Dreams awake now !! Five Years

Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

~George Bernard Shaw

I’ve been blogging on my WordPress site for five years. It is something that brings me great joy and amusement to communicate with a global community. I find this fascinating.

Thanks goes to my WordPress community and others that “come on by ”  to read it or just look at the pictures. A big Thank you to all my followers.

“Invention, it must be humbly admitted, does not consist in creating out of void, but out of chaos.”

~ Mary Shelley

I have goals; to come out with a small  book of poetry and a surprising turn on my punk memoir The Seminary Of Praying Mantis My Punkalullaby as chapters of poetic verse. Also to convert our bomb-shelter into a home publishing studio. For art and writing… dreams awake now !!

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.
