Another Virgin Mary
I know, the image quality is less than ideal, but here is another Virgin Mary. Like most sightings of Mary, Her presence is more an issue of shape. This one was found in Albuquerque, New Mexico, last week on Good Friday. Leo Korte and a friend were cutting a cherry tree when they discovered the Virgin's likeness in the wood's rings. The form became even more clear after they rubbed the wood with oil. The following day, the cherry tree blossomed.
It's hard to think too much about spring blooms here in New York today, where's it's cold and wet.
