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've been into genealogy for a long time. It's fun, especially with internet help, but increasingly frustrating. You see, I've hit "brick walls". And being a Smith doesn't make research any easier.Wouldn't you think I could find the death date and…Continue

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Indeed. Those moments graced with a sense of wonder and joy are an important part of what makes life worth living.

Have a great day everyone!

Wow!!!!  I just got done watching the elephant video.  Thanks for sharing, Patricia.  That is one of the most fascinating videos I've ever seen.  It ranks right up there with the wonders and awe of the 'Cosmos' series.  I would SO frame that artwork and proudly display it in my living room.  That was beautiful to watch.

What I like best about lilacs is the wonderful scent.  Hoping I can get a place where I'll have room to grow them.

Heading off the work, just wanted to leave you with this thought from Einstein.

Comment by Ian Mason on August 30, 2012 at 1:05am

Lilacs! Lovely. Lots of them round here, which is a joy.

Morning Cheerfulness? I'm full of it. I work nights so I can gloat over the day-shift trying to prise their eyes open at 7 a.m. while I'm ready to go home and go to bed. (After my daily visit here, of course).

What an amazing video, Patricia. It certainly looks like self awareness to me. Thanks for sharing.
