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.

Seth says himself that the following is a departure from the usual fare his YouTube channel features.  Personally, I think it's a positive and constructive move, because it demonstrates that no, we are NOT just about atheism.  We're also very much…Continue

True what you say, Joan. People cling to  those illusions though, like they cling to the illusion of religion.

Tony, I AM that pup.

Right booklover - hope the right candidate gets elected tonight.

Love the warrant kitty booklover - very cute.

Tony - what a wonderful story. I am glad that you got to meet such a nice lady. Beautiful and warm people are hard to find these days. It's always wonderful when you find someone like that.

Puppy jumping picture is really funny Tony. Thanks.

Cool experience Tony!  Cute puppy too! Here's to the right person being elected! ;)

Hey everyone. Only had to stand in line little over an hour to vote. Got into a lovely conversation with a Ms. Lathrop. 88 y.o. lady. The only thing she said about politics was she had voted in every election since late 40's. How wonderful. We mostly talked about family, food (got a great recipe from her I'm dying to try), and general things. What a beautiful, warm, human she was.

Anyway, a puppy pic.

Ian, it amazes me that a person running for public office would be so insensitive to the needs of his/her constituents. During my grandfather's and father's day, hard work could get one into the middle class. It is my generation that proves that to be a lie. Another myth shot down. 

One by one, the old myths fall to the garbage heap:

religion

capitalism 

democracy
