Hang With Friends

Location: Earth
Members: 849
Latest Activity: on Wednesday

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.

Went into the chat room last Friday night, for the first time in a while, and learned that Mequa passed away. I had been good friends with him for a time, but we had differences and stopped talking back in the spring of this year. I knew however,…Continue

Thanks for the ice flowers, Patricia!

booklover, tazered cat made me laugh so much. Ice flowers are interesting; causing ozone depletion -have to learn more about that. Thanks for all your sharing, everyone. Nemo is snowing softly here, so far only a couple of inches accumulation. We had to cancel some plans till next week, when it's expected to get up to 54°. What a change. Did you all read that the expected El Nino didn't appear, and they're calling the long in between La Nada. Do I hear a faint echoing hollow laugh?

awesome pictures everyone! I love them Ian and booklover and Patricia and Grinning Cat! Makes me smile.

Ian, violence in the home is always harmful. One of my boys at the boys ranch had a tiny little mother who regularly beat her big, gnarly, track-driver husband. He appeared helpless to protect himself or his children.

Patricia, I didn't know about ice flowers so thank you. They are stunning.

Hope Eve Ensler can convince our GOP to join in One Million Rising.  They won't even vote for the Violence against Women Bill.

Love the vegan zombie.

Comment by Grinning Cat on February 8, 2013 at 2:12pm

Thanks for the smiles and kitties, and on a serious note, to Joan for telling us about One Billion Rising.

About zombies -- apparently a few are vegan:
