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

Carl, that walk is a killer. Why would be brave enough to build it ... and without reinforcing bars. The one fellow wore a strap that hooked onto the wire, however those five or six steps on a steel bar with crumbling concrete doesn't give me any confidence. Also, concrete against native stone, with normal cold/hot variation would break concrete all to smithereens.
The vehicle in India is another thing altogether. A road bed could slip out under the weight at any moment, especially where water is involved. If I were a passenger, I would prefer to walk.
Why go there? I don't like the taste or feel of adrenaline.

Ruth, that van ride in India is outrageous.  I think I would go into cardiac arrest from anxiety.  It reminds me of this video footage of the famous El Camino del Rey walking trail in Spain. 

Mindy, it's a good thing I don't live within walking distance of a Target.  I'd own half the store.  The closest one to me is two short bus rides away.  And without a car, I have to limit my purchases to what I can carry.  That's probably a good thing!  

Dear sweet Joan, glad to hear you're doing well.  I like your new profile picture.  Who is that with you and what are you holding up?  You always have a beaming, wonderful smile.

Tony, outrageous, imbecilic, ridiculous, asinine, absurd, and so funny, I can't stop laughing at those crazy people. 

Ruth, that road, river, and terror were as my repeating nightmares I had in 1974, only the brakes gave out on my car and I was trying to make all the curves and dodge all the rockfalls and possible plunges. My river below was a raging torrent. I would wake up crying and in absolute terror. Then I saw the first frame, my stomach churned in recognition of a familiar sight. 

At the time, I didn't realize I had to leave my marriage, my family, my church community and my religion if I were to have freedom.

Ruth!  I can't even watch that video without feeling like I'm going to fall out of my chair! lol.  I can't imagine riding it for real! NO way!

Joan, I like the saying about inner-peace.  I need to remember that when I lose my temper. I hope your Dr. appt. went well, and glad your last scab is gone!

My son's car broke down on the way home from work tonight, but my husband went to pick him up, then they are going to let a friend's old dog out (he's working late), and then they will be home. My Mom took my daughter and I out for breakfast, and then we looked all around Target.  Of course there's always something needed at Target.  My Mom always insists on paying.  My sister told her she is annoyingly generous, which my mom thought was hilarious. 

Have a good night my friends!~ Mindy

Hi, All. Here's a little bus ride in India you might enjoy.

Cute LOLcat, Steph. My cat Trissa produces piles that big, but she's never resentful.

LOL, Tony that didn't sound like any llama I've seen.
