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'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

That looks like fun, Patricia. Easy to hear that it was a windy day.

After some thought I've decided that I need more time off. This time Istanbul, middle of May before the weather gets too hot. Long weekend in England at the beginning of June already booked. Some of the GB trip will include power-of-attourney tasks for my mother's affairs but also relaxation with family and an evening at The Globe theatre, Titus Andronicus. The future is bright-

I haven't watched any of My Inner Fish, but I definitely want to.  I've heard good things about it.  I like those kind of shows as well, k.h.  I'll probably catch up with it on the computer or on Netflix eventually.

That's cute fa, I used to draw the smiley faces on the bottom of my toes when my g daughters were very small. I just wish I had thought of the hat. That would have really made them giggle.

Has anyone else been watching the new pbs series My Inner Fish? I'm enjoying learning that we share dna with fish, along with many other species. And our major bone structure. I like these types programs. Along with Cosmos of course.
