Dear Patty Mara Gourley and co-housing list members, Thank you for your warm words and concern and, please, forgive me the delay with the answer. Yes, indeed the idea of co-housing seems to be spreading fast, still faster in Russia than in Ukraine, but the hope is that the background experience of the nation as a whole would stimulate the process. The collective nature of the Slavonic nations has been more than once stressed and at some points in history it was considered a natural base for the communism (which is currently a threat in certain sense). In the post WWII period the USSR had to solve the housing problem and at that point the ?communal flats? and youth cooperatives were seen as an answer. My Mum still believes that the only true way of making tomato soup is the one of aunt Gala ? a communal flat neighbor of her, which does not oversimplify my cookery endeavors. I was pleased to receive a copy of shared household by-laws from Allen Hancock and really helpful references and info from Robyn Williams, Alison Truesdale, Amy Rountree, George and Rosannah Stone, Hans Tilstra and I would like to thank them, but still as I obviously enjoy the process I wonder whether it is really possible to search the archives if there are any. And I would really appreciate the ?Statement of Community Principles? that you mention.You see we do not have the example at hand of how it should be and all kinds of descriptions the lengthier the better are really welcome. Would the same dance apply to healing the land? A colleague of mine has just started a project on restoring the fertility of the land devastated as a result of coal mining practices. He is applying some technology based on processing the waste soil resorting to some natural phenomena- certain California worms among them. The situation in the areas where the mines are closed is bad enough, so it is desirable to combine community building and environmental techniques. I would really like once again to thank the list members for the warm welcome and response. I was really touched and promise to join back whenever I think I have good news to share. Warm regards, Yuliya Begma __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Great stuff seeking new owners in Yahoo!
