Here, here (or rather there, there)! At yesterday's NICA gathering, a long-time community seeker admitted that his standards are "so high" that the number of communities that meet the criteria in the U.S. is probably zero. I suggested that maybe finding a place that meets just some of his criteria might be better than living alone. He has decided, instead, to focus more on building broader community for his family - around where he lives now - in a single-family home, rather than seeking an existing intentional community. That being said, he expects to continue to network with those involved in the communities movement - Why? Because he likes to relate to people who care about community enough to try and create them - even if we have not gotten it quite right (in a way that meets his very specific needs).

My advice to seekers is to find a place to get some real community experience for a couple of years, THEN, go looking for your ideal dream world. With a couple of years experience you will have a more realistic understanding of what is possible and reasonable, and your own bottom lines for what is important will become much clearer and reflect community realities as opposed to wishful thinking.
