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.

I am weary of those who declare they understand all the answers to the creation of the universe and Earth. They claim they know the answers to the questions of life, meaning, death, and the afterlife. Those with all the answer speak with confidence,…Continue

They talk all day, Carl, but I'm still no expert in understanding Cat. Couldn't find a language guide.

Well the cats get fed up with how unsophisticated we are ya know.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on December 22, 2014 at 1:38am

Patricia, you're very lucky to have talking cats.  Most are too smug to speak to humans.  :)

You Tube fixes shaky video, Plinius.

  1. Ring Out Solstice Bells
    Song by Jethro Tull
  2. Now is the solstice of the year,
    winter is the glad song that you hear.
    Seven maids move in seven time.
    Have the lads up ready in a line.
    Ring out these bells.
    Ring out, ring solstice bells.
    Ring solstice bells.
    Join together beneath the mistletoe.
    by the holy oak whereon it grows.
    Seven druids dance in seven time.
    Sing the song the bells call, loudly chiming.
    Ring out these bells.
    Ring out, ring solstice bells.
    Ring solstice bells.
    Praise be to the distant sister sun,
    joyful as the silver planets run.
    Seven maids move in seven time.
    Sing the song the bells call, loudly chiming.
    Ring out those bells.
    Ring out, ring solstice bells.
    Ring solstice bells.
    Ring on, ring out.
    Ring on, ring out.
