Apparently a rest is not what I needed at all. Welcome back to my readers. There will be no break and right away there will be more postings.
The first thing that happened when I contemplated a break from writing is that I felt worse. Stressors multiplied, solutions eluded me. I turned inwards with sorrow and I turned outward with blame. To put it bluntly, things went for ‘shite’.
Writing is the answer for me. So just like the patient who is sorry they went off their meds and returns sheepishly to their doctor, I’m back.
And my advice to myself – when something works, don’t quit it.
