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

Oh Ruth, you should have been on the trip with feminists to Ireland, looking for ancient goddess sites. The Paps were really interesting when connected to the stories Padraigin McGillicuddy told in her Gaelic accent. We did a bit of the old Irish dancing and singing, learned a few ancient songs.
We found an ancient Shelanagig carving on a very very old ... temple isn't the correct word, but a building used during the days of Leprechauns and fairy circles. When Patrick came to Ireland he had all the Shelanagig's destroyed. He saw them as obscene, I guess. They were just a primitive people expressing their appreciation for the finer things of life. As so often happens, one spiritual faith destroys any remnant of an earlier faith.

Angela, what a nice trip you describe. Flying with your daughter must give some kind of thrill, maybe a bit of anxiety? Love the serendipity of bread and jam.
Comment by Ian Mason on June 24, 2013 at 1:09am

That sounds like fun, Angela. I hope the bread and jam made up for the nausea. A good week to you too.

Ruth, I think those activity  statistics sound a little dodgy. Perhaps the result of NSA prying :-D

I've thought this page has been fairly quiet now for a couple of weeks. I kept wondering where everyone was.

Everything being related to breast cancer has gone over the top with the symbolism, & it's getting old. Been there, done that, & lots of other subjects come to my mind. Personally, I don't want to think of cancer with every waking moment & the constant reminders don't help! I love scenery, but it certainly does not have to be related to a boob!!!! I agree Ruth...it's a little creepy!!!

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on June 23, 2013 at 11:39pm

Actually the breast cancer awareness monument creeps me out a little. It's one thing to identify hills as paps or Grand Tetons, another to attach a pink tumor-like thing as if Gaia has breast cancer. We have a photo of the Grand Tetons on our bedroom wall. (not this snowy)

Hang With Friends dropped down to the top of page 4 ranked by most active, even though there was activity an hour ago. We were listed as just a bit less active than Lebanese Atheists whose last activity was on July 30th, 2012.

Glad you had a good time Angela! Small planes make me nauseous too! The bread and jam sound yummy!
Comment by Angela on June 23, 2013 at 10:11pm
Just got home from visiting my daughter in TN. We had a great five days together. I went to her flying lesson on Monday and the instructor was nice enough to let me go up with them. She is getting very good but the little dips reminded me that I wasn't in a 747 and needless to say I got a little queasy. But I brought home some bread from a little German bakery in Clarksville and was pleasantly surprised when I got home to discover that my neighbor had brought over some raspberry jam from her recent vacation! Hope everyone has a great week!

Reminds me of the Paps of Anu in Ireland. Ancient monuments honoring feminine energy. The rock monument you can see on the right represents the "pap" and there is one on each hill. These were cone in the time of Gaelic Ireland

A British artist changed a hill into a breast cancer awareness monument, it's beautiful!
