In Which My Inhumanity Is Validated by a Bird

Today a wren landed on my head.  Instead of flying away, it stayed and sang a song.

Then it moved down to my braid and sang another  song. 

Finally it flew to a nearby branch and sang some more.

Understand, I haven't spent weeks scattering birdseed and trying to coax birds within reach.  I was just walking out to plant some morning glories by the telephone pole.  Apparently I am so much a part of the world, or still so Entish, that to a wren I seem like a bush.


I can't make this shit up.  Nobody would believe me.
