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

I'm off as well.

    To where ever your night dreams take you,

    From the sands of ancient Egypt, to the red

    Sands of Mars. From building the Great Wall,

    To spending your dreamtime in quiet, peaceful, memories.

    The time of freedom lies in your slumber, warm, inviting,

    Loving gossamer visions, fleeting, half remembered upon waking

    To a glorious dawn.

Hugs to all. Goodnight.

What lovely words Joan. I enjoyed reading your post here - and yes I am unique - there is no one else like me. Personality does come from within.
Companions are very Important.

Great pictures! Very powerful evidence of the need for nurturing. I feel great. Hope you all do too. 

Comment by Steph S. on August 21, 2012 at 11:48pm
I love all the cute pictures posted here!
Thanks Tony, Ian, Joan, Patricia, Booklover - and anyone I might not have mentioned. I only went back 2 pages - I got behind again.
Many smiles!

Very well put, Joan. Couldn't agree more.

To continue the inter-species theme:

Patricia, I am glad you have a mom-in-law who taught you how to become a good friend to a few. We need those kinds of people in our lives. We also need good role models; do you have someone you trust and who trusts you? Life is a lot easier with a companion to share the journey. Remember to do something good for yourself every day that makes you feel special, unique, and precious? 

Your contributions on this site makes my days brighter and I am sure you have found those who encourage you to flourish. This life is all there is; we don't have a second chance to do it over again; all we leave behind are memories that other carry about you. Spreading healthy and affirming and positive memories is a great legacy to leave behind. 

Another thing I believe is that there is no other like you; your personality comes from inside and it is your job to bring it to the front. I haven't been able to figure out how to get others' strengths grafted onto me. You and I have to pull strengths from inside each of us and no one can do it for us.
