Is songwriting for the birds?

Singer-songwriter Vickie Maris with her Alvarez guitarOutdoors - it's a great location for songwriting.

I’m fascinated with how the birds join in when I’m trying out a new melody.

If I stop mid-phrase to re-sing a line or to change a word, or to try another key, the birds pause their singing and then re-start when I re-start. It’s as if their bliss in making sound stems from collaboration with another being who is making sound.

Bliss is a word I use to describe playing music with the band. It's also a feeling that goes along with being in the company of birds, and being out in nature while songwriting.
