I've long thought that I should learn to read tea leaves, but mine is a simple equation: Leaves in a cup equals good fortune just passed. I love the pamphlet. If it's an accurate example of how to read tea leaves, it's not what I would have expected were I to have expected anything. Much of it is quite literal, seeing shapes in the remains as one sees shapes in clouds. Quite a flexible and useful tool. The dots that indicate a letter is coming might become outdated, or do you think they apply to email? What about to text messages? But probably not to cell phone calls. Leaves can bring much meaning. I return to what the Poet said:

a butterfly wing
among leaves at my door--
Autumn wind
