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.

Happily, I am now a five year breast cancer survivor, and I am thankful to my friends, family, my health care team, and to science and medical discoveries. Dealing with cancer and treatment is never easy and it's damned scary, but it is easier when…Continue

Grinning, I like the quote, or is it a poem, about cats. Very true.
Joan, thanks for showing us the awesome waterfall pictures. Breathtaking!

Bask In These Breathtaking Waterfalls From All Over The World.

Needing a moment of relaxation, and wanting to see something beautiful, then sit back, relax, and enjoy these.

Mindy, I can relate to you being so glad Molly Mae is not in pain anymore.  We felt the same way about my dad when he went.

I also wish people could go like that at the end of their lives if they so choose.

Grinning Cat, I like the quote about each new kitten becoming it's own cat.

Comment by booklover on August 1, 2014 at 7:29am

Thanks Grinning and Felaine. :)  We won't get another dog.  But I will for sure get another cat!:)

To my friends who have lost their Mollys this week, my sincere sympathies.  I know how much it hurts....been there, done that more times than I can count.

To Grinning Cat: that is such a sweet quote.  I must be more than 50 cats old by now; my parents had cats for 10 years before they had me, and we have have always had cats ever since then.  A lot of them were "dumped" at our house when it was still safe to let them roam outside (and every effing neighbor blamed US for any cat damage that they found in their yards, as if we were the only cat fans for miles....they even blamed us for the free-roaming dogs that buried bones in their flower beds....)

We stopped letting our cats go outside when the greedy developers started building ticky-tacky houses up in the hills and destroying coyote and mountain lion territory back in the 1980s.

Joan, it's good to see the Swedish language expanding with a gender-neutral pronoun, that's a more natural extension than "they" for "she/he" in English.

A commenter on the 2012 article about divided opinions on the pronoun noted: "Well, like it or not, it's apparently taking hold. The other day two separate Swedish friends of mine both used 'hen' in normal conversation."
