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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Patricia, gorgeous setting!

Tara, lol I love random stuff like that!

Yes Ian, this place is completely walkable/bikeable & not far to get into trails either. There is a huge trail following the Fraser River.

Tara - here's a link to my bird group - if you would like to post it there.

If not - that's OK.

I love the picture of the parrot Tara!

That would look great in my bird group.

Very pretty, Patricia!  Love villages near bodies of water like that.

And for a bit of random nonsense:

That looks like a smashing place to live Patricia. I love places where there are opportunities for good, long walks in natural surroundings.

Comment by booklover on September 3, 2012 at 9:18am

That's neat Steph!  I love birds.

Comment by Plinius on September 3, 2012 at 1:27am

What a beautiful place. Patricia! Now that you're talking birds, I notice that the swallows are out of sight - gone south already?

Hey Melinda (Booklover) I've been on a birding trip to the coast! I am really enjoying it here. I posted some pics in my birding group. I have more pics to sort through and I will post more.

I love your city Patricia! Very beautiful view of the surrounding mountains.
