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.

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

sk8eycat, your comment and video merit mindfulness: 

"If You thought you knew what "big" meant, wait till you watch this video with sound.!!"

Booklover and Joan - love your photos and sharing with us.

Hope everyone has a good weekend

Thanks, Patricia. The Google map part is neat, jumping to show you the destination. My husband and I loved your Parachute Club, Nativity Scene, and apple juice/urine cup jokes. It’s good to hear that you are sleeping. The information about delta & theta brain waves put to sound is interesting.

Booklover, great quote! I went back to Facebook recently too. I’d resigned many months ago and thought my account was inactive. But apparently it had been active all along despite my intent, with cross-posts from “likes” I’d done elsewhere.

Aren't you glad you don't live in the US Midwest?

Hi Carl! No, we just went to see "Delivery Man" with Vince Vaughn. (Ironic name, lol). Just wanted a feel- good, light movie. It was cute, but I'd wait for it to come out on DVD. Then we went to TARGET! Of course I bought too much, and I am anti- consumerism! It was for my daughter though!!!! :)now we are relaxing. Keep warm!!!!

Love it, Mindy! Nothing like some good blasphemous cussing. Enjoy the movie. Did you go see the new Noah's Ark movie?

Joan, thanks for sharing your photos.

So today is the xmas family reunion party for my MIL's side of the family. She is one of 11 kids, so big party.  My daughter said she just cannot face putting on a happy face and answering all the questions from relatives about why she left school, what are her plans now, etc.  My husband totally understood.  So I'm not going either! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  My son wants to go, so my husband and son are going, and my daughter and I are going to see a movie! 

Have a good weekend friends! ~ Mindy

What a nice family, Joan!

I love that video, Sk8eycat! I saved it and use it to rid myself of petty irritations. That works!
