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.

Saving Number 90 - From Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist)

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

 28 June 2013 at 10:20 AM  I feel vibrantly alive with all my senses alert to the sights, smells, tastes, sounds, touch and emotions of life's energy. My passions of thought and action spring from my basic animal nature. These strengths ground me to the Earth and the universe beyond. I am part of all that exists in this web of life, begun in the primordial soup of evolutions and passing through me to future generations.

Loren, that Buzzfeed link it great.  It is definitely being passed around to my friends. 

Comment by booklover on June 28, 2013 at 8:07am

I should have said I like the graphic that you posted!

Comment by Loren Miller on June 28, 2013 at 7:51am

Not my graphic.  Buzzfeed found it and posted it as a part of the collection they put together.  [Hell, if I was THAT good at graphic design, I wouldn't be an engineer!!!]  I just thought that of all the images Buzzfeed found, THAT one was a CLASSIC ... and it may be that Glinda herself would approve!

I like your graphic Loren. :)

One sample, while I think of it:

Comment by Loren Miller on June 28, 2013 at 6:39am

So ... I'm going to guess that most of us here are VERY GLAD to see DoMA and Prop 8 get the boot from the Supreme Court.  However, I wonder if some of you had seen the reaction from other locations on the web.

Well, it would seem that Buzzfeed DID!!!  Have a look!

Good Morning Friends!  My Daughter just left for Chicago to go see the big parade for the Chicago Blackhawks!  How fun!  My Mom is taking my son and I out for breakfast. :)

A tribute to the flower children.

Love the Hendrix quote, Flying Atheist.

Love the corner cat, Mindy. My cats don't try to hide in corners, they head for the basement every time.
