It was posted by Fred the Cohousing-L list manager <fholson [at] cohousing.org> because the message included HTML ; PLEASE do not post HTML, see http://csf.colorado.edu/cohousing/2001/msg01672.html -------------------- FORWARDED MESSAGE FOLLOWS -------------------- My heart goes out to George and his family for the pain that this experience has raised for them. By frankly and openly presenting what he sees as the situation...what I hear is a cry for peer support and understanding. When you are in the emotional "heat" of the moment, I think this list is a most helpful to look for the "outside" insights from the many very wise contributors. Issues around our housing and home life are so emotional for most of us and we have received so little training in being supportive of others. Shared housing always brings plenty of opportunities for personal growth and healing. In this forum some mindful insights from others in this group would be so helpful to the rest of us....who are hanging on every word here... It would be too bad if we don't hear fully from others in that cohousing group because of a fear of being sued and being advised by legal counsel not to comment further. George's concerns and needs are of utmost importance to those of us considering cohousing as a personal choice. Knowing how this situation resolves itself will be instructive. Finally....a word of thanks to all of you for being "in community" here via the net. Reading all of your posts over the last few months has kept me going....just knowing that there are others out there who have accomplished what we have our hearts set on is a blessing.
