Series: Can a Song Connect You With Home? Today: The Wailin’ Jennys

Do You Have A Special Song?

“What song makes you think of home? It doesn’t have to literally be about home. Just a song that somehow embodies the concept for you, or makes you feel at home in some way”.

In this series, I am asking the above question. The idea of home is complex, and there are many ways to define it, and connect with it.  Sometimes, a certain song expresses this connection  for us.

Today, I want to share one of several songs that does this for me. The lyrics of this melody describe how I see the world at my best moments; when I am authentic and at home with who I am.  It also expresses a connection and oneness with nature – the change of the seasons and the beauty of life – that feel like home to me.

As the poet Gary Snyder said, “Nature is not a place to visit. It is home. ”

Here it is:

The Bird Song, by the remarkably talented Wailin’ Jennys.


Thanks for visiting and I can’t wait to share my next post with you!

If there is a song that answers the above question for you, leave a comment with the name of the song and I will see if I can include it in a future post!
