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.

I'm not a news hound by any stretch, but I do like to stay informed about what's going on in the world. (I despise "local" news with all the reports of murders, robberies, fires, etc.)The national "evening" news shows really irritate me. I hate…Continue

I put that cat pic up Ian, and Loren, I think it's cat-rate!!! :)

Comment by Ian Mason on December 24, 2012 at 7:50am

Is that a feline martial art, Joan? Kat Fu? Or a Catnam Style dance?

Comment by Loren Miller on December 24, 2012 at 7:45am

Hmmm ... that pose looks vaguely like a flying side thrust kick ... is that karate or cat-rate?

Hello Kayla!

Great pictures everyone~ :)  I'm glad you had such a good day Joan!  We are going to my in-laws tonight.  Not my favorite place to be (lol) but my mother-in-law is a good cook and I like for my kids to get to be with their cousins. :)  My son (18) has to work until 6:30 p.m..  It's a grocery store, and I'm sure it will be crazy-busy!I love the coloring of this cat, and this 'pose' is adorable! lol

Chris, booklover, Paricia, and Steph, your photos are priceless. I can't believe there are so many pretty, beautiful, inviting photos of cats in the world. I really like that balding gentleman and cat peering at each other. Flying Atheist, it is always a pleasure to read your contributions and comments.
