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.

Thank you Ian, I am very content with my life, even as I have grave concerns about the directions of the economic, political, and religious trends today. All these are human made and can so easily be changed. 
That said, life is very good for me. 

Comment by Ian Mason on April 19, 2014 at 2:24pm

Joan, from what you've written here during the past couple of years you have a happy, fulfilling life. You love and are loved. You are active in your own life and the life of others in a positive way. Nothing can beat that.

Mindy, I hope you are healing quickly, and have a Happy Burfdai tamarra!

I sort of hate to admit this, but spirals were easy for me; I had many years of ballet lessons before I finally learned to skate.  I just enjoyed skating so much more than tippy-toeing across a wooden floor.

Mindy, how is your thumb doing? Infection going away? I am surprised to see such fine typing coming from a hurt thumb!

Randy, it is! It feels more like I perceive you. 

sk8eycat, you are clever in so many ways, and to come up with your unique spelling for your name online is just one example. You must feel very proud of your great talents. 

Spud, thank you for your reassuring words. 

Mindy, you have been on this Atheist Nexus with me for many months and have read all the versions. Thank you for being so kind in spite of my repetition nature. 

Chris, as always, you inspire me, especially with how you teach and the support you give your students. Now, with having to take care of family details, you reveal truly fine character.

"That ''young ice-skater'' is sk8eycat Felaine"!!!! What a remarkable skill you had. It must have taken great determination, discipline and persistence to achieve such a fine level of performance. I am impressed!

Keep writing, Joan! I'll read it.

Comment by booklover on April 19, 2014 at 10:42am

I never get tired of hearing your story Joan!  Of course you have the more successful life.  He probably can't see that.  Things aren't what make people have a successful life, happiness and contentment are in my opinion!

Comment by Idaho Spud on April 19, 2014 at 10:36am

Which one had a successful life?  Rhetorical question I know, but I have to answer anyway.  We all know who did. You did Joan.  Hands down, no question.
