    HI sweetie-

  2. Hello! I’ve just maid this English-language diary (in fact I’m from Russia) and am seeking friends (wiht the help of the interests), and came across your diary. I liked it (in fact I liked your interest “Slavic Paganism” most)) and I’d like you to friend me mutually so I’d be able to read it.
    Thank you)

  5. We’ve met on the ABNA forum and with your email I found my way around to this. I’ve added you as a friend on my LJ. I hope you would add me as well.:) And, I’ll go by the ABNA site you mentioned. I’m slowly poking my head above ‘real life.’
