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.

I like the sound of Steven Weinberg's voice. He has a calming impact on me as I rush to get my home of 41 years ready to sell and plan and put into motion the new garden at my daughter's home. My home is full o empty boxed quickly filling with the…Continue

Hope everyone's afternoon is going well. Happy Halloween falls on a Friday this year. :)

Felaine, I couldn't find your image either and found it through your recommendation "Cats, Books, life is good". Looks like it would be just what I would like to have for my winter-long book reading. I love that cat.

Ian, Try Google Images,,,,"Cats, Books, life is good" by Edward Gorey.  That's where I found it....besides in my closet.

Xmas, dear Xmas. Yes, a veritable barrage on the senses by  commercial enterprises. I'm usually tired of it by mid November. Nice seasonal pics too, Carl.

The "belief" images are very good, short and to the point. Thanks.

For some reason, I can't see Felaine's T-shirt.

It's been a slightly longer weekend here in Europe as the clocks are turned back an hour. That's a bit of a pain in the bum if, like me, you're working that night. Some of the old people I look after can't cope with the change and get very restless at 6 a.m., right at the end of the shift. Oh well, it's only once a year although I've never understood why it happens.

On the other hand, there is December 21 or 22 to celebrate the shortest day of the year, the beginning of the lengthening of the day. Some call it the beginning of winter, others call it the mid-winter day. Whatever, I like the thought of more daylight each and every day until June 20-22.

I love that one, Mindy!

I have been saying for decades that, "I respect your right to believe what you want (or what makes you feel good), but I don't have to respect WHAT you believe."

I also tell buybull thumpers that I read fantasy fiction for entertainment, but I never, ever believe it.

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 27, 2014 at 3:44pm

HOORAY! I was able to retrieve your comment of an hour ago, Mindy. The one, "You have the right to believe whatever you want!" Surely glad I didn't miss this one. 

Comment by Plinius on October 27, 2014 at 12:07pm

Thanks Randall! Some things are really too difficult for me.

Comment by sk8eycat on October 27, 2014 at 10:23am

Maybe it should be "HalloThanksMasBowl"  As millions of football worshipers gather in large numbers on Jan 1st.

Chris, "youth in Asia" (in crank mail) was what the writer thought was euthanasia!
