My Punkalullaby

“The praying mantis lives 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.”

My Punkalullaby

Continuity of life,
Purple
Serendipity
Cyclical movement
Innocence, experience, wisdom
Back to the punk rock years
Memories, friendships, and bands.
Freedom and searching
Anarchy and hope
That wild punk chick
Has merged again with me.
Spirituality, nature, and chaos
Praying mantis in my garden
On my arm
In my book,
Everywhere
Green
The wild praying mantis has merged with me,
Even in the tattoo artist’s garden.

~ Hudley’s Poem

End Trafficking of Native Americans Act of 2018

Pass it on..

To, The Honorable Senator Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto

204 Russell Senate Office Building, United States Senate, Washington, DC 20510

RE: S. 3280: End Trafficking of Native Americans Act of 2018

Dear Senator Catherine Cortez Masto,

As a citizen of the United States, I think that the United States and the Federal Government need to support the unique rights of Native American Women who have been, and are being, abducted, part of human trafficking, in the sex trade underground. I am a believer in the rights of these women. Your bill “to increase intergovernmental coordination to identify and combat human trafficking within Indian lands and of Indians” is well grounded in this issue and I support bill S. 3280: End Trafficking of Native Americans Act of 2018.

Researching the subject, I have found it a very complex one. It includes a history of Federal Government and Native American Indian Treaties. It also includes an intense and problematic look at Native American Indian reservations, tribal leaders and their form of government and police force, in contrast or contrary to, a look at the federal government, state government and their police force.

It seems because of this complexity that the victims, Native American women, have found themselves in a vulnerable place. It seems the human traffickers know this and seem to prey on these women living within this complexity. I read on the website, The Human Trafficking Search Web site an article entitled Trafficking in Tribal Nations: the impact of sex trafficking on Native Americans posted by Liza Kane-Hartnett, that some of the problems stem from, “The proliferation of the fracking industry also contributed to a rise in sex trafficking of Native girls and women as “man camps” were established in remote areas of Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota, creating a high-demand for sex in an environment rampant with drugs, alcohol, and limited supervision.”

Regardless to this there is a positive growing action by state and federal government to help these women. On the website, The Voice of America. I read an article entitled Lawmakers Propose New Ways to Help Native American Women. It states that the “Federal and state lawmakers have proposed or adopted a series of measures designed to address the problem of missing and slain Native American women and related issues, such as human trafficking, domestic violence and rape.”

I believe that the End Trafficking of Native Americans Act of 2018 is a promising way to    help Native American women by fighting for their rights and showing these women the proposed new ways to help them. A way of bringing the federal, state lawmakers and Native American tribal communities together to stop sex trafficking of Native girls and women. In the 2017 Trafficking in Persons Report – United States of America, “Advocates called for increased training of prosecutors and judges on mandatory restitution for victims of trafficking. Multiple federal agencies continue to engage in extensive capacity-building for law enforcement, judges, military personnel. pro Bono attorneys, and others to more effectively investigate and prosecute trafficking cases.”I support bill S. 3280: End Trafficking of Native Americans Act of 2018 and the many advocacy groups supporting the great need to stop sex trafficking of Native girls and women.

SEVEN YEARS ON WORDPRESS !!

th (18)idn’t speak much when I was young. Was not interested in writing either. Only a few poems. I played with my friends, but I found it more and more difficult to communicate at school. I felt restricted, invisible or persecuted by my own peers. I was wild and not awake to the pounding of an education that seemed incredulous to me. I now realize I had foresight, creativity and a natural spiritualism that could not find contact. Nature was receptive! My mom and dad tried with lots of watercolors and paper.  A giant black board was painted in my room. Endless chalk drawings were created and erased, drawn and erased. The old player piano in the boys’ room is where I spent hours playing any song I wanted that I learned by heart only.

Did I not express myself in school because of fear? Was it the constant fighting and alcoholism in my household which pushed my mind down into myself? Was it dyslexic, autism or a painful shyness that was the bewildering issue within me? We the children were not diagnosed back then.

Having foresight was a curse when no one listened!  I did not have the proper device , neither did I have the wise ability to  reach out  towards others. I did not have a voice!

Now at 60 I realize my heart & mind are mature and keen enough to reach my inward growing child. That is my reasoning currently to create a hub like The Seminary Of Praying Mantis.  To share my voice and reach a global community! I believe this is the truth. Finding one’s voice and sticking to it is wonderful. The last seven years WordPress has helped to make this happen for me.


holy-baubo


I am celebrating 7 years with WordPress. My HUB in a global community.

While spending a few hours observing nature this afternoon. I know that the many voices were loud and some subtle. The chirp-chirp birds, to the black crows on tall cypress trees. Above me high in the sky are the circling hawks and the commercial jets. Sounds of life. One drop of rain touched me. I am one drop of rain too.

I invite you to support The Seminary of Praying Mantis and celebrate with me. I have words to read, items for sale and images to make you laugh. I have grown as a writer, author and artist.  It is amazing that so many tools are available where one can publish ones’ works! It can be achieved very cheaply and sometimes even for free as with Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing. I have taken the core of my punk philosophy, wild nature, foresight and freedom to communicate with the world. I found a place to express myself. It is colorfully rewarding….

weird juxtapose

Viewing an image of Rocketdyne today at a Car Repair Shop in Canoga Park  I was amazed by the structure. The view was showing the perspective where the viewer can see the Verdugo mountain range in the background. At the time of the picture, 1950s, Rocketdyne is surrounded by farmlands and wild fields. Canoga Ave-Owensmouth and Victory Blvd.-Vanowen outline the buildings by rough asphalt two lane highways. Rocketdyne looks like a large computer chip including a large parking lot filled with cars. Ironically and sadly today the same once futuristic rocket-plant is now an empty field where while flowers and weeds are growing. The only things remaining from the 1950s are a few old pepper and eucalyptus trees. It is now hopelessly surrounded by cars, apartments and more apartments. A weird juxtapose in my minds eye. I liked it better in the 1950s.


My Punkalullaby Promotion Letter To Universities

My Punkalullaby tells a genuine account regarding the exploding punk culture during the late 1970s and throughout the 1980s. This is a story about the essence of a young woman living the life of a radical punk rocker.  Most importantly it outlines the evolution of Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine. Flipside gave a voice to the punks when no one else would. Flipside supported and documented all the players. The fans, bands, promoters and artists all respected Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine.

Let me introduce myself. I co published and edited Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine from 1979 to 1989. Flipside Fanzine documented the Los Angeles underground music scene and the punk rock scene for 20 years. This was locally in Los Angeles and internationally. When I owned the publication, from 1979 to 1989, we published an issue every two months. We also sold Flipside Fanzine Vinyl Records and Live Flipside Video Tapes of current bands at the time.

I am introducing My Punkalullaby: The Seminary of Praying Mantis (Punk Fanzine Memoir Book 1) Kindle Edition. I am asking that you consider including My Punkalullaby in your reading list for your students as an insightful historic memoir addition to your curriculum.

Trust Interview with Hudley Flipside

https://hudleyflipside.com/trust-fanzine-interview-with-hudley/


we were in love and wild about it..

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.
