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.

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

There's an old saying among psychologists - "Anyone who isn't paranoid these days is crazy."

Comment by sk8eycat on May 19, 2015 at 3:18pm

Sounds kinda paranoid to me.

Chris - you were asking about this recently. Here's an article on the homeschooling movement here in the States

It took about a minute to get any sound. May be my headphone connection. Love them muppets!

Chris, I'm glad to hear you don't have to have your knee replaced yet.

Ian, my daughter just informed me that she and her hysband were gong to Denmark (and Iceland) later this year. Naples and surrounding region is on my bucket list. Enjoy your trip.
Comment by Plinius on May 15, 2015 at 3:48am

A fantastic trip, Ian!

I've just been to the hospital and was told that a new knee is not immediately necessary. Injections and medicine first. I'm glad - I have other things to do than work at a long and painful revalidation.

What a magnificent journey you have planned! Herculaneum holds a real fascination for me. The haunting photos of the dog of Pompeii and human victims come to me from my childhood. The beauty of the area gives only a hint of the suffering of those days long ago.
