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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

Yay!  Our ballots came in the mail!

There were some interesting ballot measures, too.

Speaking of windmills, my county (in Indiana) has a controversy raging on whether to permit landowners to have them built or not. I'm not sure who has the final word--zoning comission?

I've found a prayer I can get behind. By Chuck Lorre:

A nonpartisan, nondenominational prayer for America
God,
Please make this election be over soon
Amen

Now and again a cartoon says more than a philosopher.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on October 19, 2016 at 12:32pm

Thanks for the link, Ian. I always remember Summertime Blues from the Live at Leeds album.

Camus siad something about autumn being a second spring where all the trees are flowers. A nice thought.

Bertold, I remember The Dave Clark Five too. They were a bit of a joke among some music fans but I liked them at the time.

My inspiration for the bass and the notion that bass players are cool is, of course, the late, great John ' Thunder Fingers ' Entwistle of The Who. While the other 3 in the group were leaping about and wrecking things, he stood stock still and played a storm. Heard but not seen much in this clip.

I like the fall colors from Chris and Loren.  We don't get much of a show here.  Wrong kinds of trees for the most part.  Lots of Elm.

Chris and Loren, those are beautiful views.

Carl, nice summary of leaf colors.  I can confirm the ginkgo and maple, mine are changing color now too.  Also some odd ones, persimmons can be orange, red, or yellow.  Pawpaws are a nice yellow.  I have a plum with nice red leaves.

The Great Lakes Theater Festival presented Sweeney Todd a couple years ago, and it was the most memorable and powerful play among many outstanding productions I've seen at the Hanna Theater.  Here's the opening:
