I've long had on my wish list a desire to include a monthly distillation in /Cohousing Magazine/ of some of the best posts that appear here. The recent "Why I like cohousing" posts is a prime example of what should be preserved and disseminated as widely as we can.

So is there a would-be columnist out there willing to distill some of coho-L posts for inclusion in the magazine -- so we'd have that much more cross-pollination between the two?

Let me know what you think.

Many thanks to all who have written so eloquently on this topic.

Craig's post is one of many beautiful examples of what I treasure and yearn for in our forming community. I read the suggestion about an article in the newsletter based on a compilation of these posts. Rather than that, I'd prefer to see a compilation of this topic as one of the main resources on the website. It's that important that people get a sense of what is so different and yet so possible. I see an imbalance toward on the physical buildings, the land, the architecture, how to acquire land, and these posts would help lend an essential balance for folks who are considering cohousing toward what is least visible and yet essential, in my opinion. The community aspect of cohousing is what keeps me going above all else, toward our goal.
