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.

"The Lady in Purple" rides again!

Comment by Patricia on November 11, 2019 at 2:03pm

Thank you, Joan.

If its purple, its mine, & I am known all over town because of it.

They may not know my name, but I'm known as the purple lady everywhere here.

Don't know where they get ''lady'' from though.....hahahahaha.........

Gratefully, you have feelings of belonging with atheists, Patricia, and I certainly gain pleasure from counting you as my friend. I love your "purple" with the imaginative ways you express yourself through color. The amazing things you can do while in your purple motorized chair undoubtedly makes an impression on the neighbors. I remember you taking me on the terrifying trip with you via video, going about your shopping, crossing busy intersections, and cruizing along, fearlessly. Your pluck impresses the hardiest of observers. 

My life is richer for having you as my friend!

Randy, how are you feeling? Ready to take on the Middle East? 

Comment by Randall Smith on November 11, 2019 at 7:02am

Oh, Joan, you're such a hoot!

And thanks, everybody, for your well wishes. I feel better already!

Ian, while looking for the Antamapantahou group, I ran across this toe-tapper:

"Téir Abhaile Riú"

The instruments are typically Irish/Celtic and the rhythms jar my body out of my seat. 

Irish musical instruments I saw used: 

Stringed instrument: ”tiompán”

Drum: ”Bodhrán”

Drum stick: ”tippers” or ”cipin”

Spoons: ”Bones”

Irish dancers 

Flute: a simple ”conical-bore” wooden instrument used by common folk 

Hammered dulcimer: téadchlár

Irish Penny Whistles

Ian, come dance with me!

Ian, the group from Greece that put on the puppet show are fantastic. I looked them up and found this jewel of Greek humor. 

I searched by Duck Duck Go and found this treasure:

Randy, I suppose you know all the treatments that moms and grandmoms have used over the decades and are trying them all. 

Do get well, really fast, and have a great trip. I look forward to reading your adventure story when you return from the Middle East. 

Comment by Patricia on November 10, 2019 at 2:26pm

I meant ''feeling'' as if I belong....I just don't, & never have.

Yes, I've changed things up, over the years, but the ''feelings'' are just not there.

The closest I have come, is in atheism, but I'm still very uncomfortable around most people.

Comment by Ian Mason on November 10, 2019 at 2:24pm

Wise and positive thoughts, Joan as so often from you.
