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.

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

Chris, that's wonderful!  I'm so happy for you that you have students who appreciate you, and they should!  You're a terrific person! <3

Patricia, looking forward to learning the outcome of your husband's tests. How are you doing? 

Comment by Joan Denoo on September 9, 2014 at 9:38am

Chris, your students clearly are fond of you and show their appreciation in such lovely ways! Your kindness, humor and good teaching technique have an impact on your students.

Spud, I checked on your comment about the right hand side of the words being cut off. When they were first posted, I could see the entire comments, and now they are gone.

Chris, so nice to hear about your great students.

Patricia, hope to hear good news about your husband.

Ian, funny food label.  Must have been made by someone overconfident about their command of the english language, like I see constantly in instructions for electronic devices.

Chris, what nice people (students)! I would have eaten all the chocolates in one sitting!

Patricia, eager to hear how your hubby is doing. It must be tough on you to be separated like this. You have a positive attitude about it all.

Chris, what an absolutely wonderful first day of class! How appreciative your group is. You must be great fun to be with.

Ian, I never ate one of my grandmothers..

How exciting to have started my first lessons of the season! I hadn't even hung up my coat before I got a bunch of carnations and a beautiful card (Russian tradition), someone else brought chocolates from Austria, there was a CD with songs and lyrics I can use in the lessons, there were big hugs, someone brought the cooking pear harvest and shared with us all - I brought enough home to share with some neighbours. Wonderful, all these people who are glad to see me! I even had some time left to do some teaching...
