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.

Spud, what a wonderful photo, "To Nom? or Not to Nom? Some photographer caught a keeper with this one. Thanks for sharing.

sk8eycat, thanks so much. This woman tells her story with a lot of personal observations helpful to the newcomer on the block. I am fortunate to have found mine before it began to spread.
Ladies and gentlemen, do have your regular exams.

Joan, you may (or may not) enjoy reading this blog:

Terri Luanna (Robinson) daSilva was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer in Nov. 2011, and she seems to be doing just fine. Has a great attitude, and is going in to NYC for reconstructive surgery  next week. She's 38, and has a 3-year-old daughter.

Her father is one of my favorite fiction writers, and I learned about her blog on his web page.

My cancer team fleshes out nicely, a young woman surgeon from Iran, a young woman oncologist from India, and next week I meet the rest of my team. These women teach better than any one I know. They told me what happened, what will happen and we forecast fast, total and quick recovery. 

A new adventure awaits.

Melinda, yes I put it on Steph's Birding page.  I'm there now, catching-up on who knows how many pages.  Somehow my "follow" got turned-off and I just realized that there hadn't been any bird post for a couple of months, and knew that couldn't be right.

Booklover, thanks for the amusing and cute picture of all the cats looking out the windows.  I've saved it.
