You know how your computer gets sluggish when you haven't defragged your hard drive in a while? My mind feels like that right now.

So rather than upload status reports to the Web, I'm considering temporarily bowing out of the blog scene until I feel better. (Trouble is, blogging has become one of those benevolent obsessions that helps add structure to my day and helps me keep track of myself -- so I can't make any promises.)

Highly recommended! Take a break from blogging and go outside and fall asleep on the grass under a blossom tree. You'll soon be cured.

I hope you stick around, but I can't say I blame you. I don't know how you manage to do so much. Whichever course you take, take care of yourself.

taking a break is good. Whether we want it to or not, the internet inevitably clogs us up with useless unwanted jetsam. We're not designed to be exposed to information noise for any length of time. Hope to see you back soon!

I'll miss your blog, but take care of yourself first.

I know how you feel, having gone "on hiatus" myself a few times, not all of them work related. If you need something to amuse yourself, just give me a call, and we can get you to work for the KLM Fanclub - she says she's looking forward to meeting you!:-)

Well, a word of encouragement. Defrag your mind, but come back - yours is a unique voice wich needs to be heard.

My advice to you is to go home, have a Scotch, dim the lights and "defrag" your "hard drive."

Always makes me feel better, anyway.

Mac -- To repeat, get some therapy. I highly recommend EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy. I did this for about a year a while back with great results. In fact, in some respects, it strongly resembles "defragmenting" your mind, at least the part where memories are "stored." Here's a link to the Web site:

EMDR Institute, Inc.

(BTW, EMDR also coolly high-tech.)
