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.

Melinda, your photo is so touching; their affection for each other is clear.

Ian, your daughter is beautiful! You must be very proud of her. May your relationship be rich with communication, deep and loving with emphasis on flourishing for both of you.

"Astrid" is an old-nordic name. Original meaning is a little unclear but possibly "divinely beautiful" or "greatly loved".

Just had a lovely afternoon with my daughter. Lunch then Puccini's "Tosca" at the concert hall in Aarhus. Was even allowed to see a phone-photo of The Boyfriend. He wants to celebrate Valentine's Day by seeing the new Die Hard film. He might be all right, this boy :D
