Sounds like you need it, I do not comment much here, but I often read. Your flashes I have read have been well worth it - I have called them poetic in the past, you have a strong poetic side that I hope you will tap into. Good luck & best wishes on this hiatus.
Stay well, Nicolette, in the meantime. You'll know when the time is right to put an appearance back in.
i'll miss you here but am glad you know when to rest and recharge. take care.sherry
