A toast: The call to enlightened foresight…

There are so many things to be fucking thankful for today such as a good pint at the local community pub, watching my kid developing his own drawing style with graphite pencils and knowing that husband is making double time and a half working turkey day. Yes he will come home to a homemade turkey dinner. When communities work together as a whole; this is the best gift that we can give each other. I am thankful for this. To expand out to see the world and see that there are still wild places beyond the touch and control of humanity is not as promising. I am connected to the earth in a profound way as most aboriginal and nature loving communities are. We participate in this knowing. Corporate globalization, economic royalists have none of this. They betray themselves in their madness for wealth which only reflects eventually their own doom… but there is a hopeful dream for their enlightenment as well…

“the chance that they might see”

and hopefully so…

I make a toast to the Economic Global Royalists; though they sell their souls for profit, abuse the land and create slavery around the world… there still is the hope that they may come around and see the truth…somehow with a blink of the eye they may find compassion, strength and honesty and say….

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.
