Bat-tree (On waiting)

The hanged man – a bat – waits for his time.

When the world becomes dim,

and the rest fear the night,

the hanged man will set himself free.

“Everything I plan must wait, and

having to wait has made me old, and

the older I get, the more I wait, and everything

I’m waiting for has already been planned”

Downy Inspecting Wood Quality

If you feel weary of things you have to do in life, go out and find a Downy Woodpecker.

You will realize that everyone has some work they must do in life.

And that nobody has time for you.

…for a split second. This kind gesture will fill you with enough joy to last a few days. You can go home marveling at the invisible connection and understanding you have with the rest of existence.

The other birds I saw that day were: Dark-eyed Junco, Red-winged Blackbirds, Goldfinches and three Hooded Mergansers (Mallards and Canada Geese too ofcourse!). 10 minutes walk from home, at my treasure trove.
