purity and integrity

IMG_0867

I wish I had a great shield to protect the youth of today. To shield them from the criticism and betrayal they will face now! All that they are standing tall for which is just, honest and good. The same type of purity and integrity that moved me as a youth. It still moves me as a senior. The same passion and talent. The same need for change. It is a time to choose. It is always a time to choose an altered life.

“Good Spirit,” he pursued, as down upon the ground he fell before it: “Your nature intercedes for me and pities me. Assure me that I yet may change these shadows you have shown me, by an altered life!” (4.162) ~ A Christmas Carol

I know what it is to stand up for the same things. I also know what it is like to be brought down as well. Integrity stands tall with a large shadow that fights it. The best, the average and the confused youths will have to deal with this shadow.

As Robert Mueller seems to do. He turns his back to the media gossip of barking betrayal and shadows of criticism.  Do not swallow this.  The lies that will come your way. They will try to get you to believe their lies.

All I can say is to remember, it is not your fault. Keep the youthful horn of rebellion blowing. Remember it is not your fault. You are brave and noble creatures.

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.
