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.

degrading love — part two (TheraminTrees)

Started by Loren Miller Jan 1. 0 Replies

TheraminTrees set up religion with his left in Part One of his treatise on how religion demeans and degrades the value of love.  Here in Part Two, he brings in a devastating, "Mike Tyson" right, which negates and invalidates any claim that either…Continue

The day finally arrived.  Ken Ham's Ark Encounter opened on 7 July, 2016 ... to something a bit less than Disney-sized crowds, and more than a couple dissenting voices!  Seth Andrews has gathered a quartet of significant participants in the protest…Continue

Carl, I kind of took a liking to the creature with all the bells, but I would paint on a clown face with a red ball nose, and jingle as I made a big racket and peered in windows. No sinister demon for me.

Yes, I especially love the tree as well, Joan.  Did you check out the other photos in the links?  Some are downright creepy.  The images of nightmares. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on October 24, 2013 at 2:51pm

Carl, perfect! May I join you? I like the green tree myself.

I'm telling you.....if I had to be religious, I would be a pagan.  Check out these AWESOME pagan costumes. 

Many, many more in these two links:

Napoleon, great video! Fun watching trunk, ears, tai,l feet and body respond to rhythms. The other elephant had a fancy dance step! Wonderful! 

Steph, Your cat has good taste!

Napoleon - cool videos - I have a wildlife group if you would like to post them there.

Carl - love the Peanuts cartoon.

Booklover - really cute pic.

Carl, I very much like "Has it ever occurred to you that you might be wrong?!" My favorite line. Am reposting

Napoleon, a beautiful film of a cat with completely retracted claws, comforting a fussy baby. I imagine the lovely cat comforts Mom and Dad as well, when they feel fussy.
