I am friendly terms with many religious believers. However, I am always having to muzzle my thoughts and censor my words to avoid offending. I believe people can be frank about beliefs without being offensive or insulting. I would like to meet other people who feel the same way.
I am a human being, so I have faults and occasionally lose my temper and speak intemperately. However, I have worked with people from many backgrounds usually on amiable terms and usually demonstrating respect for them. When I make an effort, I can be a good and respectful listener. I have been married to the same woman for 46 years. My daughter (now in her 40s) still speaks to me, as does her partner, and their 8-year-old daughter.
I am taking the first step of starting it. I am getting old. I will need help in getting it started and keeping it going.
Hoping to meet other non-religious people on Whidbey Island.
Life is full of surprises. Surprise me. I was surprised how well it went. Good ideas shared. I will say "good to see you" metaphorically as I don't have the technology yet to "see" people literally, but I sort of "channeled" everyone else.
