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.

Let's not define ourselves or others by our worst behaviors

Started by Ruth Anthony-Gardner. Last reply by Dominique Lutz Apr 16. 6 Replies

My take on the recent melt down at Hang With Friends, of which I missed part, is that some of us were tripped up by a habit of thought. It's something we learn growing up, and use without realizing how much pain it can generate -  failing to…Continue

Ode to Yahweh (Non Stamp Collector & 43alley)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Joan Denoo Mar 24. 1 Reply

Ages ago (five or six years, I guess it is) when I first started recognizing my own atheism, one of the first atheist YouTubers I ran onto was Non Stamp Collector.  His handiwork wasn't up to Disney's standards, nor even Hanna-Barbera, but his wit…Continue

I'm back from the Whopping Crane Festival and I posted my pictures.

It was so much fun - I need to get caught up on the site now.

How is everyone.

Oh that cat is so funny Ruth!!

Just need to organize them all.

Luckily Mira and Trissa wait politely for me to get up, then mob me for breakfast. Many owners are not so lucky.

Joan, it was great to hear about your Dad (nicknamed after a cross between a drake and a TARDIS!) and family.

sk8eycat and Patricia's cartoons capture some truths!!

(And yes, I've been woken up by a cat at 7am demanding her breakfast!)

Comment by Joan Denoo on February 24, 2013 at 3:14pm

Treasures, all:

sk8eycat, "I am god" explains herding cats ... and religious; 

booklover, the cat's bedtime prayer says it just right;

The Flying Atheist, your cat yawn is catching, even though it is 1:10 PM, think I'll catch a nap; and

I am glad you enjoyed my "Jules the Drake" remembrances. Those are sweet memories.

Melinda, you and your husband each get a Gold Star in parenting for yesterday's activities.  Now.....can I get you to come over to visit me?! 

I'm enjoying my morning coffee right now as well.  Can't get started without it.
