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.

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

I saw no sample photos on that link, Ian.

We had to put our heat back on, after being off for  ... was it two weeks? I feel bad for the wild birds and flowering trees caught in these fluctuations too, k.h. ky.

I understand Autumn has brought no relief to Australia.

Thanks, Ian.

Yes, Happy Spring to all.

Surely, good will triumph over evil, although I wonder, especially after the Bush/Cheney years. I wonder who Trump would choose for VP--another Sarah Palin? Perish the thought.

Comment by Loren Miller on March 20, 2016 at 6:21am

Do you suppose that Donald Trump understands that, if he is elected president (Please, NO!), he becomes the leader of ALL of the United States, not just those who support him at his rallies, but those who protest against him?  Does he get that dissension is at least as important an element of democracy as agreement is?

The rather obvious answer is no, and I doubt Donnie is even aware of that.

Happy Vernal Equinox.

Yesterday I went to an exhibition of the Danish press photos of the year. That was a sad experience. 90% of news photos were pictures of refugees. There were some lighter moments though.http://www.aros.dk/besoeg-aros/udstillinger/2016/aarets-pressefotos/

Ruth-Joan, I've been trying to stay away from the news because it is depressing. But I can never stay away for long. A couple of days is all l ever manage. Maybe we just have spring fever and it's to early to really gear up.
Temps are fluctuating wildly. Last week we were at 80° tonight we'll get down to around 30°. There goes the plums again. The tree is sitting in full bloom :(

Ruth, you have good reason to be a bit depressed for a few days, and I join you. Prospects do not look good for a healthy future for our nation and for the Earth. If the worst case scenario develops into reality, we can only hope to be a voice of freedom and justice in a freedumb and unjust world. 

In the meantime, I will do all I can to educate people about the reasons our monetary system is corrupt, what needs to change, and the steps to establish a more humane life.

What with our wonderful US politics and the planetary temperature spike, I've been a bit depressed for a few days.
