this is just cool.

ladybugs. everywhere.

i picked up a serving shift on sunday at the bar. each time i went out to the patio, a ladybug landed on me, or flew into my face. same difference. i also kept finding them crawling up my arm once i was back inside. doesn't take much to amuse me. at one point, i looked up on the wall and there were close to 40 just cruising up and down the side of the building.

there are three currently residing in my house.

of course, this must mean something, right? in a universal sense? i mean, this has never happened before, in all of my 34 years.

so pokin' about i went...

here's the scoop - ladybugs as animal totems:

The ladybug is one of the few beetles that are well liked by humans. Unlike other beetles, the ladybug stirs a feeling of joy within us. Its small size denotes a delicate and loving nature. It emanates the energy of harmlessness and can show us how to stop harming ourselves.

The shell on its back serves to protect it from predators. Its wings fold against the body protecting its soft underside. Ladybugs have keen instincts and feel vibrations through their legs. This enables them to sense the energy of whatever they touch and is another form of protection. In spite of its size it appears to be fearless. A messenger of promise, the ladybug reconnects us with the joy of living. Fear does not live within joy. The need to release our fears and return to love is one of the messages it carries.

Ladybug teaches us how to restore our faith and trust in great spirit. It initiates change where it is needed the most.

i hear ya knockin' ladies.
