Woven

DSC01193

I remember for 20 buck I could buy a wardrobe of clothing: mix and match fashion and then add something of my own.

Fashion is superficial. The competitive world of contemporary fashion bores me. I rebel against it. Yet now the fashion industry has taken that rebellious look and ripped it off and now reproduces it in India or Mexico; taking the sacredness away from its clothing message. This is always the case. It is the matter of quality over quantity. Lots of women dress to be a fuckable target for men. Let them. There was a time, as stated in many fairy tales, where it was a woman’s life to weave the family clothing. As soon as they could little girls learned to weave.

“So this is what they did with their time?” Little lamb said to her mama.

“Yes, but it left time to dream!”

“What did they dream of?”

“They dreamed of weaving golden threads and finding a beautiful Prince?”

“Is that all?”

“No they also planned out their day.”

Hope is the golden thread that should be woven into every experience of life, ” and fashion sucks!!

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.
