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.

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

Such Lyrics!

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

Thanks Kathy!

Thanks for that story, Loren! I'm going to use it.

Aversion therapy, you got that right, Ian.

I hope everyone had a good weekend.

Comment by Ian Mason on November 29, 2015 at 10:14pm

Overexposure, Chris. The same songs on the radio and the same muzak in all the shops. It becomes aversion therapy.

I thought the following was pretty good.  You can click on the image to enlarge it.

Chris you did a great job.
Comment by Plinius on November 29, 2015 at 12:49am

And I really hate Dutch songs - how did we do that, Ian?

Comment by Ian Mason on November 28, 2015 at 10:47pm

Ella has a great voice but so has Adele, in my ears.

Ruth, exposure has a great influence. When I lived in England I couldn't bear the Xmas music that I couln't escape. Now I enjoy a good choir singing carols. It's the Danish songs that blare from every radio and shop that I can't stand.

Great collage, Plinus. I like "I think, therefore I'm dangerous" the best.

Sorry, Joan. I avoid Holiday-themed music. Even secular stuff. Too many years of it. Think I'm allergic now.

Comment by Randall Smith on November 28, 2015 at 9:04am

I'm with you, Joan!!  No contemporary female vocalists can measure up to the queen of scat. And, of course, today's pop(ular) singers make me cringe. Adele? Ugh.

Of course you can use it, Ian! I made it from internet images.
