Sharon, I like that approach. It endorses flexibility while still offering 
clear and positive guidance and actionable suggestions.

“That isn’t cohousing” was heard often early on but after 15 years, it is 
usually “What we usually do is ….” Often with a range of options.

What is a problem is when people say "just use your common sense." In a diverse 
community, everyone has a different sense of what is common. We want diversity 
but we forget it means: No “common" sense.
