On How was your luck today (Friday the 13th)?

Thank you so much for this link. By the end I was ready to cry for the old man and his animals. I can truly identify with how he felt, impossibly weary in body and mind.

I stayed home on Friday the 13th. There are several little superstitutions that I follow even though they make no sense because they were instilled in me when I was a child and so are part of my mental and emotional makeup.

I'd not thought of that story in years and then this OTS jogged my memory. Glad it spoke to you.
