On some level this feels like composing a Personal Ad, but with a specific kind of new age focus. Somehow writing about myself always engenders a variety of feelings because I (naturally) wish to communicate both the facts and my nature, whatever that is. I never feel fully satisfied that the nature part comes across. Maybe I should stick to "Just the facts..." as Officer Friday would say. Anyway, here goes... I moved up to Hanover, NH, about 2 years ago and became involved in a Cohousing group through my lover and contacts at the local Quaker meeting. The current status of the group is unclear, as several key members recently dropped out to buy their own land. The remaining members of the group maintain their interest in Cohousing - perhaps a more apt description of the group is "evolving" or " reformulating" rather than "disbanded". My own interest in Cohousing is based upon the value I have in "Community". I am one of those people who seems to work and live best in an environment where there is a personal involvement and a connection between me and the people around me. I have known about cohousing for about 5-6 years, having learned about the concept through some presentations in the Portsmouth NH area. An ideal image for me is a site in this area ( I feel connected to the so-called "Upper Valley") that incorporates agriculture, common land, and discrete housing sites. I heard about this list through Quaker-L, the Quaker concerns electronic list. I receive my e-mail through my worksite - I check it consistently throughout the day, Monday-Friday. Jim Greenleaf
