Thank you all who have written, and I apologize for not having responded to all emails and FB messages.
To those who asked: no, I am not keeping a private blog. I just wanted to not exist in the blogosphere for a while. I never imagined it to be such a hard thing to do. I guess it didn't occur to me that I do like the friends I've made here, and I have been missing you too.
Briefly, I have spent all of July to yesterday dealing with one of those things that I hate doing the most - the project took ALL of my time and energy, and I haven't day traded for months now.
In the same time, I learn that most people are more complex than I think, and that despite my best efforts to not alienate them, they will still leave when they can't get what they want.
Everything's starting to not feel so bad anymore though. I've come to terms that what I can control is far outnumbered by those that I can't - and that I am doing both myself and people who care about me a great favor by simply letting go and focusing on living each day just taking care of what I CAN do for myself and people who need me.
In my darkest moments, I had made plans to return to Canada, totally forgetting/ignoring D's 10-year plan; after mulling over for days on end how much D loves the high salary, the low interest and low taxes here, I called off the move.
I rented out another of my home, and we live even further away from civilization now. The beach is 3 minutes' walk away, and there are no more neighbors and guards to annoy me.
For the 6th time, it's near the end of the year again where it's difficult to day trade without frequent distractions. It is highly likely that I will return to regular trading and posting only in the beginning of 2014.
@Soulfire: no, I've not gone to the dark side of FB :-). I have not written anything anywhere else since my last blog post in June.
