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.

worshipping narcissists (qualiasoup & theramintrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Idaho Spud Jun 3. 1 Reply

They're all around us: people who perceive the world as revolving around them and will go to considerable lengths to make it so: narcissists.  Such beings have been with humanity, I suspect, since humanity emerged from the gene pool.  Even worse,…Continue

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

Carl and Joan, Jane Olivor reminds me of Karen Carpenter. PBS has been running a fund raiser segment on The Carpenters. Poor Karen was a tragedy, but she had a lovely voice.
Happy Daylight Savings Time beginning, although it'll take me several days to adjust!

Love the dog show Carl : )
Joan, hate it about the accident. Deer will run into a moving vehicle. A deer hit my car a few years ago and the deer didn't even lose it's footing. I drive a small car and wasn't driving fast so the deer may have been OK. My car wasn't. Over six thousand dollars in repairs. I was very lucky it wasn't totaled.

I'm not a music enthusiast and I enjoyed "The Right Garden" sung by Jane Olivor from her Stay the Night album. The lyrics led me to another of her songs. She and Johnny Mathis make a nice pair.

Sorry, Ian.  The video must not be available in all countries.

It's just a nice song I like from 1978.

Perhaps you can search and find a copy that works for you.

Can't see the video I'm afraid, Carl but having a good weekend all the same. I hope you are too.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 12, 2016 at 3:58pm

Will do, Donald.  I hope you fare well. 

Comment by Donald L. Engel on March 12, 2016 at 3:51pm

We''re supposed to have a big windstorm tonight, so ask me again tomorrow.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on March 12, 2016 at 3:21pm

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!

Watched the pics again, Loren, they're beautiful!

Comment by Plinius on March 11, 2016 at 11:58pm

Sorry about your step-mother, Ian. I hope she'll feel as comfortable as possible.
