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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Patricia, I have a whole new appreciate for you and your life's journey. With your wit and wisdom, you will always come out a winner. Especially appreciate the scooter, its license, you wearing purple and giving off that air of self-respect and dignity. Please include a photo of you and your husband riding your scooter. So sorry to learn of your husband's stroke and its consequences.

Ian, take advantage of the senior discount if you can get it, the consideration may not be there in 8 1/2 years. 

On the other hand, it may feel better to be an "adult" not a "senior citizen". So, I guess it is best to do what works for you.

Ian, is this most recent piece also a light? I love the shape. All these interesting shapes arouse my curiosity. The Sputnik must have a story behind it. I am puzzled by the dragon ... is it flowers, or beer cans or ? "Sculpture by the Sea", Aarhus" led me to this intriguing site:

sculpture by the sea aarhus denmark. It answered my first question about the piece that looked like an imaginative  lamp post. Thanks for the treats!

A lttle selection from "Sculpture by the Sea", Aarhus.

I will survive - the next 8½ years until I DO qualify for senoir discount.

Dear Ian, life isn’t over just because you qualify for senior discount movie tickets.

Joan, I find Eva Cassidy’s version of Imagine too sad. To me it’s a song of hope.

Patricia, I you’re a great role model. Love your license plate and scooter décor. If I need a mobility scooter, I'd like to have one for bad weather too. Like this
