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.

Difficult for you to manage your mums, Ian, it must be extra hard because it's close family.

Comment by Grinning Cat on March 25, 2014 at 10:20pm

Ian, thanks for the laugh! I so completely resemble that "bookworms" poster.

And I'm sorry to hear about your Mums' troubles.

Good Steph! :)

Sorry about your troubles Ian!  That must be so hard. Glad you got to see the exhibitions!

Nice to see you back safely Ian.

Hello all. I'm back from England. The family were not so well, unfortunately. Everyone getting to the age where the cracks start to appear, backs/spines being the biggest problem. Visitted my two Mums. Step-mum o.k.iesh but her short-term memory is limited, probably because of the time she spent in a ventilator. Bio-mum a very sad case as she knows - during her clearer periods - that she's suffering from dementia and gets depressed about it. And there's nothing that anyone can do about it. The specialists have said that her heart problems make her unsuitable for meds.

On the brighter side: saw two exibitions at the National Gallery, one on Veronese and one on the German Renaissance. Veronese's paintings tend to be on the large side as they were for churches and other rich patrons. The Germans (Holbein, Van Eyk, Durer, Altdorfer) smaller and quirky. Then to the National Theatre for a one-woman show. Irish Olwen Fouere performing "riverrun", a selection from James Joyce's "Finnegan's Wake". Stunning, really stunning. I've read the book twice but to hear the text spoken gave it an extra dimension.

I hope that all here are keeping well.

Loren:

That web site says it's from Double Star.  I haven't read that one in ages, so I don't know which character said it...probably someone trying to convince "Lorenzo" that paying attention to politics, and being involved is vital to survival.

Booklover that picture made me laugh - love it. How is everyone ?

Comment by Loren Miller on March 25, 2014 at 7:50am

Joan, I'd be curious to know where you found that "Take sides" Heinlein quote.  I think of myself as knowing RAH pretty well, but I don't think I've run onto that one before.  If you have a source for the quote, I'd love to see it.
