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.

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

Carl, do you have blue eyes?  My son and I both wear blue shirts often because we both have blue eyes.  My daughter does too, but hers have a hint of green in them.  It's funny because my husband has brown eyes, which are dominant, but both of our kids got my blue eyes.  I told my husband that I'm dominant! lol

I'd love to see the meteor shower, but the light pollution is horrible here! On a good night you can see the Big Dipper or Orion, but that's about it.

Did anyone try to watch the highly anticipated meteor shower last night (this morning, the 24th)?

Wow--nice to see that others enjoy jazz like I do! I didn't know S. Grapelli played piano (violin, of course). Sorry I can't listen to your offering, Felaine. No sound card. L.A. used to have a great jazz station (I lived in Pomona for 7 years--'66-'73). Indianapolis has a PM jazz/AM classical station I can get. Hurray!

Carl, I like Patricia and That Happy Feeling.

I don't care for blue but I used to wear almost nothing but blue shirts because blue makes my skin tone look better.

Joan, when you mentioned gold, it reminded me that I also very much like copper color.  While I'm at it, I'll say that I like turquoise also.

I love the virtual tour of the Topkapi, Ian! Those wonderful blue and green tiles! Istanbul has been on my wishlist for a long time, but I'll never go there in summer,

Carl, the mosaic is from the Byzantine period and a lot is still in situ, where the Palace once stood. Here's a link:http://www.muze.gov.tr/mosaic

Bill Evans is really cool, in the original jazz sense of the word. Very relaxing to listen to.

Hope you heal quickly, Chris.

I like the lilac paint very much Patricia, it must be very restful to have a bedroom like that. My favourite colour is a soft shade of green with not too much yellow in it.

Yesterday I took some hours off and walked in the park with a friend. Today I'm covered in after sun cream, burned even under my t-shirt and bra. And there was even light clouding!
