I've decided to re-open my journal to public again. It was really unlike me to close up, but the situation that summer seemed to warrant it. As a matter of fact, I only got 1 negative comment, so perhaps I was wrong to distrust people.
My old entries will remain protected sheerly because I don't want to waste time editing them, but in future I will post publicly most of the time.
And, friends, do not worry, I haven't removed anyone.
