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.

Oh! Yes! Patricia, however, there is something about keeping track of family, those who came before us, and those who come after us. It is drama, at times, and other times comedy. Some family members lift us up and some tear us down. Not all families perform the same functions, however, I observed violence over many generations as if we inherited that factor in our blood. I have to keep reminding myself that violence is a learned behavior. 

For you, meeting your scion for the first time, you will find some interesting and exciting similarities and differences. Was your birth family a quiet, gentle one or a loud and raucous one and how does it compare with your new-found off-spring? Do both of you with red hair have the same or different temperament? 

Your adventure in discovery will surely keep you interested and occupied in your retirement years. 

My very best wishes go with you and your new-found offspring.

Feels a bit like a soap opera at times, Joan.

Ian, the profound problem of getting 27 nations to agree on forward, backward, or maintain a steady flow of time when time is a construct of man's making and crazy-making, at that. After all, we could have time measured in a system of 10-hour days with 144 minutes each, or 240 hours with 6 minutes each. It is all relative!

Humans observe time zones just as skillfully as we observe political boundaries.

Patricia, your story is a page-turner! Thank you for sharing it with us. I appreciate your feelings of stress/enjoyment! The physical and personality similarities must be exciting to learn!

Debates going on everywhere by the sounds of it.

Comment by Ian Mason on November 3, 2019 at 12:45am

The EU is debating the issue of clocks going forward and back. The problem is getting 27 governments to agree on things.

It feels strange, Plinius, a bit stressful, but at the same time its also quite enjoyable. I'm finding out she has some of my traits as well as some of the same physical issues....lousy teeth for one. She's a night person, prefers her own company, didn't fit in easily, reads in bed, played flute in school band, loves animals.

Comment by Plinius on November 3, 2019 at 12:14am

I thought so, Patricia, you need a lot of time catching up. Enjoy yourself!

Comment by Idaho Spud on November 2, 2019 at 4:48pm

Randy, I agree it's madness.  Especially for a morning person like me.
