Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Kathy, I'm glad you got to see the eclipse!  

Comment by kathy: ky 1 hour ago
I drove the nine miles and saw the eclipse in totality for one minute. I saw the diamond ring effect but no Bailey's Beads. The sky was clear and the humidity had dropped it was 93° but not bad at all.
@ Ian, religion is an everyday all day long affair in the South. There is always someone willing to thank god and ask where you go to church (not if). In the waiting room at Vanderbilt University while my husband was having treatment I was sitting with a large group because there was no place else to sit. A man came to our group (surgery waiting) and asked if we had a minute to hear how the Lord had saved his wife, just three weeks prior, at that very hospital. Me and my godless heathen t-shirt just got up and walked away :)

The photo doesn't do it justice.

Ian,

That is a cool photo of your eclipse.

Here we only experience a tint darkness. Though, the shadows from the tall trees seemed to cast from the wrong direction.

Ian that is a gorgeous photo.

Had a pleasant experience yesterday in Capitol Hill park. A woman was struggling with putting a yellow ribbon round a tree so I gave a hand. Her name was Kimberly and she told me that 'the love of her life' was coming home from a tour of duty as an eco-warrior. We had a nice chat about the way of the world and its future. She talked about 'meditating and praying' for a better world but I didn't discuss the issue as her nearest and dearest were out and about doing real things.

Ian, I'm happy you had a gap in the clouds after coming all this way to see it. Lots of other things to enjoy, especially friendly people.

Comment by Ian Mason 9 hours ago

There was a little gap in the clouds here in Nashville, just enough that I can say 'I saw it'.

Always a good time for a kitty.

All we got to see was dimness here, too much cloud cover.
