[Powderworks] What are we here for?

Because many of us still like talking to each other.

We like to chat about the Oils, and we like to chat about all the things 
they stand for that brought us all to this place.  We like to find out how 
life is in other places and bitch or gloat about the weather year-round.

When we travel, we like to meet up and break bread or drink beer and swap 
stories and grow friendships.  Help each other paint our new homes and 
crash with three cats per futon.  Feed berry smoothies and peanut butter 
sandwiches to the youngsters and girlchat for a couple of hours until the 
Peace Train heads back north.  That sort of thing.

If that is not your speed, so be it.  Entirely understandable.  But this is 
a wonderful community regardless - I'll be hanging around until the party 
is over.
