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.
