Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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.

Such Lyrics!

Hello Friends,I was ruminating a bit today on my sixty-some years existence. My mind went back to teenage years when I first figured out religion is not only obnoxiously loud, but also nothing I wanted anything to do with. Truly. I knew by age 15…Continue

There's no getting around it, Atheist Pig is fast becoming my fave secular comic, and as evidence, I refer you to the following.  Jesus and Mo had better watch their respective asses, 'cuz they got a porker coming up on the outside, and I'm pretty…Continue

Hi everyone,It was almost a half-century ago, at age 15 or so, that I encountered one of the more important influences in my life: a crazy group of poets/musicians who called themselves The Fugs.They had a huge impact on me in that, though raised in…Continue

Some William Blake to Ponder

Started by Donatien Alphonse François. Last reply by Donatien Alphonse François Apr 25. 6 Replies

Hello all,I'm new here, and so hope this isn't old hat. But, I just had to point you toward a marvelous poem by William Blake in case you've never read it. Despite his sometimes heavily tinged biblical references in his other art and poetry, this…Continue

Just had a phone call from England. My step-mum has been rushed to hospital, "very poorly", to be put on a ventilator. I may be booking a flight very soon. That's both mums going downhill in a short space of time.

Melinda, that cat is DEMONIC! Steph, yours is so superior/scornful in its expression.

I always start to look with suspicion and distrust at people when they don't freak out when an animal is in danger - so thank you, Joseph Corder, I'm happy you care. And glad your cat is all right!

Joan, there's not much I can add that hasn't already been said by others:  you're very much appreciated here and fondly thought of.  Consider me as one more person in the chorus.  

I, too, love the pictures of the Auroras.  That has got to be breathtaking to witness in person.  How lucky we are that we're intelligent enough to comprehend and appreciate the endless beauty and wonders that accompany our existence.

sk8eycat and booklover - those are great. I took them for my collection of images.

sk8eycat, I haven't been around in a while because a 1 year old cat is a hand full!! I didn't know that I could be such a mother hen!  Earlier today a dog chased Buddy up a 9 foot tree.  He couldn't turn around and climb down the tree.  I was at the bottom of the tree and he fell and I missed catching him!!  He hit the sidewalk and didn't land on his feet!!!  He took off and I freaked out!!  I called my wife at work and she came home immediately.  Before she did I found the cat under our neighbors' house!!  He's ok but I flipped out!  I believe he will sleep the day away and be ready to go this evening!!
