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

Ah, Elgar. Great music.

Poor, squished cat! Children love to be kind but there are limits to what a pus can take.

For anyone who's interested, a couple of blogs:


Your thoughts, as always, are invited.

Spud, you have done a tremendous job of soil preparation and it will pay off. Once done, and then maintained with fresh buckets of compost and manure, and your ground will blossom. I look forward to seeing your photos and reports on the flavors you produce!

Loren, thanks for the Elgar piece, Nimrod. It felt so good to just relax into the music and feel normal.  Music does help to quiet anxiety and depression.

Loren, thanks for posting the Nimrod video. I had the pleasure of playing that piece this past Spring with the symphonic band I play in. It's one of those beautiful pieces of music that just seems to, shall we say, transcend.

Chris, that's a precious photo!! Thanks for posting it.

Patricia, for some reason my smart phone is not playing your kitten video. I'll have to give it a try a little later on my laptop. Cute kitty. Looking forward to it.

Hello to everyone. Happy Friday.

Thanks for Elgar, Loren! Too long ago that I heard that wonderful piece.

And I love the squished cat! Reminds me of the first cat I met:

No Ruth, the back door closet is right there when I go in & it was footwear you saw.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on August 16, 2013 at 12:16am

Patricia, thanks for the video of the kitties you're cat-sitting. Was that a vacuum cleaner in the background?

booklover, I loved that squished cat LOL, thanks.

Welcome back Idaho Spud and Steph.
