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.

It's amazing what you discover when you go looking for something you had no idea you'd find.  On an impulse, I pulled up Eric Whitacre's website to see if he had created any new pieces.  It would seem that he has: a song cycle called The City and…Continue

Have you noticed that much of the discussion in families and with friends, in the print media, on TV, and now on the internet is in the Passive Voice? Many people whine, complain, gripe, accuse, blame, call names, ridicule, grumble, bitch, rebuke,…Continue

Something Beautiful – Nathan Phelps & Seth Andrews

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 10. 7 Replies

And it is beautiful, too, indeed, I think some of Seth Andrews' best work.  Interesting point: rather than Seth's dulcet baritone doing the narration, this piece presses Nathan Phelps' deep bass intonation into service, bringing a different flavor…Continue

Ha, Escher would have liked that one, Ian!

So you stormed back to Denmark, I hope you had a nice trip. We get lots of fresh air with this high wind. Succes with you jammed computer! Mine has also been just repaired after the second big crash in four months - I still keep my fingers crossed when I start it...

Hello all. I've been in England for a few days plus had a "jammed" computer.

Yes, Chris. The west European weather has been variable of late. As I understand it, it's a matter of whether the Siberian cold front dominates or the Atlantic wet-and-warm. Sort of Russia versus America for the prize of Europe. Seems familiar. Anyway, the British weather has chased me across the North sea and it's due to storm in here soon.

Good night, friends.

I've had the same problem, with black video boxes. But I thought it was my computer and didn't report it to Brother Richard.

BTW, it's 67 ° here in Bensalem, PA. We opened the back door for the breeze. Happy Jan 30th.

Thanks Grinning.  I like "Our story in 2 minutes".

Melinda, I think there may be a problem with the A/N website lately.  For the past month or so I've been getting black boxes and videos that won't play as well.  It usually corrects itself if I refresh the page. 

Good morning, everyone.  I've been a bit absent from here lately.  Away from my computer because I've been working a lot, but I always catch up with all your posts and updates when I'm back in town.  Great hearing from all of you.  :)
