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.

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

Patricia, sounds like good strategies to me. I can picture you scooting around with a jaunty attitude, laughter in your heart and a smile on your face. Can't keep a good gal down!

Ian, I can imagine you with a blanket over your head, and you peeking out so you don't miss any part of life. It won't take too long for you to shed your blanket and dance to the beat of your drum.

Aw ya porr thing...hahahaha!!!!

My life is over! Went to the cinema today and the girl at the ticket office printed a cheap ticket for me. "It is a senior (o.a.p) ticket you want, isn't it?" I am now going to sit in a corner with a blanket over my head. Good film though: Star Trek. Into Darkness.

Joan,

I read a lot, & I have a huge collection of music which I add to my MP3 player & listen to with headphones so I can shut everything else out. I have signed up for lots of jokes to come in my email, so I can have regular laughs. I try to get out of the house several times a week & use my mobility scooter to go wherever I like as this city is small enough for our needs. I can't walk far anymore although I walked miles for years as I don't, & never have driven a car. Bus service is good & I use it in winter when my scooter is stored, & I'm also registered to take the Go-Bus.

Patricia, what awful ordeals you endured. Do you have some rest/relaxation things that helped you get through them? Take good care of yourself.

Beautiful music Loren, thanks!

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 17, 2013 at 11:58pm
Loren, that is a lovely piece. Very soothing. Ravel's "Pavane pour un infante defunte."
Comment by Joan Denoo on June 17, 2013 at 11:35pm

Ian, Sibelius: Karelia Suite, certainly is rousing music. It should get me moving. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on June 17, 2013 at 11:27pm
Wow "'Ride of the Valkyries' rouses Caltech students for finals" should get the grey matter stimulated!
