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.

Ian, a very special photo of you during your mountain trip. This is a keeper!

Comment by Ian Mason on January 29, 2018 at 10:52pm

Left out the pic. The mountain trip was the best part.

Comment by Patricia on January 29, 2018 at 1:51pm

Never had the desire to visit anyplace like that.

Comment by Loren Miller on January 29, 2018 at 12:55pm

Ah, well, so much for the Marrakesh Express, eh?

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on January 29, 2018 at 11:57am

Ian, sorry you didn't enjoy your trip more. I've heard similar things from people visiting Morroco. (Maybe it's lost some of its charm since Bill Borroughs and the gang hung out there. Or maybe they liked its lack of charm.)

Comment by Ian Mason on January 29, 2018 at 11:49am

That's me in the Atlas mountains.

Comment by Ian Mason on January 29, 2018 at 11:47am

Ah, Morroco. Number one on my list of places to NEVER EVER visit again. I now have a greater understanding of women's complaints of harassment, of being unable to go public places without being bothered. Rabat and Fes were not too bad but I hated Marrakech. It was a blessed relief to escape into the mountains. It's an even greater relief to be back home.

Berthold,  the one by Dan Mintz is perfect. The others are great too. 

Comment by Patricia on January 27, 2018 at 1:43pm

Yeah, haven't seen Steph for years.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 27, 2018 at 12:22pm

AtheistTech (used to be Cane Kostovski) ask me about Steph S.  I've been wondering why she stopped participating in Atheist Nexus.  Does anyone know?
