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.

degrading love — part one (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat Nov 22. 11 Replies

Love is by many considered among the highest of positive emotions.  Yet when love of the type offered by deities is examined, something seems to go seriously wrong.  The love of Yahweh seems less a gift than a demand, not so much beneficence as a…Continue

Carl, not my style, but it IS "feel good" music. Thanks for sharing. Hope you're doing well. You sound happy enough.

Loren, a great interview! I love problem-solving films and this one sounds like problems from beginning to end. Savage's office looks like mine, floor to ceiling, wall to wall books.  Andy Weir seems like a nice fellow, interesting the way he wrote his books. I look forward to the film.

Thanks, Sk8eycat.  I really enjoyed the Jimmy Buffett song. 

I've been listening to a lot of Spanish and Portuguese ballads the past couple of years.  They are so beautiful and emotional.  I built an entire Pandora Music Radio station around them. 

The video I posted earlier, Canta Corazon (Heart Song), was sung by Mexican international superstar Alejandro Fernandez

I hope nobody here minds, but here is another version of the same song.  This is sung by Peruvian Gian Marco, who actually composed the song.  It's performed at a slower tempo with a Reggaeton shuffle feel.  I think it's great.

That works big-time, Carl!  Molto grazie!

Carl, I love Mexican ballads...and mariachi music, and a LOT of Caribbean music.  This is a "Thank you."

Four stars, Pat on your Gay Agenda LOL.

Warning! Browsing through Atheist Nexus Facebook photos is addictive. I just liked 75 photos there.

Carl, gracias por la música, mi amigo.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on June 23, 2015 at 4:39pm

I hope you're all having a great day!

If not, here's a little feel-good music to cheer you up.
