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.

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

Melinda, have discovered a pretty good site for buying/donating used books, & got my first shipment a few weeks ago. Worth checking out......

I knew you would like it Steph!

Going to the UU church today for their annual "Trash or Treasure" sale.  We always get a lot of good books!  Then out for lunch with my Mom and Daughter. :)

I hope you all have a good weekend my friends!

Thanks Joan!  I don't want to get too excited until it's all settled and she's actually there all set-up and ready to go!

Really good news about your daughter, Mindy. Sounds like she is on her way! Happy for you, as well.

I'm not a Trekkie, but I agree with this logic! :)

Very heavy rain and hail coming down how. Windy, wet, and cold. No gardening today, except inside.

Oh Loren, you are so patient. I have a really hard time reading fiction. I read how much you enjoy it and recognize it gives ideas in ways that don't come across in the professional literature. However, I read a page, paragraph, chapter, and it is just so much blah, blah, blah. I am half way through and I will finish because that is my style. I do appreciate everyone's encouragement to get out of my closet and open up to new and different ways to enjoying life. 

I must say, This spring is especially welcome, even tough it is so crazy, unnatural. And we had that terrible landslide over on the coast with so many people still buried in the mud. The bodies come out, one by one. This morning they found the baby. The slide was compounded by recent earthquakes, very heavy rain, a deforested slope that has not grown back to hold the slope from caving. 

The way I read all this, we have used the Earth as if it is a slave to be bent to our will, and Mother Nature just does her thing, caring not one iota whether we survive or not.
