I will be happy to keep a database of reactions and make it available on our site. IN ADDITION: I'd love to keep track of and know the array of other reactions/feelings towards living in cohousing. Send me SHORT one-liners about: Post move-in Breaking Ground or others. The site-page will list the topics of "What people say about cohousing" Thanks Mike Mariner.
