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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

A sweet friendly-hug pic for all of you.

Great photos. You must have had a lot of strength to keep going with your interests despite the lack of support, Patricia. Hats off to you.

Nothing unusual Melinda, I was in tap dance, choir, band, the trio, school concerts, etc., but nothing was ever important enough to have them come to see them. If it wasn't for the newspaper, I'd never have any evidence I was ever in the band, even though it was the parents who put me in it. Of course I was supposed to be the next Glenna Miller & be the ticket to Hollywood.

I love the saxophone. I'm sorry your family didn't come to your events Patricia! That must have been so hard for you.

That photo was done by the newspaper which is why we were standing on boxes, whatever the reason.

Certainly didn't come from any family taking a pic.

Patricia, what an adorable photo!  :)

Age 14.

The band teacher chose 3 of us to form a sax trio. This was at a teacher/parent meet up evening.....my dear ol' parents of course weren't there.

We were standing on different boxes......the boy on the right was a lot taller than any of us, & the other boy was a little taller than I was. 

The teacher went on to form a boys dance band, & a girls dance band....the boys took off & played all the dances, but the girls didn't get off the ground.
