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

Patricia, Great article!  Thanks for posting it!  My daughter started her new job tonight.  She really likes it. :)  My Mom and I are going to Green Bay tomorrow a.m. for the weekend to visit my Sister, Brother-in-Law, Niece, and Nephew.  It's my Niece's 14th birthday.  Starting high school.  Oh boy.  Glad my kids are done with that!  I actually can't wait to see my puppy-niece, Summer. lol.

Fresh out of the oven.....my high fiber bread....

Comment by sk8eycat on August 22, 2013 at 6:05pm

Patricia, I loved the article, but I don't know anybody to send it to.  I've been an open atheist for so long that all my "friends" who couldn't handle that vanished years ago.  99.9% of my friends are also atheists, or indifferent to religion but are afraid of the "A"-word.

I guess that's a project I could get into...getting rid of the undeserved, old Cold War baggage that a simple little word carries around.  Now, how do I start?

I enjoyed this.

An atheist's guide to the good life

Do you know why atheists are so happy? Because they're the freest people on Earth, and their only responsibilities are to their fellow human beings, not phantasms.

Thanks for the info Spud! My daughter and I saw "The Butler" today. Very good movie and a great cast.

Thanks for sharing your therapeutic cat sitting experience, sk8eycat. Did you see hummingbirds at any of the feeders?

Comment by Idaho Spud on August 21, 2013 at 5:00pm

Mindy, I'm pleased that you and daughter are excited and happy.

For quite a while after I joined Atheist Nexus, I kept seeing a place to create a badge.  Seems like it was near the top of the page.  I was always thinking about creating one, but Patricia's post got me going.  It was difficult finding where to go this time, but once I got there, creating the badge was easy.

The place to click on is now found at the bottom of the page towards the right.  It says "Badges".

Felaine, I'm glad to hear that your catsitting "vacation" did some good!

Road Rage Cat reminds me of a joke article I saw years ago, about new cars that run not on gasoline/petrol but on vitriol. They convert anger into energy, and unlike other cars, they're actually most efficient on clogged streets and highways during rush hour.
