O.K. I've got to get my 2 mils worth in here too. One of the folks who came and went during the past few years of my coho journey said her goal was to live in a "cool neighborhood." She admitted that after a year or so in the suburbs, her definition of a cool neighborhood had been reduced to one where people were willing to walk their dogs without a leash. I have been incredibly inspired by the book Cohousing and have been working for three years to make it a reality for me but I'm not attracted at all by intense, intentional community. I love the practical aspects and the way cohousing allows community to grow slowly and organically by making it easy for folks to share everyday things (meals, tools, laundry, public and semipublic space). I'm not putting down those who long for more intense community. I just want others on this list to know that there are some of us out here who prefer thing a little more low-key.
