Going off-topic, but same, here. Over the pandemic I made a list of 60 or so shoots that had been left to "ripen" going back to 2013(!) and used my downtime to process a good many of them. I often suffer from a bit of sensory saturation after a shoot and need time before I can approach an editing session with a clear head, other times I'm uninspired or distracted by a newer shoot or some other shiny object. Sometimes this was a gleaning pass through an already culled session, but mostly it was entirely untouched shoots. Anyway, it's not just you!Raw only, after I shoot a photo, I have to let it "rest" before I can figure out what I want to do with it. It isn't common, but I have let some photos 'rest' for years before, I see what needs to be done. Raw allows me the maximum amount of flexibility.
Also, I'm certain many of those older shoots benefitted from subsequent improvements in LR.
