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.

Patricia, that's interesting that you got in the paper without knowing it, and not being asked.  From that distance they probably thought no one could recognize you, but I'll bet a lot of people you know would.

 A few years ago, on a slow-news-day sunday, a newspaper photographer caught me riding my recumbent tricycle, but he asked me if he could publish it.  I didn't notice him, and he ran after me to ask me.  Said he had a hard time catching me even though I was going uphill and not pumping hard.  : )

Mindy, love that image about the truth being worth it.

Your fanclub was hiding somewhere, Patricia! What beautiful surroundings you live in!

And I love the TRUTH-picture, Mindy!

Patricia, a great scene of beauty and the reality of getting around in a northern winter.

I like both boxing day posts, as well as steeling our holiday.

Comment by Ian Mason on December 28, 2013 at 10:27am

I thought it was funny too, Feliane. Not the original meaning of the expression "Boxing Day" but a humorous deveation.

A good weekend all :-)

Thanks, Joan, for setting us straight about the original Pandora.
