Narcissism comes to play on our birthdays… we…once little babes. Now that special day comes to say ,

“Hey it is my birthday!”

I have waited 55 years and Dr. Seuss’s Birthday Bird has not come yet to visit with the official birthday bird greeting… but I know it well. Do you know the official birthday bird greeting?  Finger to toe and finger to nose?


I can wait. As a mom I always get it all going for the kids and my husband on their birthdays. Yet, I would not find the same for me. I think if I did have a little girl instead of two boys things might be different.  I take responsibility for my own narcissist birthdays. I prepare a birthday table, get a cake and make up some food.  I share these birthday pictures too with you.

Happy birthday to all born on May 28th !!

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” ― “Happy Birthday to You!”

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.
