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

Very soothing music, Loren. Nice blend of voices..

Sounds like a wonderful party, Chris.

Joan, how's your health nowadays?

K.H., I'm wondering how you used a dog for a xmas tree? Or was it just an excuse for not having one? 

Comment by Plinius on December 27, 2014 at 2:49am

That was a nice xmasparty, and totally different from what we expected! Brother-in-law didn't come, for he had ordered his taxi for next Sunday - that's what you get with CVA brains. We'll see him tomorrow. Instead we went to neighbours who had invited some people they hardly knew and us. No one had family that could or would come, no religion involved, just six people feeling good together, drinking wine and playing games. Instant family without the bickering. I've never felt so good at one of the standard feasts!

Ruth, I am sorry to learn of you and your husband's illness and hope you feel well soon. 

Ian, hope you fully recovered from your "cold and stomach problems" and ready to take on the last celebrating of 2014.  Winter cold and reading books go together. 

Randy, I am impressed with your exercises. Each muscle group seems to be covered by your routines. 

Loren, a very nice performance of blended voices. I couldn't understand the words and found this helpful.

Mindy, what fun ... a sleepover at the college age. Great sounds of laughter and wailing, if I remember those years of mine. Your son must be in paradise.

A little post-Yule/Solstice/whatever something for you ... from the pen of Eric Whitacre and a lovely performance by Musica Intima:

Dec. 26: Happy Boxing and Kwanzaa Day! 

Every day is "boxing day" for me--hitting my punching bag for exercise.

Comment by Ian Mason on December 26, 2014 at 1:09am

Sorry to hear that, Ruth. I hope you feel better soon.

I've spent a couple of days with a cold and stomach problems - blocked nose and bum the opposite - but the worst seems to be over so I was back at work last night. Just one for night to get through and then I'm off until New Year's Eve. The winter has arrived in Denmark with temperatures down to minus 12 c at night and 0 c during the day so I'll be doing a lot of reading. In fact I've just finished "Sapiens" by Yuval Noah Harari. I don't agree with all of it but it's well worth reading.http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/sep/11/sapiens-brief-history-...

Thanks Ruth, and get better soon!

Ruth, sorry to hear you and your husband aren't feeling well.  I hope you have a speedy recovery.

Comment by Grinning Cat on December 25, 2014 at 10:22pm

Felaine, those li'l critters wouldn't bug me one bit!

Ruth, I hope the two of you feel much better soon!!
