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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Congrats Ian! They say parenting is never over, but you can enjoy yourself knowing that your children have a good time.

AWWW kitties!

Our weeks are all the same day, or so it seems. Retirement takes away the weekends......which is fine by us.

That's great Ian!  That's all we can want for our kids is happiness.  What else is important if they are happy?  My daughter is sort-of dating an old boyfriend.  She can't decide if she wants to be a couple or not.  She said "What if I just want to stay single?"  I told her as long as she is happy, then do what she thinks best!

My daughter and her boyfriend have found a flat and are moving in together on the 3rd Jan. My little girl has grown up. I hope I  can get used to saying "son-in-law" before I start hearing "granddad". They've got to finish uni and get jobs first so I may have a couple of years to go. I just hope they'll be happy. My daughter is sensible enough to choose a good man so they have every chance.

Ian, I understand and share the urge to read more. This piece on Joseph Campbell and "Follow your bliss", including his works. Near the end of his life he powerfully supported Marija Gimbutas work and they both wrote more sensitively as a result of their friendship. 

I'm going back to the piece now to read (MORE: Why Fighting Enemies Isn't Good for You) and (MORE: Life Lessons From 'The Wizard of Oz').
