Hang With Friends

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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

Beautiful dog, Randy! 

K.H., seriously?  Is there a study that shows actual prejudices against black dogs?

She's beautiful Randall. I'm glad you got a black one. Have you read the study on the prejudice against black dogs? Interesting.

She looks like good company, Randall!

Dot's "selfie"! All tongue and slobbers.

Thanks, Joan! I've lost all my relatives but I've learnt to find my family in people I happened to meet, and they have taught me a lot of things I needed and they brought happiness! Part of my family is here on AN. ;-)

I love the ice sculptures, Carl!

Chris, I am sorry to learn of your brother's condition. You lost a brother all those years ago. Your comment, "Nice character traits dissolve in alcohol" tells a sad story. 

Your gentle, kind, caring character reveals your very different track, and I am so very glad you are with us. Your a real treasure.

Randy, glad to learn that Dot is settling in and you get along. Looking forward to photos.

Carl, a very interesting way to commemorate WW I soldiers and victims. I see lots of cameras taking the scene for posterity.

I happened upon this article about an art installation put up in Birmingham, England to commemorate the soldiers and victims of World War 1.  I thought it was so moving and thought-provoking that I wanted to share it with you.  This is what I love about art:  it visually displays that which words cannot fully express.

Maybe they'll still let me out of here. The final twelve haven't been pulled yet. We're down to the attorney's letting us go.
I want to go.
