A moment of Grace....


This morning...on our deck.....the body of a beautiful woodpecker....his spirit gone to higher flight.   The one word that came to mind....Grace.






































I asked my husband to bury her gently.....and then...no...I couldn't put that beauty underground.
So...she now lies carefully placed in a plastic bag in my freezer. 
 Someday to become part of artwork.
Ahhh....the minds and actions of an artist's heart are strange indeed.

Wow, that is so beautiful. I've never seen a woodpecker for real. If it's any consolation there's been a deceased dragon fly on my desk for a year now. I just moved him to decorate and put him back in place :o)

And while I was gazing upon the beauty of the woodpecker my mind thought softly to itself "if I found that beautiful bird I would save it to use later and share his beauty again". And so you did!

how wild and inspiring to find it still so beautiful just after its life moved on ... I believe it passed there as a GIFT for you & it's obvious that you recognized that gift. I look forward to the day it is transformed once again.
