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

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

Hi Randy, yes, the summer weather is so nice to be out and enjoying the fresh air and wildlife of the garden. I don't take my computer outside this summer because it is too hard on my eye. So, to the garden by 5 AM, driven inside by the heat by noon, a little snack, a long nap, and then get to my mail and whatever commentary I have to offer. 

It is nice to keep up to date on your activities.

Great, Mindy!! I really did LOL!

Must be summertime--everyone seems to be too busy to "blog". During the day, I think of things I want to say, then forget when I get here. Sign of old age.

LOL, Mindy, the things you come up with...

Thank you all for the welcome.  The art assemblage is very cool.  If you are interested in more, give  juxtapoz magazine a look.  It is my favorite art magazine though perhaps not everyone's taste.

"Time Running Out"  This is one of my paintings.  My wife, Glenna and I are Laughing Goddess Studio.

Neat perspective, Carl.

And yeah James, take your time.

Dog Molly back home and doing amazingly well. I'm happy (but poorer).

That is an interesting perspective piece, Carl. Very clever.
