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.

I discovered a brilliant new way to avoid  having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two…Continue

An association between the amount of fruit and vegetables people ate and their happiness? Yes indeed. People who ate 7 portions of fruits and/or vegetables a day were the happiest.…Continue

@ sk8eycat   Thanks for the bit of history about Yip Harburg.  You prompted me to read his Wikipedia page.  A very interesting person, indeed.  We atheists sure are in great company.

O, wow!  How purrfect!

Did you know that all the lyrics and a great deal of the dialog for "The Wizard..." was written by Yip Harburg, a lifelong atheist?  (He wrote that classic scene where Toto exposes the god-like wizard as a fraud. Among other things.)

Hi Mrs Anthony-Gardner. Sorry that only after one year I am honouring your invitation. Your group seems very interesting. I will browse it a little bit. :-)

sk8eycat, thanks for sharing that beautiful video. :)

Ruth, I hear Mom say my name. 

I took care of her off and on for the last 9 years of her life (she made it to 87, despite metastatic cancer, and various other ailments after she was cancer-free), and I also still simetimes wake up thinking I have to go in her room to check on her before I'm completely awake.

Another weird thing...in the fall of 1957 I was 17, and on my first tour with HOI, and about half the show had come down with the first wave of Asian Flu.  I did NOT write home about that.  By my 18th birthday, I was pretty sick, but I decided to splurge and call home, anyway (from Macon, GA. Remember how much long distance calls cost back then?).  The first thing mother said when she picked up the phone was NOT "Happy Birthday!"  She said, "What's WRONG?"

Spooky.
