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.

Hear, hear! (Here, here! And everywhere.)

Good, Joan! I'm with you on that.

A good plan, Joan, wring in the new!

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 1, 2020 at 2:02am

Plinius, a perfect greeting for this year!

2019 feels like I have been run through the wringer. 

WRING OUT THE OLD 

Hoping, dreaming, fantasizing, wishing, and hallucinating doesn't change things.

Teaching works only if a person wants to learn. 

Reasoning falls on deaf ears of the biased. 

Crying, whining, begging, and pleading wastes energy.

Working alone proves to be a worthless effort. 

So, what can one do to bring about positive change? 

1. Find others who share my thinking. 

2. Form coalitions of like-minded people. 

3. Identify common goals. 

4. Explore options. 

5. Develop action plans. 

6. Determine how success will look and feel.

WRING IN THE NEW

Happy New Year to everyone!

I still suspect that, from a political standpoint, 2020 will be one of the CRAZIEST years on record.  I just hope it ends with the ouster of the Orange Nightmare!

Happy New Year, everyone!
