Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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.

Went into the chat room last Friday night, for the first time in a while, and learned that Mequa passed away. I had been good friends with him for a time, but we had differences and stopped talking back in the spring of this year. I knew however,…Continue

Loren, Thanks for this Enya moment!

Comment by Joan Denoo on Wednesday

Randy, you have every reason to be proud of your family. I am proud of them, too. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on Wednesday

Loren, I've always loved that song.  Seems I've heard it many times and did, in fact, know it was performed by Enya, but I never really researched the details about that song or who Enya is until now.  Thanks for posting it.  It's such beautiful music.

Comment by Ian Mason on Tuesday

Enya is unique and that is a lovely song. Thanks.

Comment by Loren Miller on Tuesday

I first heard this a LONG time ago, just how long, I don't remember.  It's a song which feels almost effortless in its character, one I doubt I could ever tire of.

Comment by Ian Mason on Tuesday

Brag away, Randall. Family love and pride are very positive things.

Comment by Randall Smith on Tuesday

Thanks, Joan, for the promo!  Yes, my farms "kids" have their ups and downs. Yesterday, Nate was digging for an irrigation pipe leak. It's always something--machinery, weather, findng a baby sitter (my job today), etc.  If you check out their web address (below from Joan), you'll find another link to a short video made by Slow Food Indy with an interview. Yes, you might say I'm proud of my kids and what they're doing. Hope you don't mind me bragging.

So too much rain in Indiana, and not enough out West, Joan? <sigh> Vegetable lovers sadden.

By the way, to avoid confusion, there is a Turkish documentary from 2008 with the same title name. 

I hope everyone had a good weekend.
