Leaving Las Vegas

Room 8057
Mirage Hotel
Las Vegas, Nevada
May 29, 2007
8:30PM (PT)

I am taking a leave of absence from writing this blog as well as responding to all electronic communications from my friends. Since all my friends read my blog, this seems like the most efficient way to let you know I am not responding to emails for awhile, so don't take it personally.

It is time to disappear, reflect, be invisible and find a path to healing.

I will of course continue to trade.

Losing love hurts, but losing it suddenly, inexplicably, devastatingly, will remain one of this life's mysteries, and it will haunt me all my remaining days.

Ironically, my ex-wife Roslyn, who has every reason to hate me, but doesn't, summed it up like this:

"Allan, you are a nice guy and nice guys are hard to find. You deserve better."

Good for you Allan.

You'll be in my thoughts and prayers.

I understand your need for some time away from this blog and much more.

Just want to say thanks for all your help and encouragement.

Hope to cross paths with you again in the future.

Will miss you and this blog - I have started to learn quite a bit from you.

Just as the sun sets, it will be sure to rise. You'll feel better soon.

Here is something bold (not to undermine what you are going through at all), which awakened the soldier in me in some of the worst cases:

Everybody falls... It`s how fast you get back up.

"Some look where the arrow is going while others look where it comes from." That one is from me, Frank.

Forgive me for I did not know where that first quote came from, but I had Allan in mind.
