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.

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Sep 3. 2 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Aug 4. 2 Replies

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

The west of England is experiencing gales and heavy rain. The north and Scotland are preparing for more floods after being badly hit over the holidays.

Wow, Chris.  What a story about your neighbor!  That surely was an event to experience first hand. 

Joan, thanks for posting your beautiful photo.  Winter scenes are so gorgeous.  I also enjoy reading your descriptions of everyday life around your household.

Observe what is happening off the western coast of Europe, Ireland and England. 

Is there anyone living in that area that can report the weather to us?

Ten above zero degrees F when we closed up for the night, First light this morning

Early light this morning. A stunningly beautiful day with the sound of cold temperatures as we walked on the snow. The clear air had crystals that floated down as breezes wafted through the trees.

We went to a NYE party at the neighbours', and, as you say Carl,  the relationships were wonderfully enriched when our neighbour came out as a transgender, in a wig, a beautiful dress and a new name. Tears of joy when everyone saw that he/she is on the road to a better life, and great fun. It's the first time I saw a gay marriage turn into a hetero marriage.

Ian, isn't it fun to have little ones in our lives, and memories? I surely am happy living so close to my great-grandchildren. Just now, Brooklyn wants to type you a note.
