Penny Cross

Exactly one year and three months, or, why I don't hate Friday the 13th so much.

It's been exactly one year and three months from the time when my howl of homecoming was not returned.

Adjusting for the lack of daylight savings time, I was home at the same time, and I lit a candle for Penny at the hour when I found her, and said a quick prayer.

About five minutes later I got a call from my cousin, and have been chatting with her for two hours.
She also misses Penny - we were parent figures for her for years. It's helped a lot.
