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.

Thanks for the group hug Joan.  I like that pix, especially because Eeyore is happy in the middle of it.  I relate quite a bit to Eeyore.

Congress is a very good name for a large group of baboons.

It's morning for me :) Hope everyone slept well (when you get up and tune in again) Lovely poem, Tony and thanks for the pics one and all.

Is something bothering you, Ruth? Hope a good night's sleep helped.

Thanks for the feel good pictures, Ian, Tony and Joan. I really needed them tonight. And your poem is perfect to tuck me into bed, Tony. Hugs to all and Sweet Dreams.

I'm off as well.

    To where ever your night dreams take you,

    From the sands of ancient Egypt, to the red

    Sands of Mars. From building the Great Wall,

    To spending your dreamtime in quiet, peaceful, memories.

    The time of freedom lies in your slumber, warm, inviting,

    Loving gossamer visions, fleeting, half remembered upon waking

    To a glorious dawn.

Hugs to all. Goodnight.
