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

Napoleon, great video! Fun watching trunk, ears, tai,l feet and body respond to rhythms. The other elephant had a fancy dance step! Wonderful! 

Steph, Your cat has good taste!

Napoleon - cool videos - I have a wildlife group if you would like to post them there.

Carl - love the Peanuts cartoon.

Les éléphants ont de petites oreilles et de grands fronts. Ils sont les éléphants d'Asie.
Il n'est pas possible de s'entraîner éléphants d'Afrique. Ils ne nous aiment pas.

Carl, I very much like "Has it ever occurred to you that you might be wrong?!" My favorite line. Am reposting

Napoleon, I found that video on YouTube yesterday and sent it to a bunch of people!  It's precious!

Steph, love tree-frog impression.

That's a great Peanuts Carl!

Napoleon, a beautiful film of a cat with completely retracted claws, comforting a fussy baby. I imagine the lovely cat comforts Mom and Dad as well, when they feel fussy.

That's so sweet, Napoleon Bonaparte. Watching the cat sooth the fretting baby actually made me relax.

Cute tree frog impression, Steph.

I too didn't know that Schulz had deconverted. Thanks, Tony. The T rex gave me a laugh too.

Ian, what a wonderfully outrageous photo of a penguin! 

Carl, the library benefits hold especially true for people who need and want distraction from some situation.
