On Oct. 18 Joani Blank discussed that we need to find a way to market the process of building cohousing. I couldn't agree more! As with so many things in our culture, its the 'thing' we yearn for, not the process of yearning.I wonder if cohousing can even appeal to non-process oriented people? Does anyone out there find their community attracting people other than those actively on the path of growth? Those are the people who will get the value of getting it built. Maybe only those people are the one's predisposed to being able to accomplish a task as formidable as building cohousing. Does this sound like resignation to you (it does to me). As for whether there is intrinsic fun in the process? At this point it hasn't outweighed the intrinsic work. This probably means my group needs to have more fun.
