Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: 4 minutes ago

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.

Happy Spring, all!

Mindy, I often have those feelings.

I've been listening to Christopher O'Riley's piano transcriptions of songs by Radiohead a lot lately.  Many of them are truly beautiful, including this cover of "Street Spirit (Fade Out)":



Please enjoy.

Took this from FB too.

 
Betty & Tim were killed in an auto accident on the eve of their wedding. When
they reached the pearly gates, St. Peter met them. They asked if they could
still be married in Heaven.

Well, let me find out if this is possible. Stay here and I will be right
back.

Six months passed and finally Peter returned.

Yes, we can do this for you.

Well, as we have spent so much time together waiting for your answer, we need
to know that if things don't work out there's a possibility that we could be
divorced?' To which St. Peter answered It took me six months to find a priest
up here...how long do you think it will take me to find a lawyer?
