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 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

Winter Driving, Preparing for the worst

Now that we enter the time the Celtics called Imbolc, a pagan celebration of the beginning of spring and season of new life, I ran across this video on preparing for winter driving. It offers reasons for each thing he puts in his vehicles to be safe…Continue

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6, 2017. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Thanks Carl, the portraits are wonderful! Make up some more things, I wonder what comes up! I was thinking on this oldie, and it fits your description exactly http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3CHi_9sxj0

If there is an entity in existence that truly is the human soul, it's music and art.  --Me  (I just made that up!)

Speaking of the Bach cello suites, I know I've posted this before but it's been awhile and it's so beautiful and worth repeating.  Now that I think about it, I wish I had remembered this for the recent International Women's Day.

Thanks for the cello suite, Joan! I grew up with Bach and can still sing along with his Kaffee Kantate. I read about Justin Bieber just now, and I'll forget it a.s.a.p. - non-famous people are much more interesting to me. Early Saturday here: we'll be busy with our two patients today - a beautiful spring day! Have a good time!

Gabriela does have a unique style.

I found some of Tina S's acoustic guitar work, but so far, it's from 2 to 5 years ago when she wasn't as good.  It looks like she's practiced more on the electric, and so is more amazing on it.

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 21, 2014 at 4:06pm

I would like to hear her play an acoustic guitar without electronic amplification.

Comment by Idaho Spud on March 21, 2014 at 4:05pm

Tina is remarkable.  I actually accumulated a tear listening to her, probably because of her talent more than the music, but I don't dislike the music either.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 21, 2014 at 3:50pm

Spud, I agree about Tina S. I turned off the sound on the second listening and watched her right hand fingers, the third watching I watched her left hand. She is remarkable. I wonder what the sound would be if she were on a fine guitar without all the electronics?
