Building, beers, heavy equipment operating; building a house takes priority over making a home.That is all here too, it has to in order for this place to grow, but there is a softness in the spirit of the people who are here that absolutely encourages beauty and sharing; that purple the intellectual Permie world often tries to separate and even denies. It's what sets Ant Village and the whole of what Paul and Jocelyn are trying to accomplish here.
Gayful laughter, alters of flowers and sweetness in well traveled paths, art, skirts, soft and squishy hugs, ears that listen and comfort, medicine making, food crafting; that fine feminine touch that heals and uplifts. There is just as much emphasis and need for that as there is for big earth works.
