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.

Think Goodwill Industries does well by the poor?  Fact is, they do WAY BETTER for themselves, to the point where America's Best Christian, Betty Bowers, thinks they're ripping off the christian playbook a bit too well!  Have a look for yourself:…Continue

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

A great afternoon yesterday. Went to see "Out of Africa", a performance of music, dance and song from Kenya. Exciting rythmns, very expressive dance but the singing! The least of those voices would win a TV talent contest anywhere in the world. The best were sublime beyond my power to explain.

This doesn't require an explanation.

Joan, I couldn't open the Jelly Roll Morton link. Thanks booklover, lauren, Ian and tony. Great stuff.

My brain took a vacation today. Not productive at all.

The Doha negotiations aren't going well.

Democrats finally attacked climate change deniers.

Talk of 6°C rise in temp by the end of the century is more common, that's the temperature of the Permian extinction (worst ever).

So your images and music were welcome indeed.

Hugs

Hoping the best for you, Patricia.

Just been to see a film, "Searching for Sugar Man". For those who don't know, it's about an American singer-songwriter called Rodrigez who made 2 albums in the early 70s that flopped - except in South Africa where they sold about ½ a million and his songs became anthems for rebellious, white youth. He never knew that and the record company pocketed the money. Interesting film and worth seeing.
