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

O, hai!  I found splits of one of my favorite brands at the grocery store!  Yum-yum-yum.

Nice to find de Montaigne here, Joan! I loved to read his essays, they give you the feeling of a friend who tells you about his world during a walk - quite something, that the Montaigne is able to bridge 400 years in such an easy going manner.

Hey, y'all!  I'm not leaving YET!  I'll be right here till some time Saturday afternoon.  I just wanted to give you advance notice that you won't be hearing from me for a couple of weeks, and that it's nothing purr-sonal.

I am a little busy, doing laundry and trying to figure out how much I can squeeze into my smallest "wheelie" suitcase.  I always do this, and then end up only using about half of what I've packed.

As I said before, Sue doesn't have a computer, BUT she has more books than I do (and that's saying something), so I think I'll reread my way through her Tony Hillerman and Dick Francis collections.  (I miss both those men SO much!)

I will be snooping in here as much as I can before I leave. I've "disconected" myself from all my other AN groups for the time being; I just couldn't keep up with all of them.

Now I have to e-mail all my friends who aren't AN members, and and ask them to PLEASE not fill up my in-box while I'm gone.  A couple of them keep lists that forward stuff automatically to everyone they have addys for...gets to be a bit much after a while.  I "tailor" the joke and photo emails I send out to people I know will enjoy them.  Not everyone laughs at the same things.  Not even Kitteh-pics.  Of course.

Thanks Joan.  Going to save that quote.

Comment by Joan Denoo on December 19, 2012 at 3:39pm

Thanks to Madhukar:

"Oh these foolish men! They could not create so much as a worm, but they create gods by the dozens."

Michel de Montaigne

"Montaigne is a great French Renaissance thinker who took himself as the great object of study in his Essays. In studying himself Montaigne is studying mankind. He attempted to weigh or 'assay' his nature, habits, his own opinions and those of others. He is searching for truth by reflecting on his readings, his travels as well as his experiences both public and private."

MICHEL EYGUEM DE MONTAIGNE (1533-1592)
