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.

Hello, Friends.  I hope all of you have a groovy weekend.  For those of you here in the U.S., most of you will probably have Monday off work.  Enjoy!  Here's a little mood music.

I'm a blue person.  I love all the different shades of blue.  It's a very calming color.  I also like the very light and muted shades of green.

Orange is my least favorite color, and my daughter's favorite. She just painted her bedroom a bright aqua though. Reminds me of Key West. :)

Loren, Bill Evans is a fine pianist, indeed.  Yes, you should explore his music.  I have his "Conversations With Myself" album.  It's very wandering and dreamlike.  Here's the Wikipedia article about it.  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conversations_with_Myself

It's a very interesting album.  It's just solo piano but with three overdubbed tracks that were recorded by Evans on three different days.  Yeah, it may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I like it.  Here's a sample.

Spud, my walls are all Mission White and I use bright colors in carpet, stuffed furniture and throws. When my kids were still at home, Cary chose a brilliant gold that knocked your sox off, Criag chose very dark chocolate with gold trim and Laura chose a paint color that matched the raspberry stain she got from eating raspberries and wiping her hands on her T-shirt. The fellow at the paint store did a nice job of matching. 

When they all moved away, I painted everything white. The fellow who helped me paint liked my kids color schemes better than mine.

Welcome back home, Ian.  Glad you had a good trip.  I'm curious about the monkey mosaic.  What era is that from and in what type of building/setting?

Patricia, I like that shade of lilac, just enough color to offer a restful place with a nice contrast with white. 

Carl, enjoyed "Patricia". pleasantly rhythmic.
