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.

Great news, Ian. Wish I was so fortunate. Then again.... (!)

About the Australia image, what is the difference between a photo and a visualisation or a compilation?

"This is a 3D visualisation of the fires in Australia. NOT A PHOTO. Think of this as prettier looking graph.

"This is made from data from NASA’s FIRMS (Satellite data regarding fires) between 05/12/19 – 05/01/20. These are all the areas which have been affected by bushfires.

"Scale is a little exaggerated due to the render’s glow, but generally true to the info from the NASA website. Also note that NOT all the areas are still burning, and this is a compilation."

~ Snopes,  by Anthony Hearsey, “an image maker who specialises in photography, retouching and creative imaging,” which was compiled from NASA satellite data collected across the span of a month."

What does this mean:  05/12/19 – 05/01/20?

Australia! What horror! Refugees from fires, floods, famines, diseases, political enemies, etc., and where will they all go? Surely, our nation will have refugees from such enemies and we will continue to be a beacon of light to those forced out of their homes and nations in spite of the sociopathic rantings of POTUS!

“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me:
I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”
― Emma Lazarus

Ian, your news of a "romantic" relationship sounds splendid!

May you experience mutual care for each other,

that you feel relaxed and yourself with your partner,

that you have clear communication between you, 

that you experience the joy of seeing, hearing, smelling, and touching each other, 

and that you share a commitment that strengthens over time.

Have a good time, Ian!

Comment by Patricia on January 11, 2020 at 11:11pm

All the best Ian.

A milestone week. After a break of nearly 9 years, I've begun a relationship of the romantic type. It's with someone I've known slightly for a while but now things have taken off. Very nice indeed.

I'm not donating to Australia, because I'd rather use my limited resources to fight the cause. I donate to the Sunrise Movement and Bernie.

Right now, 9:16 PM, just north of Philly, it's 67.8 degrees. Our heat has been off all day.

The weather's been a bit cooler and less windy in SE Australia.
