Two roles in New View are worrier & optimist, who I will nickname 'Nancy' and 'Steve', for the purposes of discussion. Both types of people are very active on committees, speak up at meetings, etc. A 'Steve' type of thing to say would be "There's no real problems in the process now: we will all be moved in by October". A 'Nancy' sort of thing to say would be "We don't have all the permits we need yet: they say it should be routine, but if it takes more than two weeks, it will cause delays in the construction. 'Steves' comments, if they are believed, are very reassuring & help the group carry on. 'Nancys' comments, if the isssues are taken seriously, stir the group to focus on what details & issues need to get taken care of. -Jim Snyder-Grant Jim_Snyder-Grant [at] lotus.crd.com New View Cohousing Acton MA
