Hang With Friends

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

Such Lyrics!

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

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.

What lovely words Joan. I enjoyed reading your post here - and yes I am unique - there is no one else like me. Personality does come from within.
Companions are very Important.

Great pictures! Very powerful evidence of the need for nurturing. I feel great. Hope you all do too.

I love all the cute pictures posted here!
Thanks Tony, Ian, Joan, Patricia, Booklover - and anyone I might not have mentioned. I only went back 2 pages - I got behind again.
Many smiles!
