Early roses

Last week was a week of fulfillment.

“Is the spring coming?” he said. “What is it like?”… “It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine…”― Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden

Early spring roses in my secret garden...
Early spring roses in my secret garden…

Early spring roses in my secret garden…

The loss of parents and all of their life together has come to a final close. A good living pattern has been set up for family and I got to hang out with my friends at the local pub. Now, this is an important touch with my community. Son finished his story for English class!! The taxes are done!

Yes, all cooked up and thrown into the Federal and California tax fire!!

The rain fell on the roses yesterday; if only for a few minutes. I pulled weeds and vines from them the day before…revealing a secret garden. Another thing that was fulfilled the last week .

Hear the sound of the VW Squareback starting up..wow… miss that ..

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.
