I've come to the conclusion that it is time for me to take a break from music. The last few gigs I've played have been more like work than playing for fun and the love of music. It's been quite some time since I've taken a break from performing and hope time away will be refreshing. I'm sure many of you have been in this position. I'd love to hear your reasons for taking a step back and what eventually drew you back to performing live.
