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.

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

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

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

I went to the Halloween parade this evening here in Chicago and then for Mexican food afterward, so I missed the trick-or-treaters by my house (if there were any.)  There have been very few in past years.  Although all the kids and parents were out visiting the local store-fronts up and down the main street were I live.  That seems to be the new tradition these days....skip the house by house and door to door and instead get candy from reliable commercial businesses, not from some legitimately scary neighbors.  It also saves a lot of hustle up and down stairs and waiting for a doorbell to be answered.  **sigh**

There are very few children living in our neighborhood anymore.  Instead, parents with humongous SUVs drive huge groups in from who-knows-where, and my attitude is that if they can afford the gasoline for that kind of thing, they can afford to buy their own candy, and host their own party.  Or donate to the Red Cross.

Not only am I feeling bats tonight, I'm feeling Grumpy...and he doesn't like it!

Heh!
