Where we stand

Here I stand where there once was a field ! I ran on it and played! I went to seasonal carnivals here! It progressed to a miniature golf course and large slides as I grew! later was a theater here where I viewed films upon a CinemaScope screen! Now there is my boy carrying toilet paper on the same spot years later! I wish I could take him back with me to the same spot years ago where I ran, rode the octopus carnival ride and lived my wild free youthful days! Where there once was a field, carnivals… But now only assault, concrete and a fucking Costco! Well at least the toilet paper is cheep!!

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.
