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.

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

sk8eycat, You have had a most interesting life and able to skate with such a troupe of people and do all that traveling so young! The ice show amazes me, how can people perform such balance and grace on blades?

Sadly, your days came to an end on the ice show with your injury. Do you have arthritis now, or stiffness of your injured ankle? I was always too much of a coward and hated hurting, so stuck to things like books and writing. I admire your and your accomplishments.

Tony, thank you for such a nice affirmation and acknowledgment of what I hope to do. Your words on your posts offer such good and insightful thoughts, I feel inspired. 
The penguins video is a keeper for those days that seem a bit discouraging.

Sk8eycat, wonderful video.  Who would of thought you'd being watching yourself in a TV promo forty-six years later on something called the internet?  I can imagine the great memories that must trigger.

Joan, according to my calculations, your birthday was yesterday. 

Happy Birthday!!

I was out for 6 months...came down with appendicitis while we were playing Los Angeles (glad that it happened while I was at home, if it had to happen at all.)  The next summer I sprained my ankle during rehearsals in Madison, WI. It was so bad that they sent me home, and I said "F**k it."  And started looking for bookkeeping work.

An' dats de trooooof.

Dear Joan,

     I know it was yesterday, but wanted to wish you a happy birthday. May your life continue to be filled with love, joy, and happiness. May kindness, understanding, and empathy continue to be your companions along the road. You are truly a unique person whom it is my privilege to know.

     Your friend,

     Tony

Neither one came to anything of mine but it was them who got me into the things to start with. Dear ol' dad even disappeared for my birthdays. Drink wasn't ever in the mix. Whatever.......

Seems to me your MOMMY would have known what you were like......hahahaha........
