after we had hiked into a canyon to see some newly discovered petroglyphs of what were thought to be caribou or elk (definitely NOT deer or moose!).

Magical...though I know the song, intimately, does anyone know if the score has been written?

May the wind always be in your favor!

Richard Flor
