Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

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

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

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'm new here and I have a question. Someone was talking in a post and used the abbreviation a/n for athiest nexus, they also used the abbreviation t/a. What does it mean it was in reference to another site.

Good morning Tony Carroll, John Denver is always a goo way to start out a rainy day. John Denver was the first concert I ever went to at age 8. It was too loud and we had to leave. LOL

Different and still Mozart! Thanks for the video Ian!

This site, full of beautiful photos, funny animal shots, great stories, lovely music, refreshes my spirit. I'm off to bed with a light heart and happy thoughts. Good night all.

Hey Steph. Yes, I do, but this song really gets to me for some reason. I've never been to the high country, but I can see it in my minds eye when I hear The Eagle and the Hawk.

 "Goll darn it Mr. Lamarr, you use your tongue prettier than a $20 whore".

One of my favorite movies of all time, Napoleon. Thanks.

Wish I was visiting with you in your yard Joan. Such a lovely place to be. Tony thanks for the song - I will listen to the song you posted. Do you like the song "Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver? I like that song.

This song, The Eagle and the Hawk, by John Denver, is as close to a "religious" feeling I have. I picture myself back in my youth, on the banks of the Mississippi, seeing red tailed hawks, owls, egrets, and getting that tingly, hair raising on my arms, eyes tearing up slightly feeling. I still get it now, and this is one of the things that does it to me. So my friends, please enjoy.

Lovely pics, all. Every season has its charm.

Joan, thanks for proving that kindness is worthwhile.
