Wild thing

Wildflowers have taught me to be authentic. You cannot mess with a wildflower. If does its own thing Too much water or love and if will die. One must look at a wildflower with a sideways glance. Appreciation is appreciated. Don’t expect a sweetness without an inward determination or discernment from the wild thing.


Today while shopping the Sunday crowds were noticeable. The checkout lane was accepted. Yet even with the self-check out open and the 15 items or less open, two young men with several Styrofoam cups wanted to go first. They loomed close to me. Thinking my old women ways would be forgiving and stupid to the fact they would eventually ask the question.

And then it happened the young man said,

“Can you do us a favor…”

I said with well learned flower intention and assertion,

“No. There is a self-checkout over there and a 15 or less over there. Otherwise you need to chill and wait like the rest of us.”

I went ahead with the checkout process. These two young men then decided to enter my space. I had to tell them to please step back.

“You need to step back because you are invading my space.”

They were in front of the cash check machine. I had to bag my things. They were shaking their heads like I was playing the wrong card.

You cannot expect older mamas to be sweaty pie by force. If these two young men were older and needed my help, I would have let them through and bagged for them. But these guys thought wrong about me.

It felt good to say “no” and “back off.”

I did not use fuck, or stupid or use my hand finger. I was assertive and authentic like the wildflowers in my garden.




Studying Algol

“She teaches us to stand on our own two feet, to stick up for ourselves, to fight for the underdog, and to speak out when injustice is concerned. She is deliberately paired with specific planets for a reason. If she happens to be conjunct one of your planets, consider yourself an ambassador for the cause. Look for what, (planet) how, (sign) and where (house) you are being called upon to make a difference.”

Pallas Athene with the Head of Medusa’s head on her breastplate also known as Algol. (A fixed star too ) Watercolor by Hudley


“So the God of the sea raped Medusa, but what is more horrifying was Pallas Athena siding with the Gods in condemning her. This important part of the story is often skipped over… together with her rival Pallas Athena she became invincible. Maybe there is a message here, when former adversaries are united they become stronger. Algol is also definitely a star of transformation. The blinking binary star goes from light to dark in cycles, like Persephone.”

The Avengers, the Dils and the Alley Cats.

Sunday May 26 will be the time to join with punk comrades and celebrate our originators and characters of the early California punk scene. The Avengers, the Dils and the Alley Cats.

In memory of Jimmy Wilsey

I stumbled into the early punk scene. The Australian Saints and the San Franciscan Avengers gave me the courage to go and see any other alternative underground bands on my own. I found myself melting into a wild alchemy of youths that had something to say. We were finding our voices. All the unknown characters were there, nobodies creating a scene together. We were wild and knew all the songs by heart by The Dils, The Alley Cats and the Avengers.

I will be there handing out some badges joining in the event in memory of our youthful rebellion that is still the heart beat of this crazy continuity of punk rock that still drives our DNA onward,,,

The Avengers, The Dils and The Alley Cats + many special guests (A Celebration of the Life of Jimmy Wilsey) at Echoplex

“Although we are typically in the habit of perceiving our world in terms of solid shapes and forms,  Taoism teaches that we can train ourselves to perceive in other ways, and a good place to start is with our own human body. Though we may now experience our body as being rather solid, at a molecular level it is comprised mostly of water–a very fluid substance! And at an atomic level, it is 99.99% space–a vast (and infinitely intelligent) emptiness.” Online source …

The Seminary of Praying Mantis Publishing by Hudley Flipside: The Special Fluff Faerie; Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing

“The Mantis will sit in an attitude of extreme reverence and contemplation, his head turned sometimes slightly on side as if he were waiting…for the wind to come from far beyond the mountains on the other side of the desert to bring him a story of life before and beyond the moment. …” ~ Pg. 22. THE ERANOS LECTURE SERIES; THE CREATIVE PATTERN IN PRIMITIVE AFRICA BY LAURENS VAN DER POST

 The Special Fluff Faerie was written thirty something years ago. My young niece had just come into the world. I was inspired by her sweetness and was feeling the desire to create something special for her. Also, the question of life, death and rebirth were heavy on my mind during my early twenties. The belief in Faerie Tales and Folktales were a part of my life. The ability to create something out of the magic of my imagination was a new developing confidence I was exploring. I think it is easy to see that this little story is about life’s mysteries. It is about belonging, responsibilities, hope and sweet possibilities in life. That life has meaning!

My sister told me that her daughter didn’t get or understand the story. A few years later they sent the story back to me. I had made a little handmade story book for my niece with the The Special Fluff Faerie in it. I have held on to the story book for all these years. I was hurt that my niece never seemed to grasp the value of it. Tossing it aside like she did. She most likely grew up, went to college and moved out without a thought about the story.

I am re-priming The Special Fluff Faerie now because I feel overlooking it and throwing it away is not what would be the best thing for my psyche. It has value to me. So, for due respect to Eagle of the East, Spring and the Native American Medicine Wheel ~ I dedicated this book.  I will again publish this little story I hope it will be enjoyed by others, be it adults or youths.

It is a strange little story, yet most Faerie Stories are strange little stories. Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing is special to me. They give me the opportunity to publish my works for free without a middle man.  I am in the process of publishing many of my works. I guess I just had to wait until the time was ripe. It is very ripe indeed!!!
