European mythology is often associated with gaining knowledge. The English believed the wren to be a bird of both quiet reflection and boisterous song. Villagers witnessed the wren calmly observing one moment then blasting pre-social media tweets the next. Thus the wren symbolized both wisdom and chaos. Quite the mash-up. Usually wisdom comes after our third glass of Pinot...or perhaps that's the chaos. Either way, watch the bird that calmly observes your cheese plate, for bedlam is sure to follow.
