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 discovered a brilliant new way to avoid  having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two…Continue

For folks who like to look at space pix: check out NASA's daily pic at

http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/

I open Firefox and get a new pic every day.

The Archive at the bottom of the page might still have links to pix back to 1995.

Carl, and you know  me...it was more like footlights coming on slowly, till they lit up the whole arena. THEN I felt something like a 200 lb bag of religious manure falling off my shoulders, and I realized I could fly. Well, it was more like zooming to center ice doing a fancy stop, and taking a bow....all within one heartbeat.

The indeed priceless bird pic several pages back?

Are we sure it's not a female bird stopping male left brain talk?

Your family sound wonderful, Carl, what a great place to grow up in! I remember that I stayed as close as possible to what I felt was right for me, without letting it show - just grow up and get out.

Carl, that is a wonderful story about "The Bear" Is it available to see on the internet, or Netiflix. I just marvelled at how they got those wonderful shots, certainly not an easy task to do that clip ... the whole film must be quite inspiring. Hopefully, people will go with cameras instead of guns to get their shots.

Lots of people have trouble saying the fourth word.

Comment by Tom Sarbeck on April 30, 2013 at 12:18am

Speak the following FOUR words confidently:

I love myself unconditionally.

Milky Way and Stone Tree

"What's that next to the Milky Way? An unusual natural rock formation known as Roque Cinchado or Stone Tree found on the SpanishCanary Island of Tenerife. A famous iconRoque Cinchado is likely a dense plug of cooled volcanic magma that remains after softer surrounding rock eroded away. Majestically, the central band of our Milky Way Galaxy is visible arcing across the right of the above seven image panoramic mosaic taken during the summer of 2010. On the far right is the Teide volcano complete with a lenticular cloud hovering near its peak."
