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

I understand that 'Selfies' are popular. Photographs are different than pictures. Photographs mean more maybe because it takes more thought and care than everyday snapshots some kids take with abandon.

Kathy,

A photo book is better to look at than a bunch of pictures on a computer.  Power Point  images aren't the same as a real photograph. I have some books of photographs that go back to tin types. I don't know who the book of tin types came from. The are probably from the early to mid 1800's.

There is something about a book that seems to be more rewarding to look at (if they are photographs), or read  if it's text than something on a computer.

Randall,

What is the best, or most interesting  food you ate in your travels?

I understand that (U.S.) Southerners traditionally called old recipies receipts because they were passed on - received.

Comment by kathy: ky on May 31, 2017 at 7:52am
Joan, I'm a photo taker. Problem is I have hundreds of them if not thousands. And they are bulky, heavy and take up a lot of space. But sometimes we sit as a family and look through the years....
Comment by Randall Smith on May 31, 2017 at 7:11am

Okay, Joan. Here's the only photo of me taken on my camera. Plus (maybe) a view from the top.

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 30, 2017 at 7:09pm

Ian, your photos give me a whole lot of pleasure! I am not able to travel now and find going with you on your trips gives me a boost and I live through your scenes. I love the photos with you in them; you look as though you enjoy traveling as much as I did. 

Randy, I look forward to seeing your Tuscany photos and hope you will be in some of them. 

I generally don't take photos with people in them and I live to regret it. I had so many wonderful experiences the 20 +- years I traveled, and I have very few with family, friends, and new acquaintances in them. I can't go back and recapture the faces, I can find The Great Wall of China and the scenes in Costs Rica.

Thank you both.

Randall, I think a selfie or two, if you're on your own is all right.The pics of me here were taken by someone else.Otherwise, yes narcissism.

It's a bit quiet around here. I hope people aren't ill.

Lovely photos.

Comment by Randall Smith on May 30, 2017 at 7:23am

Thanks for sharing your photos, Ian. I would share some of my Tuscany pics, but a) I can't decide which ones to add, and b) it takes too long to download.

Of the 75 photos taken, I'm in only one. I noticed so many tourists taking "selfies"! To me, that's narcissism.
