Waiting for the rain

Stencil Relief by Hudley 1998

A slow down, during middle age and my destiny only shines through a synchronicity, now and then, when I see a yellow VW Bug. The impulse to create is a wonderful experience. Now years later I have poems and artwork piled up. What is the purpose of creating inspirational things if they are going to be thrown in the trash when you die? I just don’t know what to do with all this stuff. SHould I destroy it as a Tibetan Buddhist sand maṇḍala? Do I go on the rampage and do some Guerrilla marketing and sell my creations for profit? Or do I let them sit as they are, hopeful that a skinny grand-daughter might find it all.  All the poems and art that I did. Maybe she will dig what grandma created? I feel trapped.

The Body will again become restless
Until your soul paints all its beauty
Upon the Sky …
For when the heart tastes its glorious destiny
And you awake …

– Hafiz

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.
