The Message from the Lovely House Wren
The tiny brown house wren sings most joyfully when nesting near human homes. The little house wren often joins morning yoga practices at Pavones Yoga Center, singing from a favorite perch on the center row of chandeliers. He almost seems to be enjoying the acoustics. When I practice alone, he often hops about on the floor nearby, then lets out the lilting song I know so well.
Announce yourself like this, happily.
Even when so much is uncertain, even if you feel small and brown, sing yourself into a home of belonging.
Sing to announce your place in the world. As the Brazilian saying goes…
“the one who sings wards away evil.”
