think outside the box

clues swarming like ladybugs

telling my fortune 

 

 

 

(If a ladybug lands on a girl, she can ask it in which direction she must look to find her true love. Then you wait for the ladybug to fly away, but you must not try to hurry it up or change the direction it chose. I don't remember if the ladybugs from my childhood were flying in the right direction, but I do remember my friends and I would laugh a lot, waiting for ladybug to finally takes off, trying to discreetly influence its choice of direction, discussing which of the boys who lived in that direction could it be... not to mention how amusing it was if it landed back on you, or on another girl right away... that game is still played, with real ladybugs, not apps... so far :D )

dry leaves just curl, rebel dust-
