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.

Love the beautiful pictures and videos you all have been posting. Hectic here - but end of semester will be here soon. Then summer time. It is starting to really warm up here. Finally able to get outside and bike more. This summer I hope to go hiking at more state parks.

I wouldn't say something like that to you Felaine!

We only have the fancy train service through here originating from Vancouver. We did the Rocky Mountaineer 3 years ago, & there is VIA RAIL through, but there is nothing to do just a local from Williams Lake to Prince George. It's bus or fly & I ain't gittin' on no errorplane!!! Some people will even hire a taxi for that trip, but I don't know how it would compare with the bus tickets.....which have gone up........a lot!

Patricia: If I'm being too nosy, tell me to STFU.  Is there no rail service between your home town and Prince George?

I am so disgusted with the lack of "small town" rail connections in the USA any more.  I mean...Pasadena, CA is not exactly a small town, but Amtrak closed the (historic) station and removed the tracks almost 20 years ago.  They also closed the station where I used to board the Coast Starlight (to go to Oregon & Washington) about 10 years ago, and moved it to another, inconvenient stop at the other end of the valley.

I'm sorry...I just think rail travel is more ecologically sound, economical, and much more comfortable and enjoyable than any other method.  But it sure ain't as great as it was 55+ years ago!

Ruth, that cat picture with the flowering trees is absolutely gorgeous!!!!

Nice Patricia!  Have a fun and safe trip!  Cool kitties and a dog to play with! :)

Getting on the Greyhound bus tomorrow for a 3 hour trip to visit our son & his girlfriend for the weekend. That's about the max time for our travelling now, but it'll be a bit of a break. They are in the boonies with no internet service so am not taking the laptop. Looking forward to his cooking, & he will chauffeur us around to shop in stores we don't have here. Plus.....they have kitties & a dog!

LOL, I hear you Mindy.

Happy Spring, all!

Mindy, I often have those feelings.

Good stuff everyone!  Have a good hump-day!

Comment by Loren Miller on April 23, 2014 at 6:44am

I've been listening to Christopher O'Riley's piano transcriptions of songs by Radiohead a lot lately.  Many of them are truly beautiful, including this cover of "Street Spirit (Fade Out)":



Please enjoy.
