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.

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Aug 4. 2 Replies

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

Daniel - in Cannon Beach have you been to a great restaurant called Lazy Susan's? It's kind of a cramped, funky old munchkin house, but they have incredible ginger-pear waffles.

I had plans for the day but ran out of steam half way. I visited the Whitney museum, the High Line park and got my hair cropped. In the evening treated myself to a 3-course dinner. The NY cheesecake immobilised me completely, so I spent the rest of the time finishing off a Stephen King novel. As I've walked almost everywhere for the past week, I thought I could allow myself some rest.

Ian, what was your adventure today? I'll bet you are too tired to describe your day and I understand. However, I do enjoy your travelogue.

That looks like a really good place to relax, Daniel. Beautiful and soothing.

Comment by Thomas Murray on August 27, 2017 at 7:36pm


That beach looks like Seaside, Ore. I think it was in 1973 or 74 when I visited Seaside, Ore.I had a great time there and I am not sure but cars were allowed to drive on the beach and camping too.

Daniel, a great photo of you and those full of beautiful scenes of the ocean and shore. Rest! Recuperate! Renew!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on August 27, 2017 at 7:19pm

Daniel, gorgeous photos!  Looks like a beautiful day.  I always find beaches relaxing and contemplative.    

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on August 27, 2017 at 3:11pm

I felt the same, Spud.

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 27, 2017 at 11:45am

Bertold, too bad it's satire.  I wanted to emigrate to Iceland.
