Form letter rejection

Only had to wait one day for this very nice rejection:

Thanks so much for sending your query – I appreciate the chance to take a look at your project. I’m sorry to say, though, that I’m going to step aside instead of asking to read more.

Please bear in mind that everybody has different tastes and interests – my decision is based on my present workload, and also based on the kind of material that I’m presently representing. That said, this is a crazily subjective business: I absolutely think you should keep looking for representation because what works for one agent (or publisher) may not work as well for another.

Very best of luck!

I queried 9 months ago but never heard back. Now she's closed to queries. Can I still follow up with her on it? :(
