Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: on Saturday

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 not a complete solution for me but it does help in these dismal times of year.

Comment by Plinius on December 17, 2019 at 5:48am

Thanks, I'm thinking about buying one for my partner...

Comment by Ian Mason on December 17, 2019 at 5:17am

It has a definite influence, Chris. It's only A4 size, is next to my PC and I get at least half an hour every morning while I go through mails, FB etc.  I just have to remember to look directly at it every few minutes to get the full effect.

Comment by Plinius on December 17, 2019 at 5:01am

How does it work, Ian? Do you feel better because of it?

Comment by Ian Mason on December 17, 2019 at 4:18am

In DK there's rain and rain with more rain on the way. I'm very glad I bought a therapy lamp a couple of years ago.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 16, 2019 at 9:56pm

So far, in my little corner, the first snow shouldn't actually happen till tomorrow. We've been lucky.

Comment by Randall Smith on December 16, 2019 at 7:12am

With 4" of snow on the ground and trees, while beautiful to look at, I'm dreading shoveling and driving in it.  One thing about winter--it makes one look forward to and appreciate spring and summer!

Another cup of coffee, please.

Very nice, Randall. And what an itinerary!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 8, 2019 at 10:32pm

Thanks for the picture, Randall. It's nice to visualize your trip a bit.

Comment by Plinius on December 8, 2019 at 8:08am

Nice picture, Randall, I'm glad you enjoyed it all so much!
