Death guns…

The last two images that I saw today were sickening to me. One was of a mother holding a gun to her baby’s head and another was of a video of a youth-police shooting, where the police shot a youth. Is it believable that he was killed?

We are so quick to blame someone or something. Like the police or the kids with guns; or the women who support having the right to bear arms. I want to explore the parents, adults and governing bodies that let this happen.

The “anger, fear and stupidity” is really the issue here. We all know there are wars going on, right on our streets. Gangs, drugs, and irresponsible parents who don’t supervise their kids. Or over eager and under trained frightened police officers that need to develop an intuitive sense before they are handed a death gun.

I can only sense what it must be like for the parents of a child that was shot down. The overwhelming grief of knowing that guns and our kids are somehow bound together in some strange game of Russian roulette?

This is not a new story. It is a very old story indeed. It is more a story of an ever-emerging shadow of our human nature. The power to kill and be killed. Like the cowboys of old. I wish I did not see those images today, yet it informs me that life is too terrible and too unhappily real!!

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.
