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

Flying Atheist love the Halloween pic. Booklover that is so cute - I don't like Crocs either.
It's my favorite time of year too.

@ The Flying Atheist, I agree!  Thanks Steph!  I always enjoy the pics you post!  I'm having a great weekend already because the whole family is home together. :)I need to send this pic to my sister.  She absolutely hates Crocs.  I've never tried them.

I love this time of year.  It's a great time to have fun with your imagination and to release your inner child.  I guess the important distinction is knowing that it's just frivolous fun.

Oh booklover I just love the cat and the Halloween picture. So cute.

So how's it going today?

Everyone having a nice Friday?

I just love the moon cat Halloween Samhain pic Tony. Pagans and Wiccans celebrate Samhain Tony. Very big on full moons. That lolcat is the best booklover! So funny.

Singing in the Rain - great song.

Can't hear that song without thinking of the German disco version:

"Sinking in der reyn, yust sinking in der rein". Can't remember what the name of the group was supposed to be but was obviously a bunch of second-rate session singers cobbled together with a drum-machine and a synthesizer. So bad it was funny.

Always a favorite song.

Tony, I don't think I have a "soul," so I ain't afraid.  And "Singin' in the Rain" is one of my all-time favorite musicals, too.

And, as a former ice skater, this just blows me away every time I watch it:
