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.

Good Morning, heathen nation! Getting ready to leave for work. Another day at the grind. But it's gonna be a great day. With the solstice coming up, I submit the following, for your approval. You have entered the science zone. (In his best Rod Serling voiceover).

Cool snowflake. Have a great one, my friends. Later

That day would go far beyond the basis for many current holidays, one particular national/ethnic/religious group's survival or victory, to celebrate the hope for continued life for all of humanity!

I forget who said that civilization and maturity is exemplified by expanding the boundaries of "us" (as opposed to "them") to include ever wider circles, eventually all people.

Jared Diamond cautioned us years ago of the coming challenges facing our nation and the Earth and that we need to start making changes in our beliefs, policies and practices. I recommend each one, but if you have limited time,

That didn't come our right. How about this one?

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on November 25, 2012 at 12:35am

At this crux in time, we have the challenge to create the most meaningful of all holidays, the day when we turn around Climate Destabilization.

I'm still reeling from David Roberts TED talk. When we drastically cut back CO2, hope for humanity has a glimmer again. That day will outshine all previous sacred days. Let us achieve this day within five years. I'll really really be happy to celebrate that day.
