Hello All, I joined your list right after returning home from the Cohousing Conference in Sacramento two weeks ago... been lurking 'til now. I'm not and haven't been part of any official cohousing group, but have been thinking and talking to friends, through the ups and downs of 8 years, about cohousing. I am touched by the sense of community, both within the individual cohousing groups as I experienced them at the conference and also within this network of cohousers linked by computers. At the conference and in your archives I've been looking to see if there are homeschoolers among cohousers. (So far I've found some interest, but no practice.) I am homeschooling my only child, an 8 yr old, with the help of his dad and in connection with a local charter school set up by long time homeschoolers to support us newbies. Homeschooling, in my view (and like cohousing...again in my view), is done with the belief that it can facilitate the broadening and deepening, as well as the flexibility, of the connections possible. (I am, I hope clearly, not talking about fear based isolationism.) So, if you're still with me, I'm interested in feedback and as it is possible, being directed toward folk with affinity. I'm happy to talk via the list or directly: kim [at] scruznet.com Thank you, Kim
