at this point, this journal is friends only.....however i am open to anyone respectful and sincere enough. if you feel we got something in common you can relate to or are on the same wavelength...feel free to leave me a message or post or email me and let me know if you wanna add me as a friend (and why would be nice too)...having said that.
welcome and one love :-)
if you happen to have a disagreement or problem with me (although i can't imagine someone having a personal problem with someone from the intenet they've never even met in person or ever likely to (although these days in the "age of the cyberspace" there are those who do have problems with people/strangers from the internet....you may already know the type i'm talking about), or something i've said, i'm open to a dialogue or discussion.
oh....and if you're gonna use something from my journal, be a mensch or at least decent enough to ask first, i'll most likely say no problem if you wanna quote or use something i wrote.
ok?
peace-
