Hang With Friends

Latest Activity: yesterday

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

FA, beautiful. Love the Fifth Dimension. Such perfect pop. What I really like by them is the Laura Nyro songs they covered, like 'Stone Soul Picnic', and 'Save the Country'. Such beautiful harmonies.

Kit-Tea is cute.

Good day everyone!  Did you enjoy your extra hour of sleep?  I certainly did.....and I needed it as well.

Tony, thanks for the music.  I'm constantly listening to music.  It's such a great mood enhancer. 

This song ALWAYS makes me feel good, so I thought I'd share it with all of you today.  Hope you enjoy.

You're welcome, Felaine. I shared them because they turned up at the right time for me too.

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!
