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

Qiana, I love the "I was" quote.  Saving it.

Randy, what a glorious trip. While in Thessalonika think of me digging in a Neolithic site looking for artifacts of that ancient era. 

Happy travels!

I am home, in my lovely old garden. I intend not to leave this treasured place alive. I am refilling the bird feeders and baths, meandering through the pathways, finding surprises at each turn of the course. A patch of red here, a spot of white there. Oh wonder of wonders, it all grows!

Randy, what a great trip!  Enjoy your time together in Greece.  I would love to go myself and experience the rich culture, scenery and food.

Make sure you take part of that day in Athens at the Acropolis, Randall.  That is a can't-miss!

Comment by Randall Smith on April 28, 2016 at 7:10am

Thanks for the compliments (farm and "kids").

Emily is the youngest of my 3 daughters. My oldest, Valerie, is flying in from Honduras (where she lives) tonight. She'll spend the day with Emily tomorrow. Then, the next day (Sat.), the two of us will fly to Greece. After a day in Athens, we're going to Thessalonika to hike across the northern mountains, visiting national parks, monasteries, etc. We will then cross over to the island of Corfu. This is an eleven day trip sponsored by the Sierra Club. I'm very excited to do the trip, especially with my daughter.
