superstitions: yellow ladybug

i blurred my hand to remove your attention from my unsightly hairs. wish i had another photo!

i blurred my hand to remove your attention from my unsightly hairs. wish i had another photo!

i never knew, nor have i seen a ladybug in yellow before. it caught my attention yesterday morning while pondering at the seats by the flatiron building.

this little creature emerged briefly onto the top side of the mesh table and vanished into the underside again.

it happened so quickly, i questioned if i was hallucinating. there’s no way this is real. i spent a couple of minutes examining all around the table. i didn’t give up one bit! i don’t know where it was hiding, but it reappeared on that same spot. wild.

lately, i’ve been a sucker for superstition. my wish/dream/goal has remained unchanged for the past year-and-a-half and it’s stronger than anything i’ve ever wanted. i know that i have no control over things like that, so if this brings good luck, you bet i’d take advantage of this! i calmly introduced my open palm toward this spotted wonder and it walked along my finger! i made a wish and it went off. that rare-ass beautiful punk flew away mid-wish. i was the aggressor here though. i guess i deserved that.

i looked up if their was any significance of these particular bugs and there were too many that i made my own personal belief behind it. i wonder if it will come true. i’d really like it too.
