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.

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

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Good one Bertold.  Gods do want us to beg (and suck).

Patricia, on behalf of your neighbors to the south, I apologize that you get our television and commercials.

LOL, booklover! You started my day with a chuckle.

That "musical bath" experience sounds interesting, Ian. Thanks for sharing.

Glad to hear you're handling your situation quite well, Flying Atheist. :)

Glad to hear you're doing well, Carl.

Have a nice tri-generational evening, Mindy.

Have been to the hospital today for the non-invasive part of a prostate examination. It went fine but I'm not looking forward to next week, with probes and tissue samples on the agenda. While I was in town I went to an art exhibition, really interesting. I'm not that wild with "instalations" but this one included Thomas Tallis's "Motet for 40 voices" with each voice recorded separately and then played back through 40 loudspeakers, put in an oval shape. It was possible to go round and listen to each small part that made up the whole or sit in the middle and take a musical bath.

Carl, stay positive!

I picked up four books at my local library yest. The Hunt for the Golden Mole: All creatures Great and Small, and why they Matter, The Blue Tatto: The Life of Olive Oatman; The End of Greatness: Why America Can't Have (and doesn't want) Another Great President; and Waking up: a Guide to Spirituality Without Religion, (by Sam Harris, one of us).  I had a hard time deciding which one to begin with!

Carl, that is god news. You will whip these challenges because you have a spirit. And good doctors. And you are a good patient.

Most of the time there's a stack ´to be read´, and usually I read three or four books at a time - one for 100 % concentration, other books for relaxing and a travel book (she reads at the busstop!), and rereading when I feel not well.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 30, 2015 at 1:31am

Patricia, I've had to put myself on a self-imposed moratorium from buying books.  I have a stack of books here a mountain high that I need to catch up on first.  My concentration isn't quite up to par right now while I'm dealing with all my health issues.  I'm looking forward to the future when I can once again sit and truly relax with a book and focus on reading. 

BTW, I had a general health check-up today.  My doctor told me that I'm in good health despite my current health condition.  He thinks I am doing well and also handling my situation quite well.
