Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 884
Latest Activity: on Friday

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.

appropriating morality (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo May 1. 7 Replies

We've all heard the claim: "Human morality comes from god."  And we've all seen for ourselves what Yahweh's "morality" looks like, from condemnations of homosexuality and the treatment of women as chattel to inexplicable sanctions against the eating…Continue

Bible Belt Atheist (New York Times)

Started by Loren Miller Apr 19. 0 Replies

The following showed up in my YouTube feed this morning, and I decided to have a look.  Turns out, the New York Times has given us a reasonably even-handed look at a good friend of ours, being one Jerry DeWitt, former bible-thumper and now a pretty…Continue

So, this morning, I was at my local coffee shop as I am most weekdays between bus runs. I do the editing on my husband's books so I had my laptop with me. My wallpaper is a picture I found online sometime back of a double helix with the word atheist…Continue

Joan, did you get the picture of Mindy that Patricia posted?

I enjoy seeing all you peeps when you were young.

Comment by Randall Smith on January 8, 2015 at 8:00am

Thanks, Joan. The same goes for you.

Ian and Chris--always good stuff. By the way, I'm going through all my 1967 "Travelogue of Europe" stuff, including my time in the Netherlands (does one say "the"?). I rode a bike (age 24). Loved every bit of your country--and the pastries!

Comment by Plinius on January 8, 2015 at 1:10am

The old pictures are very impressive, thanks!

Randy, I enjoy your posts. You report the usual things of life that give heart to your pieces and you contribute insights that help to clarify issues or enrich ideas. Please don't stop or attempt to do less. 

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on January 7, 2015 at 8:50pm

Thanks, Joan. Recalling that era in my life, I was probably thinking about where I was going to get my next sixpack of Colt 45.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 7, 2015 at 8:41pm

Bertold, a very nice looking young man in your photo, I wonder what your dreams were at that stage of your life? 

Spud, the same impression I have of your young photo, nice looking, and ready to take on the world! 

A completed education, the world just waiting for you to come along and make your mark, and it was your oyster.
