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.

A ridiculous claim should be recognized as such as a matter of course, shouldn't it?  Shouldn't It?!?  What happens if that claim is so imbued and integrated into society over hundreds if not thousands of years that it has been taken as TRUTH…Continue

Whether as atheist, agnostic, gay / Lesbian or whatever, the process of coming out has been a repeated topic of discussion here on Atheist Nexus and for good reason: it is at once a necessary yet potentially supremely painful process, depending on…Continue

If God Exists (DarkMatter2525)

"Practice makes perfect."  That's the concept, isn't it?  Work diligently at something, especially something you enjoy and are adept at, and your skills sharpen, your judgment improves, and the product of your efforts demonstrate that improvement. …Continue

Hi, Tony.  Haven't seen you in a while.  I hope you're well.  I really like the Japanese art video.

Patricia, Santana?  You sound like one cool lady!  :)

They were wildly popular and had a very unique sound.  I didn't know that were still performing as a group.

Chris, I'll have to scan and post a photo I took in Zaandam, outside of Amsterdam when I was there in 1998.  It contains windmills, a cat and a grey, blustery sky.  Beautiful

Really nice pics Melinda and Chris. Thanks.

Joan, I saw a documentary on Danish TV last year on thr subject of depression, a debate between a retired consultant psychiatrist and a younger psychologist. The retired consultant bemoaned modern society, saying it was too "horizontal" and claiming that a "vertical" society where everyone knew their place was more conducive to human happiness. What an addled, bitter old fart, eh?

Donny and Marie: I've never understood why they didn't marry each other. It seemed like a match made in Heaven (or Utah)
