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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

Glad to hear it, Patricia.

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 13, 2017 at 10:56pm

Patricia, I apologize, I thought you were the one in a wheelchar, that you were recognized because of its purple color, and that you shared a video of riding to town and back on your wheelchair, managing crossing heavy traffic and shopping for what you needed along the way. I wonder who I am thinking of? 

Comment by Grinning Cat on December 13, 2017 at 10:35pm

Glad to hear you're getting around and doing so well!

Comment by Patricia on December 13, 2017 at 10:29pm

Thanks all.....marathons?....no, but I'll take a good brisk short walk, so ya better git outta my close up way......hahahaha!

Comment by Loren Miller on December 13, 2017 at 9:16pm

We'd better watch our asses.  Next thing you know, Patricia is gonna be running marathons! [GRIN!] All the best to you, Patricia!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 13, 2017 at 8:58pm

Wow! It's been six weeks already, Patricia? Glad you got a good report. 

Comment by Patricia on December 13, 2017 at 4:17pm

I never did use a wheelchair, Joan. I used the walker for about 2 weeks, but now I walk without any aid, & I walk up & down my street as we have no snow yet, & I use our stairs. This works better for me than the boring, dull, physio, & the doctor approves of that. A walk has always done more for me than rote exercises. My limp is much less & that's not supposed to begin easing until 9 to 12 weeks post-op. He also said my flexibility is good enough that I can start pushing the boundary of the 90 degree rule, which I have already been doing. I am well ahead in the recovery game. Not so bad for being almost 71!

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 13, 2017 at 4:08pm

Excellent news, Patricia! How are you feeling now? Are you still needing to use the wheelchair? 

Comment by Patricia on December 13, 2017 at 4:00pm

Thanks....me too. I will however likely have to have the left hip done in a year or so, he figures.....

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on December 13, 2017 at 3:48pm

Good news, Patricia!

Happy b-day Tom (or should I say the honorable Mr. Sarbeck?)
