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.

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

 Patricia on April 4, 2013 at 12:55pm is a photo of a little girl with haunted eyes that you posted. I was going trough the files to make sure I read everything and ran across it. Making a comment on it, on then page 12, I didn't realize my response would be so far away.

Patricia, those haunted eyes of that little girl. She has some wounds. I hope she has someone who loves her. Whatever caused her pain, I hope they can no longer hurt her and she has some healing memories.

Chis, Dido is gorgeous. I hadn’t thought of the danger of tripping over a b lack cat at night. I hope that doesn’t happen at the top of the stairs.

Your cardboard box sounds like fun, Flying Atheist.

We made a temporary hutch out of a big sturdy cardboard box, which is a good height for tour two big cats to look out of the guest bedroom window. That room was their transition room when we got them over a year ago. The box is still there for them, but now they use the aerobed instead.

Cats seem to know when you hurt them accidentally, and forgive quickly. That’s been our experience when tripping or stepping on a tail.

Our thermometer briefly got up to 88° this afternoon. Meanwhile blizzards from Colorado to South Dakota.

Funny Patricia.

lol Patricia! :)

Steph, I like the cute black kitty hug.

Melinda, I like the fortunate cat with a box. :)

Chris, if your cat purrs after you stumble over him, it seems like he understands you didn't do it on purpose.  Is that right?  How about the rest of you?  Do your cats understand accidents?

Comment by booklover on April 10, 2013 at 1:09pm

Dido IS beautiful!  My sister and I also loved cardboard boxes as kids!  We always made little houses also!  Whenever we get one now, we make little houses for the cats, and also just let them play in it until they're tired of it. :)
