A cool comment from a reader that I wanted to share with you: Fra Angelico's bird could also be a barn swallow, a reference to Psalm 84. This seems like the most promising guess yet.

I love the prayer you posted at the end. It brought me back to the texts my grandmother sent almost daily until two weeks before she died, always highlighting a verse, prayer, or quote from a book, ancient or modern.

I need more kairos in my life. Thank you for this thoughtful newsletter; I look forward to your next one.
