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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

Ian, I just finished watching the internet 1987 version of "Quartermaine's Terms" with John Gielgud. It is outstanding, leaving me with questions about the characters. I assume Simon Gray's play will answer those questions; What happened to the characters Melanie and Anita?
I would love to see the London version with Atkinson.

That's the one, Joan, with Atkinson playing the part of St John, a rather sad and lonely man who tries to be nice to everyone but just gets ignored or trampled on. One of the great comic talents.

Joan, I love Rowan Atkinson also. Here is one of my favs, 'A Warm Welcome'.

I am not familiar with this play, however I am a great fan of Rowan Atkinson, for example:  Rowan Atkinson Amazing Jesus

I did find:

Quartermaine's Terms, With Edward Fox, John Gielgud, Eleanor Bron, Peter Jeffrey, Clive Francis, Paul Jesson and Tessa Peake-Jones.

Quartermaine's Terms

Oh! the treasures of spring! 

William Wordsworth:
"The Tables Turned"
Up! up! my friend, and quit your books,
Or surely you'll grow double.
Up! up! my friend, and clear your looks;
Why all this toil and trouble. . . .
Books! 'tis a dull and endless trifle: 5
Come, hear the woodland linnet,
How sweet his music! on my life,
There's more of wisdom in it. . . .
One impulse from a vernal wood
May teach you more of man, 10
Of moral evil and of good,
Than all the sages can.

Love the leaping cat :-)

An interesting and slightly profitable experience, Melinda. Hope you enjoyed the lunch.

Have had a couple of good evenings out with my daughter. First Rowan Atkinson in the tragi-comedy "Quartermaine's Terms" in London and then Eddie Izzard's one-man show in Århus. Our laughing muscles have had some good exercise.
