Chapter 7, Page 1 Never the same

Growing old is hard.

Wednesday's comic will be light-hearted to make up for this episode! I promise!

This was actually supposed to be spread out a bit more between the end of Chapter 6 and the start of Chapter 7. But as various things conspired against that happening here's the end result. I hope it isn't too terribly wordy.

Beautifully done, Brigid. That's a hard time of life to discuss and really hard for young people to understand. You have told this story very well. Made me sad because I have gone through it as well, so the CHANGES really resonate. Kids hate change, don't they? Much more than adults I think. Everything needs to stay the same - it's so comforting to only have to deal with the warm and familiar. [sniff!]

Well done.

Yeah. It was kinda hard writing this, too, because even though it's been twelve years it also feels very recent.

And change is hard to deal with, especially at a time when your own body is going through some freaky changes. (Never want to go through puberty ever again.)
