What he did not realize that freedom had a price that almost cost his life on more than one occasion. In the Woodpeckers journey from childhood being discontent that he had to live in a hole and with his arrangement of feathers He sought out many different birds. One summer afternoon the young Woodpecker and two Geese that he had became friends with discovered the forbidden fruit of young fowl, the Grape (alcohol). The Grape was the answer to all the fears in the world. The Grape had power and gave him freedom from his mind. After the Woodpeckers first escape from reality He was addicted to Grapes. In his pursuit of what He thought happiness was, like things of this material world, for instance, gold, diamonds, and seed which is money.

Hence, He becomes a "Peckerwood" as well. After getting out of jail the Woodpecker finds himself in a deep and always progressive state of addiction. He resents everything in this vast world and is beyond buzzed. The place where the Grape use to take him, joyous intimacy with friends, grandiose ideas, and freedom was not there. He often proceeded to go beyond boundaries set in the normal society of birds who could partake in the Grape. After the Woodpeckers second trip to see the Grey Parrots (doctors). The Parrots inform him that he has chronic Grapism (alcoholism) and that there is no cure for this disease. Although, there is hope and it is called "Grapes anonymous."

After going through the same spiritual steps the Blackbird went through to recover. He's overcome with God's grace; joy, love, and peace flow within him, He feels unconditional love for the blackbird. He sees love in the very air that gives him life. The Woodpecker became to believe in God, utterly abandons himself to God and discovers himself, whom He always was, a child of God.
