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.

concealing abuse (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Sep 23. 3 Replies

We think of institutionalized child abuse and for many of us, the natural reaction is to think of the Catholic Church. Certainly, their guilt is beyond question, even as the headlines of the Boston Globe early in 2002 and the more recent news…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

Melinda, impatient cat is a real treasure.

Patricia, funny hair story.

Until I looked-up the lyrics, I thought she was saying "It's only 3 instead of five", which didn't make any sense.  But she really says "It's only 3 inches wide."

Thanks Grinning Cat.  At first I didn't care for that video, but the beautiful song kept me watching.  At the second viewing, it had me.  Love it!

Darkly cute, GrinningCat. Thanks.

Serious whimsy, with a wonderful accordion soundtrack and even a couple of feline appearances:

What a wonderful world - Playing for change

Watching these beautiful faces with sweet smiles, their voices blended with Grandpa Elliott's and singing one of my favorite songs, "What a wonderful world". 
I like your photos today, from the Simpsons to kitties and T shirt. It has been a wonderful day.

Wow, I got three pages behind. I had to pass on that Simpsons joke. I assume the Obama photo is photoshopped? Apt use. Thanks all!

Patricia, I love the Black Cat Analogy.
