Like many other Cohousing communities we've had some ongoing and evolving challenging times collectively agreeing on how to navigate the murky waters of Covid-19, and the requisite precautions needed in Common Space (especially when the regulations and guidelines for the state change every week). Someone in our CoHousing just posted a poem about a flock of crows that circles noisily around our Coho. I sent the email below and thought I'd share with you all because the analogy and humour seem apropos for the moment! It always amused me that a flock of crows is called a 'murder' And a flock of starlings is a 'murmuration'- a phenomenon as beautiful and magical as the word itself. And somehow all of this seems an analogy for CoHousing- A flock of us can be a 'murder'- or a murmuration... :) Here's a video of a murmuration it's worth seeing through https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRNqhi2ka9k Cheers Chris On Sat, 9 Jan 2021 at 19:00, Melanie G <gomelaniego [at] gmail.com> wrote: > Chris, thank you for the clarification.
