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.

degrading love — part one (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Nov 22. 11 Replies

Love is by many considered among the highest of positive emotions.  Yet when love of the type offered by deities is examined, something seems to go seriously wrong.  The love of Yahweh seems less a gift than a demand, not so much beneficence as a…Continue

Ian, I couldn't get the link but googled and found this one:

"Flee as a bird" & "oh didn't he ramble"

The first bit is "Flee as a bird" a typical New Orleans Dirge; the second part in march tempo is "oh didn't he ramble"

What a way to go!

Very funny lazer eyes! ROFL, Joan. That internet generation gap cuts close.

Future, I see you're new here.  Welcome!  That's a funny cat pic.  (Reminds me of the film, Village of the Damned)

Ah, the pleasure of waking up early to meet all of you :-)

Melinda: atypical because nothing fits neatly into one category. Plus, diagnoses can also be in or out of fashion among the experts, something that sometimes is related to the "efforts" of the drug companies.

It's been a couple of years since I had anything to do with women and several years since i drank but I still want "Oh didn't he ramble" at my funeral.

Kalliope, that is my favorite Monty Python song. I have it on my MP3, and listen whenever I feel a little down. I plan on a natural burial, you know, just a shroud and put me directly in the hole. I have let my son and family know I want this played. Will probably piss some off, but I think it is a wonderful sendoff, even though I won't be there, or anywhere, for that matter. But will let them have a smile instead of a cry.
