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.

Hello, friends.  There's been so much great content posted here.  I've been busy traveling, so I've had limited time to reply.  Plus it's very awkward and time consuming to reply "texting-style" from a small smart-phone.  My typing skills are better utilized at a full keyboard.  I've always said that the most valuable and useful class I took in high school was my typing class.  Who would have thought that decades later we'd all be sitting in front of a keyboard and corresponding via the internet. 

Mindy, I love the "My right to believe as I see fit" poster.  That's a keeper!

Loren, Spooky is priceless!  I love the photos. 

Chris, Poeka was beautiful.  A very pretty color.  Everyone's cat photos always make me smile. 

Here's a fun video about two women and the first time they flew in an airplane.  These two are ladies are absolutely charming and priceless.  I think this will put a smile on your faces.

Felain, just as everyone has a right to his/her opinion; not all opinions are equal.

One of my high school English teachers loved Don Marquis as much as she loved Shakespeare and "Bobby" Burns. (She spoke of Burns as though she'd known him personally.)

Miss Esther Weinstock was a treasure.

Felaine, love the Egyptian cat! Kind of like mehitabel in 

mehitabel was once cleopatra 

by Don Marquis, in “archy and mehitabel,” 1927

".... she and
i have been talking it over in a
friendly way who were you
mehitabel i asked her i was
cleopatra once she said well i said i
suppose you lived in a palace you bet
she said and what lovely fish dinners
we used to have and licked her chops"

Felaine, I don't understand "worship" either. I do have a sense of wonder, of gratitude for being alive with all my sense, and strong feelings of care, compassion, and empathy toward others, as well as I have a powerful sense of well being when those attributes come to me from others. I especially feel a sense of awe when I realize I am not a victim, or helpless, or hopeless. I have all that I need to face any challenge, even when I fail to accomplish a goal. When that sense of being resilient occurs and when I understand that what is, is (Thanks Daniel, for that bit of  wisdom). 

Comment by Loren Miller on April 15, 2014 at 6:12pm

I don't worship a damned thing ... but I appreciate my wife, my friends and my cats ... a LOT.

Comment by sk8eycat on April 15, 2014 at 6:10pm

If I were to ever worship anything, It would be cats...and/or the ocean.

I just don't understand "worship" at all.

Comment by Loren Miller on April 15, 2014 at 3:00pm

No worries, sk8ey ... Spooky will get the best of care ... and I'm tellin' the other puddy-cats to BE NICE!

Loren, DON'T tell Spooky:
