Driving down a street with youngest son as he was driving , so much has changed yet the overpass of the 101 freeway has not . Walking to and from school each day as a youth was done sometimes reluctantly under this bridge. Now it is packed with homeless people. One man stretched out for all to see. Asleep, dirty and having his rolled up clothes, stuffed and a make shift tent under him .

The middle of the day seemed altered. All the new apartments going up and even more homeless people too.

I wrote to the Governor, my Representatives and my Senators …. No reply . I wonder what these homeless people do for hygiene and where they are going to the bathroom?

They are next to a Kaiser hospital and a Middle School … I wonder what type of conversation is happening there.
So a prayer for us all during such contrary times .

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.
