Crack me a nut


I don’t run anymore nor do I jog…

The continuity of pain and sorrow is blended in the living of life. Writing is a way to endure the worst depths of pain and sorrow. Creativity is the tool to use while walking a lonely road we paradoxical all share. Music also is a way to feel part of something that understands the pitfalls of living.

I dine with pain and I laugh with sorrow. With joy I roll in the pricks of my mortality, and I cry when I see innocence displayed on the face of animals and children. Walking with betrayal as it slowly melts away is feeling the imprecations of love,

is the blues.

Becoming lost in a song and the lyrics heals the bad feelings. Musicians and authors, writing and reading, and creating and listening are ways to be or live with the blues.

Chill, we all have hearts but some of us know how to use our hearts a lot better than others…

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.
