I Feel Pretty

I feel pretty,
Oh, so pretty,
I feel pretty and witty and bright!
And I pity
Any girl who isn’t me tonight.

Praying Mantis

I feel charming,
Oh, so charming
It’s alarming how charming I feel!
And so pretty
That I hardly can believe I’m real.

Praying Mantis

See the pretty girl in that mirror there:
Who can that attractive girl be?
Such a pretty face,
Such a pretty dress,
Such a pretty smile,
Such a pretty me!

Praying Mantis

I feel stunning
And entrancing,
Feel like running and dancing for joy,
For I’m loved
By a pretty wonderful boy!
(Whose head I ripped off.)

Praying Mantis

Music by Leonard Bernstein, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.

The Bees and the Flowers

Every day on my way to work I drive by a house near downtown Albuquerque that has a wonderful flower garden in the front yard. I have stopped at the house several times to take photos. The owners of the house either have not been home, or they do not mind my photographing their flowers.
