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.

If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?

Today, I heard Seth Andrews talk about the question, "If you could rid the world of one thing, what would it be?"  My first thought was religion, but after a few seconds I decided it would be irrational or anti-scientific thinking.  That would take…Continue

I love that superbloom, Carl!

Struggling with my new pc, and I found I lost the link for that beautiful interactive wind and water map - can anyone help?

Chill out for a few minutes and enjoy the "super bloom" in Death Valley, California this year.

Ruth, you are so correct.  Just think about all the people (teachers, family, friends, authors, people around the globe - past and present, etc.) who have shaped our thinking and actions.  Not only those who we admire but those who we despise as well.  They all influence who we do and do not want to emulate.

I've always thought that a person really dies, when the last person who remembers you dies.

Many would agree with that Donald.

I see our lives as more complex and fractal, in that every act we do when alive has many impacts that ripple throughout the world. We each leave an imprint, making the universe as we know it different than it would have been without us.

Bertold, I like that, "When you die ...". 

If one has a tombstone with his or her name chiseled into it, that is all that remains, other than the memories left behind!

This and memories are all that remain of Mom.

That's a good one, Bertold.  :)

Chris, it is about time a good event fell into your lap and I know you enjoyed it. Hope your good luck comes in huge batches. I am very happy to learn that Dido is recovering. 

Randy, may you have a happy journey, great health, delicious food, beautiful sights, and interesting conversation! 

We had virtually no winter. April showers expected this Saturday. Feels very odd for February! The sun is now well above the trees and our solar greenhouse is getting some solar heat once again. All the brassicas survived. Lettuce appears to be coming back to life.

Happy traveling, Randy.

Weather service was predicting one to seven inches of snow here. That fizzled out to a light dusting on the grass only. Sidewalks are all clear.

It's been an unusually warm winter. That sure is nice but it ain't normal.
