[Some of you may have heard this before, but this time I think we mean it!] We'd like to learn what we can from those of you who have commo n houses -- try to have our mistakes be new ones rather than those that have already been made by others... One member made the delightful suggestion that we should ask for "guest speakers" from other communities who could show us pictures and/or plans, and tell us of the community's experience, and let us ask lots of questions. This posting is to try to conne ct with individuals who might be willing to do this. Or course we would dearly love to have such guest speakers come here in person, and I would hope that we can find some volunteers in the New England area who would be willing to come to Maine to do so. Although we obviously don't have guest accomodations in a common house, we do have guest accomodations in individual houses. And we have beautiful cross-country ski trails, and an ice skating pond, and glorious fields and woods and warm fires and hot cocoa. And 19 families in residence who would be most appreciative of your time and effort. You don't have to be The Design Expert from your community to play this ambassadorial role. If you have an inkling that you might enjoy sharing your experience with another community, please send me an email. If the idea sounds good but it's not feasible to travel to Maine, how about a phone (or video?) conference? While this wouldn't give us much chance to show our hospitality, it could still be a fun and informative session. Again, let me know if the idea intrigues you, and we'll figure out what will work. Thanks! -- Zeke Holland -- Two Echo Cohousing, where the kids are hoping for LOTS more snow this year than last (I hope so too -- just not on Fridays when I'm signed up to clear the paths!) _______________________________________________ Cohousing-L mailing list Cohousing-L [at] cohousing.org Unsubscribe and other info: http://www.communityforum.net/mailman/listinfo/cohousing-l
