Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

Hi everyone,It was almost a half-century ago, at age 15 or so, that I encountered one of the more important influences in my life: a crazy group of poets/musicians who called themselves The Fugs.They had a huge impact on me in that, though raised in…Continue

Some William Blake to Ponder

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Donatien Alphonse François Apr 25. 6 Replies

Hello all,I'm new here, and so hope this isn't old hat. But, I just had to point you toward a marvelous poem by William Blake in case you've never read it. Despite his sometimes heavily tinged biblical references in his other art and poetry, this…Continue

Summer holiday (part 1) now booked. One week on Crete, the first week of June so the weather is not too hot. Part 2 will, I hope, be Greenland in August to run a ½-marathon but the date for the run hasn't been confirmed yet. I've been there before and taken part in the run spent a week in the capital, Nuuk. This time I'd like to see more of the country.

lol Chris.

But, the nit-picker in me wants to say that I hear smell is the most important part of taste, so there you go.

Comment by Plinius on April 9, 2013 at 11:24am

I'd eat it too, but how does he know what cat poop tastes like?

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 9, 2013 at 11:01am

I'd eat it, no worries.

Here's a funny "slice of life" story.  I don't think I would have had the guts to follow through with the same actions as this writer. 

I Ate My Sandwich Out Of The Garbage And I Feel Fine

Yes, I realize Anita was pregnant at the end, and was disappointed that she continued to be in denial about her husband. I hoped she would kick him out. Melanie's last scenes, with her morbid look, smoking and drinking after her grand flirtation with religion also surprised me; she could have come out on the other side with strength and self confidence in her own wisdom. The story of going from lonely to lonelier, pessimistic even as there were laughs, probably tells of the human condition more than my happy ending wishes.

Such good videos, Joan. The one about Ryan Air is only slightly exagerated. They have been trying to find a legal loophole that will enable them to have pay-toilets on board.

At the end of the play Anita was pregnant for the second time and Melanie had switched from God to booze but a lot was left open. The one review I read before seeing the play, in the Times Literary Supp, said that the casting was inspired, the acting superb but that the original play was in need of a good editor who could tighten it up a bit. Does that help?
