Hi again - Thanks for all the thoughtful answers I got, on and off list, to my question about how long a commute cohousing is worth. I'm still wrestling with that one. My husband and I will be househunting in DC in early May and plan to actually do one of the possible commutes (1 hour 10 minute commuter train and a 15 minute walk) before we decide. One person asked about my current commute and how I felt about it. For the record, I drive 55 miles (one hour) on the interstate to work now - I go three days a week and telecommute the other two - and the cohousing has been well worth the 6 hours a week I'm on the road. A few people have asked what job could be worth leaving cohousing for. That's what I love about cohousing in particular and intentional communities in general, I don't think too many other Americans past the age of about 17 would ask that question seriously. Balancing one's life choices involves invoking individual values, of course. For us, community context matters a lot too, and living in cohousing certainly has made our decision to take a promotion - even for a really neat job - that meant a move out of our community much more difficult.
