The miracle of socks that match


I stand on the red bricks and see the dying leaves. It is winter and this is the only time of the year when I wear socks. I hate socks. Did you ever notice that Olympic runners have buckets of shoes, one size, but all different colors? They reach in and pull out one shoe at a time. It does not matter it they are different colors. That is how it is for me with socks. I put all different combinations of patterned and colored socks together. Today is a miracle, because from all of the possibilities, I happen to be wearing a matching pair.


A beautiful tapestry hangs in the little hall at the entrance to our living room. It has a wonderful texture to it. It is made of little round sequences and glass beads. Other things hang there that are fun to see. This brings a sense of mystery and ancient stories into our home. I like this. It gets one to thinking and dreaming.

Welcome to Hudley Flipside’s “The Seminary Of Praying Mantis Publishing.” Praying mantis shows me her story of life, death, and rebirth. For me she is an image or symbol of the divine in all things. I watch the praying mantis in my garden and have taken her image as my logo. She is an amazing little creature, and I relate to her connection to nature. We are both wild and part of this strange world. She is a part of my mythology as I am part of hers.
