Hang With Friends

Location: Earth

Latest Activity: 21 hours ago

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.

Mindy, I am so glad to learn that you feel "fine" and enjoying your enforced rest. Will be looking forward to learning the report results. It is really hard to not know the facts. These are going to be good! And as to taking up space and time ... space and time very well spent.

Thanks for reminding me Ian!

Ian Mason  I love your poster, may I post it on Facebook with attribution to you, or anonymous?

Less knowledge = stronger convictions

I just posted your poster on Facebook with attribution to you. I know I will get responses from it. I haven't gotten responses from the other pieces. Maybe everybody has turned me off. Oh well, the information is in the ether!

Loren, a recent conversation on GLBT revealed to me how sexually deformed I am, and it comes out of those Puritan influences that came from that dear widow-woman in 1632 who brought her 10 year old son to the Colonies and paid for their transport by agreeing to come to the New World, marrying and becoming breed stock ... that is what the contract stated. My grandmother Denoo was a powerful teacher of Puritanism. 

So, will you please put on something about sexuality in your wonderful creation?

Here we go ... nothing fancy, but I think it sorta works:

Mindy, that deserves to made into a proper POSTER ... and I may go to work on the text of it shortly!

A/N is working fine for me, Chris.

I love that picture, regular Mindy!

The AN-site is so very slow! I have to wait minutes before a page turns up. Is that the same for you or has my pc turned xtian?

I've seen that happy child before Mindy, but it's a great reminder.
