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.

Thanks Ian.  Actually they just called me to let me know they're normal.  I wasn't worried, but nice to get confirmation.  Have a great weekend.

Hope the mammogram went well, Melinda.

Sagan's experience with MJ fits almost exactly with my first experience with tobacco! I experienced synaesthesia -I could SEE music - and felt that, for the first time I really understood harmony deep down in my soul. Probably why I got hooked for the next 39 years.

As far as mj goes, I loved the first few times and wanted to stay stoned all the time but then it turned nasty on me and caused severe panic attacks. That was probably for the best, otherwise I would have become a chronic stoner.

Weather here typical autumnal: mild, wet, windy and changes twice an hour.

Good weekend all.

Tony, that IS a beautiful picture!  I'm glad you put it up!

Steph, I love the sarcastic cat. :)

Wow Joan, snow already?  It's in the 50's here in Northern Illinois, and it's supposed to be 60 and sunny here tomorrow.  My husband is going to take his Corvette for one more spin tomorrow before he puts it away for the winter.

It is now official, my winter hibernation starts today; we had 2+ inches of snow last night and the garden is absolutely gorgeous! 
I have never had a cigarette in my mouth, nor have I tried MJ. My only experience with it was while in graduate school, every night students got high and acted so silly I just didn't want to participate. I still don't like second hand smoke, whether tobacco or MJ. That old victorian upbringing holds a tight hand, but at least I can disregard its chatter when I want to. 

I really am looking forward to winter, even if it predicted to be a "cold/hot" one. Last time we had such a winter I lost a couple dozen roses to the freeze/thaw patterns over and over. Everything was well protected, but it could not stand up to the fluctuations. So, perhaps more will die this winter. It's OK because it will open up room for more vegetables and fruits. 

Hope everyone is warm, well fed, doing something you like to do with someone you like to be with, and content.

It's true, I had the same experience with cannabis; it's really wonderful to smoke a joint and look at art. But I've also seen a lot of people who used whatever they could find as an escape from the problems they should have faced, and there are more reasons to be careful with cannabis. Tobacco is a much nastier addiction, by the way.

I take it elated-cat is being sarcastic.  Hehe :)

Hugs to you Ian - I love that Snoopy.

Booklover - I love that Irish cat!

Tony that looks like it is a picture from the National Geographic.

So how is everyone doing this Friday?
