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.

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

I'd gladly be there, Daniel, with Joan, Ruth, and whoever else came by! (And we'd presumably get to meet Ning, too!)

Daniel, your fireplace &a setting offers such a warm welcome, how can not accept an invitation!
Thinking of you as I sit with my morning coffee and look out to my colorful garden!

I just talked with Ruth, who hasn't been online for a few days. She's fine, but her internet service (Verizon FiOS) has been out.

That's the second butt plug! We still have one in Rotterdam. The artist of that one meant to say that all free things - sex, winter solstice and a lot of other things - are heavily commercialized and turned into ways of getting at your money... I like the message!

Yes, it's gross that all the christmas crap comes out before hallowe'en, but at least here's a jolly holiday story.

Paris is in a twist because the new x-mas tree art, for some people anwyay, way too closely resembles a butt plug.

(When you see the pic, it's kind of hard to argue with the complaint.)

The rest of the H.P. Lovecraft quote - previously I'd only seen the first paragraph:

Joan, I'm so sorry... I have no idea what you're going through. You and the whole family showed Cary so much love, staying with him to the end.

I'm glad you have family to comfort you Joan.  I don't know what else to say because I've never had a loss like yours, but my eyes are leaking again.

Comment by Randall Smith on October 24, 2016 at 7:29am

Joan, indeed, I'm saddened by your loss. I take your words to heart on appreciating my family. I've often wondered how I would react if I lost a child or grandchild. It was hard enough losing parents.
