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.

Men who challenge men to stop violence

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

What a magnificent journey you have planned! Herculaneum holds a real fascination for me. The haunting photos of the dog of Pompeii and human victims come to me from my childhood. The beauty of the area gives only a hint of the suffering of those days long ago.

A small correction: I'll be staying in a small town near Sorrento on the bay of Naples. There'll be outings to Paestum, Pompeii, Herculaneum, Vesuvius, Amalfi and Naples. Will return replete with history and pizza.

I am also grateful I don't have a TV and exposure to all the attempts to be funny about non-belief. Frankly, I have come to enjoy the antics of AronRa, Seth Andrews and Matt Dillahunty

Have fun in Naples, Ian! Don't forget to take a ride in the funiculare.

Let's hear it for Depends! One of the side effects of ageing, or chemo, or radiation, or broken ribs, or abstructed bowel is Depends! I don't know what the cause, but I am ever so grateful for those diapers for the aged.

Ian, I am impressed, both of the marathon and sobriety. Good for you! 

Comment by Ian Mason on May 14, 2015 at 11:57am

I am. or will be soon. Off to Copenhagen tomorrow and then on to Naples on Saturday. I will be thinking of you though.

I think I can't go on holiday, but it IS quiet here! I have some six weeks of teaching to do and in the meantime I try to learn more about bad knees.

Everybody on vacation here?

I heard on the CBS evening news last night that the percentage of non-religious Americans has risen from 22% to 30% in the past ten (I think) years. They actually used the words "agnostic" and "atheist", usually taboo. So yeah, good news!!
