L&F, I’m not much at offering personal advice (well, not the good kind) so I will just leave a note of encouragement based on what you’ve written. Sounds like people depend on you in more than one way. Hang in there for them. And keep writing, even if someone else already said what you wanted to say; just because we have a lot of sunset paintings doesn’t mean no one will appreciate yours.
