Hang With Friends

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.

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 3. 2 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Aug 4. 2 Replies

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

Here is this morning's message from Carl, "The Flying Atheist:"

Hi, Joan.
Yes, please tell everyone I'm fine. I'm sorry to cause worries. Hoping to be back regularly soon.
Fondly, Carl

Perhaps next time I'm in the US, Joan.

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 17, 2018 at 4:32pm

Ian, you look so fine! Really a gentleman!  May I be so bold as to ask for a date? 

Comment by Patricia on May 17, 2018 at 1:34pm

Yes Joan, it was getting very worrying not to hear from Carl.

Smart looking fellow, & what did you do with Ian? Hahahaha.....

Comment by Ian Mason on May 17, 2018 at 8:41am

Me, looking smart before going off to a concert of Italian arias in the Episcopalian church in Rome, St Paul's Within the Walls. While I was there I read their prayer book and hymn book. There were several points that concerned the break with the Church of England and where a change of dogma was required. How they twist and turn, these institutions to suit the political situation!

Comment by Ian Mason on May 17, 2018 at 8:34am

That's a big relief. Thanks for your effort, Joan.

Comment by Loren Miller on May 17, 2018 at 7:13am

Your footwork is much appreciated, Joan!  I'm glad to hear that Carl is okay.

Comment by Idaho Spud on May 17, 2018 at 7:10am

Joan, thanks for the good news.

Comment by Plinius on May 17, 2018 at 3:08am

Good news, thanks!

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 17, 2018 at 2:07am

Patricia, I was really worried. I imagined all the worst even as I hoped for the best. What a relief!
