Hiding in plain sight.

October 18th, 2013, 5pm

It was 11.7°C with few clouds. There was moderate breeze.

My friend and I spotted this little guy (‘Mantis) crossing the sidewalk during our coffee break. ‘Mantis was standing proudly right in the middle of the walk as thundering giants passed by without a sidelong glance. We feared the throngs of feet might undermine ‘Mantis’s livelihood. I entreated ‘Mantis to move into the grassy bushes by the side of the way with my shadow. As we two giants, newly enlightened by the scope of the world departed, it appeared ‘Mantis send a prayer with us on our way.

Adrian and Lia said thanks.
