Hang With Friends

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.

To me, this is a big deal (though it may not be to them): two great YouTube video producers have joined forces to deliver one very powerful message on an important subject.  TheraminTrees and QualiaSoup (brothers, I believe) have recently released a…Continue

The myth of religions

Started by Joan Denoo. Last reply by Joan Denoo Feb 16. 3 Replies

The creation myth of civilizations instructs men to dominate, to conquer, to go forth and multiply. No reasonable person would pay attention to such a god. No hunter-gatherer receives such a senseless message from wise elders.However, that idea…Continue

How did I miss Mindy's birthday? Happy Birthday--today (20th) I take it.

Yes, I concur with all the wonderful things directed to Joan, a most remarkable, and never boring, lady.

Mindy, have a great day with your family.

I'll join in the group hug! Happy birthday, Mindy! Thanks for the compliments,Joan - I hardly feel I deserve them - but you make me feel good! Happy spring days to all of you!

Felaine has a way with finding really cute pictures, and this one is just right for your celebration! A very happy birthday, tomorrow! 

Sorry about your thumb looking ugly, and yet you type well. I am surely glad that you can stay in touch as you heal. 

Gee, I don't know if I am uncomfortable with compliments. It seems I do a lot of writing about dreadful things and hope my optimism and pro-action shows through! While current events distress me, I know there are solutions that we can use to make this incredibly wonder-full planet healthy.

Thank you Ian, I am very content with my life, even as I have grave concerns about the directions of the economic, political, and religious trends today. All these are human made and can so easily be changed. 
That said, life is very good for me.

Joan, from what you've written here during the past couple of years you have a happy, fulfilling life. You love and are loved. You are active in your own life and the life of others in a positive way. Nothing can beat that.
