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.

Local Color in the Neighborhood

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

Patricia love the rat nap.

Felaine sorry to hear about your social security and rising cost of living expenses. Wish there was something I could do to help.

Congrats on your daughter's job Booklover.

The rat nap is cute Patricia.

Comment by booklover on December 9, 2013 at 8:55pm
I'm sorry you have to worry about that Felaine! I understand why you would be really stressed over that! I was always very physically strong as well. I swear after giving birth, my body fell apart. Gallstones, major panic-attacks, terrible Acid-reflux, the list goes on and on. At 46 I don't feel that I could work full-time. Luckily I don't have to. I wouldn't trade having my kids for anything, but it did make me physically and now mentally (anxiety) weaker.
My daughter started her job today, and goes Thurs. to talk to another counselor re: finishing her degree. Here's hoping!!!!

I like changing things because I get bored very easily......& it's fun to find pictures to add to my collection.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 9, 2013 at 8:29pm

Geez, it seems like many people here are sporting new profile pictures.  I may have to jump on that bandwagon and get up to date.

Ruth, I have that “why did I come into this room?” experience about 7 times a week!
About 4 times in the last 20 years I've had an experience where I don't recognize the room I'm in, even though I've been there many times. It's a little scary, but I just turn around and go back out, and I remember. I don't get too upset with it. My other memory problems don't bother me at all. I just laugh at them.
I stress at many things, but memory isn't one of them.
