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

Wow, Joan.  That's a great whale video.  Captivating.

Ruth, your photo choice of Tippi is so precious. Just think of how many experiences she had and learned. She was really at risk with all those animals, and I am sure she had to learn to be discerning. The site didn't come through for me, but I found the photo to which you referred in my mail. So I am reposting the site in case others had the same problem.  I don't mean to intrude.

Interesting Pagan costumes, Flying Atheist. Thanks.

Tippi of Africa: Girl Who Grew Up With Wild Animals 

http://www.demilked.com/tippi-of-africa-girl-who-grew-up-with-wild-...

Just think of the things this little girl learned, to be self-reliant, independent, trusting with discernment, and to take responsibility for herself while not provoking trouble. Her adversaries could eat her or walk on her or give her a python's squeeze. Her companions undoubtedly taught her things she would never learn anywhere else. I like those parents.

Carl, I kind of took a liking to the creature with all the bells, but I would paint on a clown face with a red ball nose, and jingle as I made a big racket and peered in windows. No sinister demon for me.

Cool links Carl!  I liked the tree also Joan.  I also liked the thing wearing the flowered blanket, lol.  Exactly Patricia!  No guilt trips!

Napoleon, AWESOME video of the elephants!  My daughter and I loved it!

Comment by The Flying Atheist on October 24, 2013 at 3:25pm

Yes, I especially love the tree as well, Joan.  Did you check out the other photos in the links?  Some are downright creepy.  The images of nightmares.
