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

Bon appetit, Felaine. Unexpected suprises like that are lovely and you deserve a treat.

A little "reality" for the season:

If I were 40 years younger, I'd grab Mike Wilson and run for Vegas in a "New York minute!"  He's kind, smart, adorable, and divorced.....   The kind of man I looked for all my life and never found.

Felaine, a very moving story of your blind cat, Mr Devil and your Dad's passing. I have not heard of hydrostatic shock from jumping from great heights. I suppose Mr Devil jumped a lot, or was it a few terrible jumps? Dreadful to watch a cat become disabled in that way. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 24, 2014 at 2:32am

Felaine, I am so very pleased you received this gift from your real estate agent! Your great spirit shines so brightly, others want to share with you.

I cry with you in pure joy at the care and compassion of those around us.  

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 24, 2014 at 2:23am

Loren, I like the Herb Alpert's Let it Snow. A great winter song. I've enjoyed everything you share with us. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 24, 2014 at 2:18am

Carl, I enjoy the Kronos String Quartet, Songs From Liquid Days, and saved it. 

I like the photo of you in 1983. You must have very special memories of your musical years, too. 

I couldn't remember which sax you played and the piece I selected had them all. How could I miss!

You are busy! Writing four pages while I sleep!

I'm so glad you got food, Felaine! And I love the unsugared cartoon, Carl!

Good timing on that post, Loren.  Chicago is under a winter storm watch for tomorrow.  Thundersnow with thunder and lightning has also been predicted.  I remember the first time experiencing that as a kid.  It's quite bizarre to hear and see lightning flashes during a blizzard.  Concrete details of tomorrow's expected storm are quite evasive.  Anywhere from 2 to 7 inches of snow, if any.         

BTW, I'm a huge Herb Alpert/Tijuana Brass fan.

Not certain whether I've posted this before or not, but still ... 'tis the season!

Comment by Pat on December 23, 2014 at 6:49pm

Felaine, I'm very glad to hear about your good fortune. As to lentils and split peas, I'll go with the lentils. While I am a meat eater, I don't use it in lentil soup. Carrots and onions are good for me. I'll have to think about cinnamon and allspice as to my blood glucose. Might be a good idea.
