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.

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

How nice of your neighbors Patricia!  Cool purple roses!

Hi Arp!  Hope you are fine also!

I hope everyone has a good week. :)

Quick hello from me. Hope you all are fine. I've been busy for the last month or so, and continue to be busy even now.

I like your Mother’s Day plan, booklover.

Napoleon, I don’t enjoy S&M, so I’d have found that missed ending less than fun. S&M is compatible with the personality portrayed, though. But it would have been a twist to not have the whole thing be a rant. Oh well, each to his own. You and I often have different tastes, but I still think you add so much to HWF. The world would be uber boring if everybody was like me.

I’m not a mother either, and  happy just to have cats. It never occurred to me to celebrate not-motherhood.

Joan, I’m just an ordinary old woman. If I were really that insightful, wouldn’t I have publications or something? Everything I’ve ever submitted was rejected, excepting at the most trivial level.  You are a very forgiving audience. Thanks.

And... Happy mothers day.

Oops, didn't see where you had already found it.

Joan, a peep or my peeps in slang is 'my people'.
I'm not sure if that's the meaning your were looking for.
