It all began with the ladybugs, harbingers of GOOD LUCK.
Well, to be honest, my Chinese fortune cookie predicted this, “A long awaited vacation will bring you a GREAT DEAL OF PLEASURE.”
Nevertheless, I was pleased when a ladybug stopped by to have lunch with me the day before I was leaving for Burning Man.
And then later that day, another ladybug hitched a ride on my windshield all the way from Stanford to San Jose.
Could it be that my long-planned-for vacation at Burning Man was destined to be a great burn?
Would I surpass the joy and happiness I had at my 2016 burn?
“What do ladybugs symbolize?” I asked Tejas.
“Good luck,” he responded, after consulting the internet for a moment.
Good enough for me!
