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

A lot of wind/rain/hail/sleet/snow in Denmark this weekend and a big freeze predicted overnight. There'll be chaos on the roads as all that slush turns into ice.

Just returned from a couple of days with my daughter and son-in-law. Very pleasant it was too. Chatting, eating and some art exhibitions. Last time I was there I thought I felt some tension but that seems to have lifted now that he's finished university and has a job: press secretary to the Cypriot embassy. He now rubs shoulders with some prominent people socially but also works 12-hour days sometimes.

I was too late because the parents thought dancing was ungodly, but I did a lot of rhythmic hugging without them knowing. A+lso ungodly of course.

Comment by Loren Miller on November 22, 2015 at 7:18am

Joan, I think of myself as having a modicum of rhythm, but I can't dance a lick.  Can enjoy it, though!

Dusting of snow on the ground this morning.

Yes, I got about 4" of snow yesterday. Since it was the 21st of Nov., my grandmother would say we'll have 21 snows this winter. Should I keep track?

Wow, Joan! Lots of damage. All those big, beautiful trees.

It is bitterly cold here, some snow and more perhaps on Tuesday of next week.

It's beginning to look a lot like Winter Solstice.  Lots of snow overnight and today.

Ruth, "it's gonna be a bright sunshiny day!"

 

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 21, 2015 at 2:28pm

Loren, I remember those dance scenes so well and tried my darndest to emulate them. I ain't got no rhythm.
