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.

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

That's lovely news, Joan. I'm very glad you're on the mend now and hope that the last pains subside quickly.

Patricia, I should have written, "a moth-catcher-cat"

Comment by Joan Denoo on November 19, 2013 at 9:04pm

Patricia, great photos! The huge bear and Charmin ... perfect match!

A mother-catcher-cat, that makes great sense! and is funny. 

This little squirrel isn't up to catching anything, except the cat food bowl.

The lovely young woman in my Avatar is my just turned 21 year old granddaughter, Laurie, who participated with me as part of my Cancer Cure Team. She was a real brick through everything. When I was overwhelmed, she was there. When I was afraid, she held me close. When I cried, she wiped away my tears. She gave me the most wonderful gift any one can give, her smile and jokes. She made me laugh. 

The event  was my graduation from those dreadful chemo cocktails. I had another graduation ceremony when I finished radiation. 

Dr. Fairbank, radiologist, saw me today for the last time, unless I want to come for a visit. All healing occurs as expected, a little more external healing and much to heal inside. Very little pain now and it, too, will end. 

I had a meeting with him and his staff to thank them all for their very wonderful care and compassion. Mike, the primary technician, apologized profusely for the ordeal he claimed to have put me through, and I assured him he is part of my Cancer Cure team.

Hi, Steph.  You pop in and out of here so quickly.  I hope you're doing well.  You always sound so busy! 

Yes, it's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is almost here.  This has been an odd year for me.  I feel as though I've missed out on both the Summer and Fall seasons without being able to fully enjoy all the associated activities.  I've either been working or at home being a hermit.

Wow - what great posts today - cool video Flying Atheist.

Patricia and Booklover - those had me laughing. Very funny.

Good video Tony -interesting and Joan - good quote. Can you believe next week is Thanksgiving?

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.
