Hang With Friends

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.

It's amazing what you discover when you go looking for something you had no idea you'd find.  On an impulse, I pulled up Eric Whitacre's website to see if he had created any new pieces.  It would seem that he has: a song cycle called The City and…Continue

Have you noticed that much of the discussion in families and with friends, in the print media, on TV, and now on the internet is in the Passive Voice? Many people whine, complain, gripe, accuse, blame, call names, ridicule, grumble, bitch, rebuke,…Continue

Something Beautiful – Nathan Phelps & Seth Andrews

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Loren Miller Nov 10. 7 Replies

And it is beautiful, too, indeed, I think some of Seth Andrews' best work.  Interesting point: rather than Seth's dulcet baritone doing the narration, this piece presses Nathan Phelps' deep bass intonation into service, bringing a different flavor…Continue

Ian. I have a favorite teapot that I bought 30 years ago (and never used).  I've been meaning to take some photos and post them here, but I've just been too "out of it" lately to do anything productive.  I WILL pull myself together and get that little job done. I think you'll like it.

In the meantime, here's a little something some friends gave me because they know how cat-crazy I am:

Catue of Liberty

It's difficult to read the book title; it's Of Mice and Men

FA, beautiful. Love the Fifth Dimension. Such perfect pop. What I really like by them is the Laura Nyro songs they covered, like 'Stone Soul Picnic', and 'Save the Country'. Such beautiful harmonies.

Kit-Tea is cute.

Good day everyone!  Did you enjoy your extra hour of sleep?  I certainly did.....and I needed it as well.

Tony, thanks for the music.  I'm constantly listening to music.  It's such a great mood enhancer. 

This song ALWAYS makes me feel good, so I thought I'd share it with all of you today.  Hope you enjoy.

You're welcome, Felaine. I shared them because they turned up at the right time for me too.
