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.

It's amazing what you discover when you go looking for something you had no idea you'd find.  On an impulse, I pulled up Eric Whitacre's website to see if he had created any new pieces.  It would seem that he has: a song cycle called The City and…Continue

Have you noticed that much of the discussion in families and with friends, in the print media, on TV, and now on the internet is in the Passive Voice? Many people whine, complain, gripe, accuse, blame, call names, ridicule, grumble, bitch, rebuke,…Continue

Something Beautiful – Nathan Phelps & Seth Andrews

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 10. 7 Replies

And it is beautiful, too, indeed, I think some of Seth Andrews' best work.  Interesting point: rather than Seth's dulcet baritone doing the narration, this piece presses Nathan Phelps' deep bass intonation into service, bringing a different flavor…Continue

Nice to see you back, Felaine. Nothing wrong with a little hibernation when you need it. Rest well and bounce back up.

Thanks sk8eycat! Nice to have you back.

I love avocados. Yummy.

Cute cartoon booklover.

PS: I wish I could e-mail each of you and avocado or two; they're kinda small this year (the tree is as old as I am....poor thang.), but they still taste better than store-bought ones.  It's a classic, old-fashioned fuerte'...finest kind.

Happy guacamole'!

Yes booklover, the road rage. I have to remember to say what I am commenting on.

I'm back from spending the holler-daze quietly with the chubby Duncan cat.

I'm exhausted, ache all over, and I want to sleep for a week.  (spent most of my private time watcheing MSNBC and getting p*ssed at the foot-dragging, knuckle-dragging clowns in the House of supposed Representatives.)

I'll be back.  Belated Hippo Gnu Ears, everybody!

Yes, the fetch cat is so funny.

I love seeing the posts here.
