It all ends up in the trash or thrift store… only sometimes it does end up in the Museum !

My progressed moon and sun are entering Taurus. The sun is a bit ahead. I guess the active Gemini moon and sun fun are going to be leaving me~ thinking wise. Says I will need to sleep a lot and I will  not take all this political strife too well either.

Today at Trader Joe’s while checking out my groceries , I talked to a young punk checker. He declared himself punk! He looked more like a 70s punk than a current morphed-up pretentious one. We talked about thrift stores, art and a Polish artist that was considered a polish Picasso. After his death they found his work in thrift stores.  I told the young punk my punk line, that I tell all young punks.

“Yes, I found my first punk record at a used book-thrift store, The Saints.”

He told me he thinks he heard their name but will check them out.  I will check out the Polish Artist. He told me about,  a film / documentary came out about the genius Polish Picasso. I told the young punk about the Museum of Fred.

While driving home I thought about a few things the young punk and I talked about. It was nice to have an interesting conversation with someone in real-time. That the core “lifestyle” of punk is not dead. The idea of art as a process is a message I enjoyed sharing. Also, I admitted to him something I never have admitted to anyone. Though some have tried to label me an artist.

Young Punk Checker at Trader Joe’s: Are you an artist?

I hesitated, but he did compliment me on my green hat with silver flower & purple stone. (Even if it was a thrift store joke).

Me: Yes, yes, I am an artist. I love the process of art.

I also confessed that I am not struggling and I’m quite content.

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.
