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.

Congratulations Ian!

Ian, I like your way.

As regards loss: it's not what you say but how much and how well you listen. It's almost always a good thing to ask "what happened"? Bereaved parents have a real need for patient listeners who "just" listen and don't try to solve problems or find a deeper meaning.

What Joan said Ian.  Nice.

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 29, 2014 at 8:29pm

Ian, a beautiful and brainy daughter. You must be very proud!

I still have a hard time knowing how to respond to someone's loss, even at my age.  My next door neighbor died last year.  Her husband the year before.  Her son came over to tell me and I just didn't know what to say to him, mainly because I don't know him that well.

A coincidental occurrence happened today as I was getting my blood drawn for a LAB report, the woman drawing it said "You look familiar."  I couldn't place her face and asked if she knew my dad.  She said no.

After a couple of minutes she said "don't you live next to where my parents used to live?  I live around the corner.  Then I knew who she was.  I didn't recognize her because I've never talked with her before.  I've talked to her husband and son and most of the rest of their relatives that live in this area. 

Anyway, we talked about her mother & father as well as mine.

And, she did a good job of drawing blood.  The last time I had a lab, the young guy lost the vein and had a lot of trouble finding it again.  Had a big bruise for a week.  Never going to that place again.

I had a good discussion with my new doctor today that may be an agnostic.  I plan on feeling him out to see what his religious beliefs are (or lack thereof).  But so far I like him!

The guy wasn't at work today, of course, my son said.  I don't know if he'll say what happened.  I know my son would never ask.  Just so sad.

So sad about the baby! Lots of low birth weight babies don't die so it has to be something else.

Great news Ian, congrats to your daughter!!!
