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.

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

The following showed up this morning in my YouTube daily feed, and I have to say, it just charmed the socks off of me.  This is what animation really can do in the hands of a creative and skilled team.  Really, it's what animation has done for darn…Continue

We need to focus on the institution, not the individual priests. Practice and policy; show me the church manipulated the system so that these guys wouldn't have to face charges, show me they put those same priests back into parishes time and time…Continue

Thank you, Spud!

Lovely pic, Chris!  One person happy is a goodness.  TWO people happy, made more so by each other, is something truly wonderful!

You're looking good Plinius.  Nice picture of you & partner.

Thanks, and I am happy! Having a transgender partner doesn't solve all your problems, but it's fantastic to see Luca settle in a happiness she never knew.

Chris, I loved seeing a photo of you and your partner. That must have been a lovely day! You look happy!!

Thanks all! It was a perfect goodbye to summer; the last warm sunny day. After that we got storm, thunder and rain, very enjoyable too!

It seems that the Catholic priesthood succumb to more than one temptation, money as well as boys.

Catching up is one of life's pleasures, Randall.

You both look well, Chris. I hope your legs survived the walk round the zoo.

You look great, Plinius!

Looks like a pleasant day, Plinius.

We visited the Rotterdam zoo with a friend. She made this picture of us.
