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.

A bit of a problem with my afternoon. My daughter turned up only to go again. Her Grandfather is back in hospital and the doctors have told the family that there's not a lot more they can do. It's only a matter of time before his body just gives up.A life of hard work has taken its toll. Very sad because he's a smashing bloke.

Not to mention pro lifers killing an abortion doctor and maybe a secretary or two here and there for Jesus.

Mindy, EX-cellent!  (and.... Ain't it da trooooffff!)

It's the same bunch who call themselves "pro-life," but believe capital punishment is effective....)

I know about the solar bike lane, but I fear it's no more than a show project - in climate change projects the Netherlands have slid down heavily in the last six years - thanks to our rightwing government.
