I've been on an extended vacation from the writing world. There's no particular reason for that other than choice and the need to take steps to rid my life and my mind of clutter. It's a necessary task from time to time and I highly recommend it. You'll find out exactly what you need, what you can and can't live without. Interestingly enough, you may also find that some of your personal relationships will change because of this "spring cleaning" exercise. It's all good in the end.
I'm not entirely sure that I'm ready to emerge again but I did come across the following quote and I find it interesting enough to share.
