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.

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

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

Glad you're OK Mindy.  The storm was not too bad by me.  Watching the radar, it looked like the most severe weather passed just north and just south of me, leaving me in a relatively calm pocket. 

Steph, I love the cat in the food dish.  That's an adorable picture.

Patricia, there's a lot of strange aspects about the picture you posted....... 

How and why did the bull get on the car?

There's snow on the ground. 

The multistory buildings in the background indicate this as being an urban area and not a farm.

Perhaps he got loose, wandered off into the cold, walked for miles and was attracted to the warmth of a recently run car engine.

Got behind here. Summer class is really more work than I thought. I did my test on Monday. Class just flies by.

How is everyone? Joan I love the avatar that Ruth made you.

Comment by Grinning Cat on June 11, 2013 at 11:54pm

Joan, your new avatar really suits you! (No matter what some cats might think.)

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on June 11, 2013 at 10:49pm

Wow! You adopted my image as your new avatar. I'm honored, Joan.

Good quote, Flying Atheist.

booklover, I love the one huge dot picture.

Ruth did a great job of editing my bald head and giving the title, "Queen of the Universe".
And thanks to Carl for a new motto:
"Atheism is a religion like baldness is a hair color."
Comment by Joan Denoo on June 11, 2013 at 5:53pm

Ruth, that is fabulous! My new crown. 

Carl, perfect quote. My new theme. 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on June 11, 2013 at 3:02pm

Joan, your recent picture reminds me of the famous quote:  "Atheism is a religion like baldness is a hair color." 

Comment by The Flying Atheist on June 11, 2013 at 12:23pm

Ruth, you're very talented.  I love it. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 11, 2013 at 12:11pm

Carl, Chris, Ian, Lillie, Loren, Mindy, Patricia, Ruth, sk8eycat, Steph, and all my Atheist Nexus friends, thank you so much for your kind words and great support. 

I'm off to the garden with a very pretty hat to hear the birds sing their bright songs, and see all the colors of my wildlife refuge.

Thoughts of peace, flourishing of all living things, tranquility, a place of thought and contemplation reside here. No faith in delusions or  prayers to a non-being  found here, only care, compassion, commitment, a community celebration on this patch of Earth.
