I have a fondness for praying mantises. They started showing up where my father worked in the early 80’s, and he brought one home. We named her Mandee, and kept her for six months, beyond when she would have lived in cold weather. She was as alien as anything I had ever encountered, and yet so observant and gentle… well, gentle if you weren’t a moth or a fly.
Mantises are a regular sight in our yard now.. and at the end of summer I love spying their egg sacs here and there in secret places. Makes me smile to think I’ll see more of them the following year.
These metal sculptures are exquisite.
Two of my favorite singers from the 80’s, Howard Jones and Nik Kershaw…. together on stage in 2008, singing a fantastic rendition of “Wouldn’t It Be Good”. Do yourself a favor…and have a listen. Talented folks, out there doing what they love. This makes me so happy. ~Aimee~

"I sense the world might be more dreamlike, metaphorical, and poetic than we currently believe—but just as irrational as sympathetic magic when looked at in a typically scientific way. I wouldn’t be surprised if poetry—poetry in the broadest sense, in the sense of a world filled with metaphor, rhyme, and recurring patterns, shapes, and designs—is how the world works. The world isn’t logical, it’s a song. "
