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.

Many men join in the effort to reduce violence against women and children and other men. He speaks of the need to place responsibility on men instead of focusing on women to stop violence. He offers a breath of fresh air, as do so many of the men on…Continue

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

Ian, I hope things smooth out soon. That kind of stress feels awful! I am thinking about you, trusting that you have done all you can to solve those organizational and systemic problems, not of your making. I know you have everything you need to weather the storms and find solutions that work.

Good news of your daughter's safe return. Isn't it fun, when they grow up and become great friends. There is always the parent child thing ... but there is so much more.

Melinda, Oh yes! that is what life is like! And it is great! Funny thing, when they grow up, I begin to hear my voice coming back at me. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 3, 2013 at 3:03pm
Melinda, that is a perfect label for "I'll call him 'he-did-it'"
Glad you had such a good time while your daughter came home for the weekend and grandma was able to participate!

Thanks, everyone. It's good to know you're here and that you understand. I'll try to use the frustration as an energy source for a daily work-out.

Melinda, your daughter ought to be fairly safe driving today...all the crazies will be glued to a TV somewhere watching the Stoopid Bowl.

The cat in the "he-did-it" photo looks a lot like my friend Duncan...such a handsome devil. I'll be staying with him next week, and off the net.
