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

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

Chris, that's a mind-boggling video from NASA.  When the earth-size representation was shown on the screen I said to myself out loud, "Wow....."   The size of our universe and everything in it is overwhelming.  Thanks for sharing.

Melinda, LOVE the quote.  So true.  Consider it stolen and now in my possession.  :)

Booklover that is such a sweet story about your mom paying for things for your family and how you pay for things for your kids - so sweet.

I really agree with the higher power quote - that's so true. They are hypocrites.

BTW, Steph, I checked out your photos from the Whopping Crane Fest.  Love the Tri-colored Heron.  Beautiful.  Where was this located?  I know Southern Texas and South Padre Island are big birdwatching places during the winter months.

Sorry, folks, but I just couldn't resist.  Three more gems from "Hair" the musical, movie version........

I totally understand, Melinda.  My parents have done such much for me throughout my life, so it's indeed a pleasure to be able to do the same for them.  And that makes me happy as well.

LOL!!!  I used to work with a girl from Birmingham (Alabama), and she pronounced my "real" name as "Aline."  One day I missed rehearsal, and she was all over the place asking "Where's Aline, where's Aline?"  The choreographer heard her, misunderstood, pointed to the ice, and said, "The. Line. Is. Right. Over. There!"

I sometimes wish reincarnation was real; I'd like to come back as the most spoiled calico EVAH!! (Spayed, of course.)

Yes, Felaine, that's a clip from the movie.  I just watched it for the first within this past year.  Great music!!

Comment by sk8eycat on February 25, 2013 at 5:50pm

Flyer, is that a clip from the movie?  I never saw it...a friend and I went to the live show at the Aquarius Theatre in Hollywood.  It was an amazing production, with the revolving stage and all.

Then I bought the original Broadway cast LP, and played it till it was worn out.  I should hunt up the CD...
