I've reached a new phase in my life--again!--and am a little out of my comfort zone. I am desperately seeking solace from a busy and ever-changing world. I yearn for my former life of raising children and using my creativity, but am trying to resolve this new one--in a new state, with a new identity--and be open to the possibilities and adventures that lie ahead for me.

Friday the 13th
Some trivia about Friday the 13th:
1) Friggatriskaidekaphobia is the fear of Friday the 13th. Almost 20 million Americans have figgatriskaidekaphobia, which is also called paraskavedekatriaphobia. Those who don’t mind Friday, but fear the number 13, have triskaidekaphobia.
2) Since there’s such a fear of the number 13 among Americans, there are many infrastructures that leave off that number. For instance, many hospitals don’t have room number 13, and there is usually not a 13th floor. In tall buildings, the 13th floor is typically skipped and some airlines don't have a Gate 13.
3) There can be more than one Friday the 13th in a year. In 2015, there were three, which is the most that can occur. There is at least one Friday the 13th per year.
4) Butch Cassidy, Infamous American train and bank robber, was born Friday April 13, 1866.
