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.

Yes Carl, like you, we have plenty of snow left. The ''mountains'' left by the city snow blowers along the street edges are still large, but we've been having lots of wind so the yards are clearing very quickly. I'm just so glad to be out on my own terms instead of relying on transit or neighbors to get around.

That's pretty much it about that Bieber kid, & his disturbing everyone around him with loud behavior screeching his car around his neighborhood & peeing in a public restaurant or whatever it was. This latest thing about the marijuana on the airplane has put him before the law again. I never did ''take'' to the kid, music fan that I am, but something always struck me as phony......seems to be coming true. The news is in your face at every turn so try as a person may, it isn't very avoidable. Joan is lucky, because I'm at the vomit point now. He shames Canada. We are Celine Dion fans, & she makes us proud.......huge difference.

I'm glad everyone has enjoyed the Vivaldi music.  He's a favorite composer of mine and his Four Seasons is one of my favorite Baroque compositions. 

Joan, I have the Bach cello suites on CD.  It's great lazy morning music to enjoy while sipping coffee and eating bagels.  I find this particular music to be relaxing and introspective. 

Patrica, glad to hear you're getting your mobility back.  Do you have much snow still on the ground where you live?  Despite the record snow amounts we had here, it's almost completely gone, with just a few stubborn patches that have yet to melt.  These are in places where the snow was previously piled high to chest-level.  Temperatures are in the 40's today and the sky is cloudless, blue and sunny.  It truly feels like spring, which is great because I have some errands to run. 

Also Joan, I was actually shocked that you've never heard of Justin Bieber.  He's someone who is hard to miss even is you don't follow his career or entertainment news in general.  But another part of me wants to give you a big hug and tell you how lucky you are!  Who is Justin Bieber?  In a nutshell, he a young, teen-idol singer from Canada who was discovered during his teenage years and became a HUGE international sensation.  He is now 20 years old and is living the life of a HUGE, arrogant, spoiled brat in Los Angeles who, in recent years, has continually been getting into scrapes, brushes, and arrests with law enforcement for his juvenile behavior.  News about him has been hard to avoid despite my best efforts. 

Patricia, is that an accurate summary?

Terrific guitarist!

Oh! I like this one! Cary's likes Tina S. I wonder if it is a generation thing.

I love Vivaldi! And today is J.S. Bach's birthday. He was heavily influenced by Vivaldi. Baroque music swings. Better than anything out there (esp. Bieber types).

He's revolting Joan, you aren't missing anything. Check online if you're curious.

Comment by Joan Denoo on March 20, 2014 at 8:37pm

Carl, lovely music and images to start spring! We have definitely had a change in weather ... I hope it holds for a while.

I have never heard of Justin Bieber. I guess I live a sheltered life.

Comment by Patricia on March 20, 2014 at 6:13pm

Beautiful Carl! Can almost hear the bees/birds & catch the fragrances. Cute deer/fawn/chicks. Am a gazebo, & small foot bridge nut, & of course love the music.
