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.

It's getting on toward peak color season here on the North Coast.  I'm lucky enough to have some truly beautiful examples of it literally right outside my door and a short walk around.  So I thought I'd break out the Olympus and record some…Continue

This one seems a bit creepy, like the middle one shouldn't be able to change rotation like that. from Cheezburger.comContinue

Good morning my friends. Off to take care of stuff that's been neglected past couple of weeks, will be home later. Until then, how about some Harry Chapin? 'Sunay Morning Sunshine'.

Ian, thank you, THANK you!  I desperately needed some graphic reminders that everything is NOT always sukky!  (That's why I haven't been posting much...learned something I didn't want to know about a friend, and I've been hiding from the world, not getting anything done, reading fantasy fiction, and so forth and so on. "Hallmarks of FELAINE-ity"))

Thanks again!

Booklover I just love that Kitty in the teapot LOL. Fantastic way to start a new day.

Oh cool another fan of They Might Be Giants and Queen.

Oh how sweet - thanks so much Melinda (booklover) - that's the best compliment I could ever have. Really made my day. You are the best Melinda.

Tony I am so glad to see you back -we were truly worried about you.

Tony, so glad you're here!  Big money for you working all those hours!  I love They Might Be Giants and Queen. :) I hope you get some rest!  Steph and I were concerned when we didn't see you on here, but now we'll know you are working a lot when you're not here.

Steph, what I said is true.  You're the nicest person I've ever met on the internet!!!  (Probably 'in real life' too!).
