You have indeed been hitting it hard. You're wise to try to slow it down a little and smell the roses. Certainly the mind needs a vacation from the smell in those corners. Just take care of you and if you stumble across something you want some help with, don't fail to give us a shout.
Lots of love,
"Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting 'Holy Shit! What a ride!'" ~Hunter S. Thompson
