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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

OK Joan, here is Mindy at 21:

Patricia, nothing came to my mailbox with your name as the sender. I suspect you tried to send me Mindy's photo. The photo of you came to me and you and Rick look so happy and full of life. You certainly overcame powerful challenges and can still laugh.

I'm sorry I send so much bad news about the economy and politics.

Ian, those hormones raging when we graduated high school and started out into the world-of-making-a-living had two strong pressures pushing us into crazy land. My hormones raged too, and like so many others before me, I left school to marry and had children. It seems we have bodies that have decision-making tasks other than the brain. Some have foot-on-a-peddle brains. Some have hormone-brains. Some have thinking-brains. 

Interesting how it all turns out. As for myself, I have a splendid life at this point. Everywhere I look there is joy coming from it. It seems that I came of age at the apex of human existence. There will be very tough times for future generations.

And you look good too Mindy - or was that a pic of your daughter?

Yes Randall, the Netherlands or Low Countries.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 8, 2015 at 10:40am

Joan, did you get the picture of Mindy that Patricia posted?

I enjoy seeing all you peeps when you were young.

Comment by Randall Smith on January 8, 2015 at 8:00am

Thanks, Joan. The same goes for you.

Ian and Chris--always good stuff. By the way, I'm going through all my 1967 "Travelogue of Europe" stuff, including my time in the Netherlands (does one say "the"?). I rode a bike (age 24). Loved every bit of your country--and the pastries!

The old pictures are very impressive, thanks!

Sadly Mindy, your photo didn't come through. Spud will you please send her photo to me?
