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.

Joan, I like the "Hope for the future" video.

Comment by Idaho Spud on January 22, 2015 at 11:35am

Patricia, I'm saving that arrangement of roses.  I love the multi-colors.

Felaine, I'm saving that cute birthday cat in the vase.

Thanks peeps, for liking the cake.

Far too late of course, because you're awake at the wrong time! Happy birthday, Joan, I hope there's a wonderful year in store for you!

Well, folks, I am a sprightly 79 years old today! Life just keeps getting better! 

Steph, you know how much I love chocolates! A delightful cake. 

Kathy, thank you for your greeting, I like your presence on A/N, you add greatly to our discussions. 

Spud, that chocolate cake with a garden motif hits me right where the love is! How thoughtful. Your pretty green card with a Lady Bug fits right in. 

Bertold, I am very pleased you join us on A/N and you offer so many enlightened ideas. thanks for your greeting.

Felaine, your greeting with that cat and vase tickles me, as usual. You bring me lots of laughs and I am grateful for your friendship. I keep adding your name to my dictionary and they just will not accept "Felaine". I shall keep adding it until they get the message!

Mindy and Carl, I agree, Spuds' cake perfectly fits for me. I own that one. 

Ian, your bright red tulips and greeting foretell the coming of spring. It won't be long.

Joan - happy birthday, and many more, enjoying life and surrounded by your wonderful family and other significant people! (And Spud, that cake is perfect!)

Patricia, thank you for that beautiful bouquet of flowers. You pick lovely scenes. 

Carl, Claude Monet's "the Springtime" and his "Garden in Giverny" are two of my favorite paintings. So tranquil. I think of the word "equanimity" when I see his garden.

Yes, Spud.  I like that cake as well.  So appropriate.
