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.

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

I had my eyes checked the other day. All good except for cataracts forming. To be expected at my age.
Spent a couple of hours with my 3 grandkids yesterday. Holding the 2 month old baby was a special treat. He was taking me all in, smiling and "talking". A real charmer.
C-c-c-cold this morning, -4 on my thermometer. The wood burning furnace is cranked up full throttle.
Last night's Democratic debate was the same ol' rhetoric. At least they stuck with the issues. Nothing "birther-like".
Happy Martin Luther King Day.

I just watched the movie The Imitation Game. The story of Alan Turing the man who helped break the Enigma Code (helping to end WWII) and is later prosecuted for homosexuality.
An excellent movie.

Great sign, Bertold!

I feel for Michael and his family. Loosing someone so young is heartbreaking.

My sympathies go out for Michael and family. Sounds tragic.

Leonardo's profile sketch needs no signature to know it's one of his.

Michael Penn, one of our members, will attend the funeral of his grandson, Austin Lusty, this Saturday at 11 AM.

Sorry you suffer from traveler's disease. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 15, 2016 at 10:52am

I have not seen this before, the patterns laid out so systematically, A draw by rectangles guide. Can't capture the essence that Leonardo can.
