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.

Whether as atheist, agnostic, gay / Lesbian or whatever, the process of coming out has been a repeated topic of discussion here on Atheist Nexus and for good reason: it is at once a necessary yet potentially supremely painful process, depending on…Continue

"Practice makes perfect."  That's the concept, isn't it?  Work diligently at something, especially something you enjoy and are adept at, and your skills sharpen, your judgment improves, and the product of your efforts demonstrate that improvement. …Continue

That made me smile Patricia.  I love the stories of incredibly stupid criminals.

Thanks, Mindy and Felaine! We even had our first day off together! Last week the two of us went (without patients) to museum Naturalis in Leiden - a museum about life on earth. A busman's holiday for partner, as he works in a museum, but we enjoyed ourselves enormously!

Chris!  What a RELIEF for you!  Take a LONG break!

Wheeeee! Today brother-in-law's apartment finally sold! Cost me another day: travelling, organizing b-i-l's transport, checking the apartment, signing and paying for the jobs I couldn't do, then to the notary, signing a stack of papers, explaining ten times over all the things that b-i-l forgets, and then organizing transport again. I'm so glad that I never have to that apartment again!

LOL, Flying Atheist. You found a new twist on twerking.

We aren't even having Turkey. When I went to redeem the coupon every choice was full of injected salt water.

I love that cat!  I hope she has a long life, but I worry about her dwarfism condition, and how she's being dragged all over the country for photo ops....
