Fortunately, most groups have at least 1 person who >is willing to help others. Yes, I've observed that most people just want to live their lives. At Nyland I've spoken to several folks over dinner who are actually interested in "the movement" but who just don't have the energy for it -- now. So, other than this list and writing articles and giving tours, is there any way we can coordinate among the one person in each built coho group that *does* want to put out some effort? My personal answer is writing my book, hopefully with input from other folks like Rob, once more of it is written. But there are so many good things that could be done -- from lobbying zoning officials to influencing traditional developers to finding members for new coho groups. There used to be the "burning souls" who met before/during the national gathering.... Mike M Nyland
