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 myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Oh am so very relieved to learn that these pieces of statuary were replicas. with rebar, no less.

Carl, your very good news and having more energy and feeling better just reveal how lucky we are to live in this age. The sunrise is prettier and the sunset a nice invitation to rest in quiet. The day can hold so many wondrous things. Sleep it away if that feels best.

That is how I got through chemo.

I'm glad to hear you're feeling better, Carl! That makes waiting a lot easier!

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on March 3, 2015 at 1:03pm

Carl, so glad to hear you're experiencing some relief in the midst of your waiting game. Hang in!

Randy, thanks for shout-out.  My dialysis treatments have caused me to feel SO much better.  I'm still going back and forth with the cardiology department regarding heart issues.  It appears my heart problems may be a bit more severe than originally thought. I'm waiting for see if more testing is warranted.  As I've been saying for weeks and weeks now, taking care of my heart issues is the last hurdle to jump before getting my kidney transplant.  Unfortunately this part of the process is dragging on and on. How naive I was thinking I was going to have my transplant this past December or January.  Oh well.  It will happen eventually.  I'm just glad I'm feeling better while waiting.

Thanks Randall, I do hope that's true. And I remain disgusted by ISIS. I took this pic in the British Museum. That one will be safe for some time.

Comment by Randall Smith on March 3, 2015 at 8:30am

Chris, if it will make you feel any better, I just saw on TV last night that most of the works destroyed by ISIS were replicas, made of plaster and rebars, etc. The real artifacts are in Bhagdad. Let's hope that's true.

Carl, glad to see you up and about--at least on the computer!

Comment by Plinius on March 2, 2015 at 12:45pm

Thanks Carl!

Very good and chuckle-worthy, Carl. How are you?

Here, Chris.  This is for you.  I hope it can brighten your day.
