Permaculture Age Symbols 3: Colors, Archetypes & New Myths. Willi Paul, planetshifter.com

"Hey Willi - I really enjoy your New Myths, they provide a great future-imagining process, thanks for adding them to the conversation. My gut feel is that the community simply needs stories at the moment - future dreaming myths like yours, project experiences, course learning's, reports from guild meetings, the stuff of community sharing and belonging. I think discussions will eventually naturally flow when people are motivated by what they are doing, what others are doing around them, or what they dream of. For me, photos and videos of actual projects make a great start as they provide a strong visual inspiration (at least for me J) and potential conversation starter."
