Brava Kathleen. Certainly NOT a guy thing and Rob, I'm surprised that you would even consider it so. If one is inspired by the details-the colors and patterns and textures of life, than a construction site can be as beautiful as the finished architecture. Ever study the turquoise steel used to build 580?

NOT a guy thing. We may have gotten Barbie or Chatty Kathy instead of Erector Sets, Tinkertoys and Leggos. But there were the Etch-a-Sketch and Spirograph to initiate us to pattern and rythmn.

As for fascination with raw materials and the romance of building things, making something, or creating, these have transcended gender lines in my experience.

And lastly, I would like to point out that some of us girls even grew up to be hardware queens (there is a story there)!

It would be terrific to hear from other women on this topic.
