All about a Song , She’s not there.

“we can meet Cain, Judas and Lucifer by being aware of our own desires to be false and to betray, to kill our brother and to kill ourselves, that our kiss has death in it and that there is a piece of the soul that will live forever cast out from both human and heavenly company” ~ Pg. 169 Praxis , James Hillman The Dream and the Underworld. 

2003 in the morning Lynn drove in the Wal-Mart parking lot. She was driving a 1960 Pontiac convertible. Sunglasses pulled back her dark hair. A cigarette moved as she pulled it out of her mouth to talk. Don Henley’s lyrics came to mind, “but I can see you, your brown skin shinin’ in the sun, you got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby,” Lynn’s  image passed as the Wal-Mart Radio daggered  into my heart a song by The Zombies. She’s Not There. It is March 2016.

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.
