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 Playboy Interview: Richard Dawkins

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Chris on Sunday. 14 Replies

I suppose it was the news that Playboy magazine was returning nudes to its pages after a year's hiatus that sufficiently perked my curiosity to check them out again.  I hadn't looked at Playboy since perhaps 2008, when I began to recognize that I…Continue

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

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 11. 1 Reply

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

   It has been 6 month now since I signed up for Atheist Nexus membership. The past year has been sort of a bi-polar wave of emotions for me. I hope I wasn't offensive to the folks on here and I think I have been but I don't know to who. My desire…Continue

Men who challenge men to stop violence

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

I like the lilac paint very much Patricia, it must be very restful to have a bedroom like that. My favourite colour is a soft shade of green with not too much yellow in it.

Yesterday I took some hours off and walked in the park with a friend. Today I'm covered in after sun cream, burned even under my t-shirt and bra. And there was even light clouding!

I love that version of "Round Midnight"!  It's what I call "Late Night Jazz," the kind of thing I used to listen to back in the 50s  and 60s....when the DJs had sexy voices, and all that. 

Whatever happened to jazz radio stations?  I live close enough to Los Angeles to pick up practically everything, and no jazz, no classical, just a polyglot of Armenian wailing, Spanish, and Come-to-Jesus stations in all languages...both AM & FM.

Hello, Friends.  I hope all of you have a groovy weekend.  For those of you here in the U.S., most of you will probably have Monday off work.  Enjoy!  Here's a little mood music.

I'm a blue person.  I love all the different shades of blue.  It's a very calming color.  I also like the very light and muted shades of green.

Loren, Bill Evans is a fine pianist, indeed.  Yes, you should explore his music.  I have his "Conversations With Myself" album.  It's very wandering and dreamlike.  Here's the Wikipedia article about it.  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conversations_with_Myself

It's a very interesting album.  It's just solo piano but with three overdubbed tracks that were recorded by Evans on three different days.  Yeah, it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I like it.  Here's a sample.

Spud, my walls are all Mission White and I use bright colors in carpet, stuffed furniture and throws. When my kids were still at home, Cary chose a brilliant gold that knocked your sox off, Criag chose very dark chocolate with gold trim and Laura chose a paint color that matched the raspberry stain she got from eating raspberries and wiping her hands on her T-shirt. The fellow at the paint store did a nice job of matching. 

When they all moved away, I painted everything white. The fellow who helped me paint liked my kids color schemes better than mine.

Welcome back home, Ian.  Glad you had a good trip.  I'm curious about the monkey mosaic.  What era is that from and in what type of building/setting?

Comment by Joan Denoo on May 23, 2014 at 10:41pm

Patricia, I like that shade of lilac, just enough color to offer a restful place with a nice contrast with white. 

Carl, enjoyed "Patricia". pleasantly rhythmic.

The room looks good Patricia.

Patricia, congratulations on your good mammogram report.
