To Nancy Lyons' comments: Sure, work can be a significant commonality and community building block -- as long as the people are committed to cooperating beyond economic issues. Otherwise, as the I Ching says, as (business) interests change, friends (community members) change. Here's an alternative to the cohousing "schlag" it through is to find a small group of friends and create a community of 5 or 6 or 10 or 12. Buy some real estate together, then count on adding people as you find those who can bond with you. A friend of mine and her Mom just bought some land up in a canyon and they plan to add people one or two at a time. The ponderous nature of the cohousing method of creating a community seems to go against Taoistic grains -- it certainly is *not* the path of least resistance which is some kind oif natural (Darwinian?) law. =M=
