Son laughed at Chiron and said,

“He has man-boobs!”

Laughing I threw a pillow at Son and replied,

“He is a Hermaphrodite maybe…?!”

I found a friend today. An image made from a stencil, back in the day when apartment living came alive with a little art project. This is Chiron. He travels in our social system between Saturn and Uranus. This planetoid has a way of doing his magic that we mystics know about.

This is a personification and mythological image relief of Chiron. I’d been looking for him over the years. I could not find the original stencil, yet the image found me as I was actually working on another project. He just appeared in a large drawing paper book. A heartfelt ostentatious time to surprise me and now he’s on a viewing wall again.

This morning the light form an outside hanging crystal was playfully illuminating the image of Chiron with arched and broken rainbows on the wall of our living room.

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.
