One evening last week a huge katydid appeared in my office. Those not familiar with the bug, just know that they are rather beautiful, a brilliant green, very long grasshopper style legs with extremely long antenna. The sounds of summer, the one that has the trees humming when it gets dark is also the work of the Katydid
My friend and author Sheila Glazov has these two books; Animals Speaks and Animal Wise.
I called her and said OK what does it mean? This Katydid in my office, why is it here??
The Book Animal Wise by Ted Andrews said: These animals teach us how to blend and shift our energies, to change how we have been approaching things. We may during this time try doing things a different way. These animals often show up in the beginning of a new endeavor when individuals are initiating new lines of work and creative activities
deep breath here
The katydid was sheparding me into my first writing gig. I couldn’t believe the timing, the uncanny presence of this creature. I has just put effort into my first drafts. I totally loved the excitement I was experiencing as I was writing – I am getting paid to do this!! Yet I was also nervous. Would my clients appreciate my work? They did.
Thank you Mr. Katydid
We had a katydid in our life once before. It was the first day of school in a new neighborhood. I was going through my first divorce, my daughter was elated to be starting kindergarten. My son however was very nervous. On the way we spotted this amazing katydid and brought it to share.
My son was the hit of the playground.
It was desperate frightening time for all of us.
A time we were definitely trying things a different way.
Do you believe my point and shoot captured this shot? Here’s lookin’ at ya sweetheart!
