I WROTE THIS SONG: During the Spring of last year I was in between jobs and I would spend a lot of my time writing and hiking. My favorite place to go was and is Radnor Lake. One day when I was walking around Radnor, a few of the lyrics came to me, so I jotted them down. The next day I took time to actually write it and it all came out very easily. It was peaceful and almost meditative to write this song. And, of course, the music video for “Fragile Forest” was filmed at Radnor as well. Where else?
