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'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

The old biddies in the church I went to as a teen-ager loooooved "In the Garden."  The really funny thing is that the song was written by a man.  Maybe he should have titled it, "In the closet."

Comment by sk8eycat on March 1, 2012 at 2:48pm

LOL!  I always think of a lonely middle-aged spinster singing, "And he walks with me, and he talks with me, and he tells me I am his own."  Sounds like there's more romantic longing than worshipful praise in that one.

sk8eycat, I hadn't thought it being an "all about me" religion, but you are right!!!!!!

Comment by sk8eycat on February 29, 2012 at 11:42pm

I have thought for years (decades) that saying something like, "Gawd wuz lookin' out fer me today," is the height of arrogance.  Especially when other people, just as religious or just plain good, have been killed or maimed.

If you listen closely to xians, you'll learn that the whole religion is about "Me-Me-Me."  "Jesus Loves Me," "My lord and savior," and on and on.

That was one of the many things that finally turned me off about the whole megillah.  And most other monotheistic religions aren't much better.

Yes, far away from the tornadoes, but it is still really windy though.  So sad for all the people who lost loved ones and had their lives devastated.  Of course, there will be all the loonies out there who say 'god' was looking out for them since they weren't hurt.  "God" must've not been looking out for the , at least 7 I think I heard?, that died. :(
