A visitor from a few days ago.

The downy woodpecker looks for food in old deadwood, while Christians look for spiritual food from the wood of the Cross.


'That great saint, St. Charles Borromeo, had in his apartment a fine cardinal's bed, which everybody saw; but, besides that, there was one which nobody could see, made of bundles of wood; and that was the one he made use of. He never warmed himself; when people came to see him, they remarked that he placed himself so as not to feel the fire. That is what the saints were like. They lived for heaven and not for earth: they were all heavenly; and as for us, we are all earthly.'

St. Jean Marie Baptiste Vianney, the Cure of Ars

The little bird visits here a lot, because of all the fallen old trees. I was able to stand in the little woods and take photos without him flying away as birds often do when there's a person walking around.

It is nice to see some birds when it is this cold here and so many have departed for the warm south.
