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.

Are you battling cancer or a cancer survivor?

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

Melinda, that cat is DEMONIC! Steph, yours is so superior/scornful in its expression.

I always start to look with suspicion and distrust at people when they don't freak out when an animal is in danger - so thank you, Joseph Corder, I'm happy you care. And glad your cat is all right!

Joan, there's not much I can add that hasn't already been said by others:  you're very much appreciated here and fondly thought of.  Consider me as one more person in the chorus.  

I, too, love the pictures of the Auroras.  That has got to be breathtaking to witness in person.  How lucky we are that we're intelligent enough to comprehend and appreciate the endless beauty and wonders that accompany our existence.

sk8eycat and booklover - those are great. I took them for my collection of images.

sk8eycat, I haven't been around in a while because a 1 year old cat is a hand full!! I didn't know that I could be such a mother hen!  Earlier today a dog chased Buddy up a 9 foot tree.  He couldn't turn around and climb down the tree.  I was at the bottom of the tree and he fell and I missed catching him!!  He hit the sidewalk and didn't land on his feet!!!  He took off and I freaked out!!  I called my wife at work and she came home immediately.  Before she did I found the cat under our neighbors' house!!  He's ok but I flipped out!  I believe he will sleep the day away and be ready to go this evening!!
