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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

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

Loren, if I draw an accurate copy of MoBombHead, does that mean I win a "free" scholarship to the Famous Artists School? ;>P

Good day, All.  Just checking in.  Have a few days off work and can relax and sleep in.  Yay!  It's 11:30 AM and I'm still drinking my morning coffee.  I've been a bit sleep deprived the last several days.  Early morning wake-ups across four time zones doesn't help.  I'm not 20 years old any more!  

Mindy, I'm glad you and your daughter have such a close relationship.  She seems to be comfortable opening up to you, and that is important...for both of you.  A nice walk in a state park sounds very nice.  I enjoy that myself.  

Joan, I really can't add any additional expressions of caring and admiration for you that hasn't already been said by others.  Please add my voice to the group.

Love the drawing Loren! lol

Thanks for the advice about my daughter Ruth and Joan. :)  She says she doesn't know what is wrong.  I don't think the med she's on is right for her. She is going to go talk to her therapist this week.  This is an inherited condition.  I remember feeling the exact same way she did when I was her age, but I didn't have meds yet.  I just thought something was wrong with me.  She and her best friend just went for a short hike in our State Park yesterday, so that advice was spot-on Ruth!  She was in a happier place when she came home.  I just tell her take it one day at a time, and find something that makes you happy every day. 

Hope you all have a good week!  Love the way to walk cats Ruth. :)~ Mindy
