Hi Ann, Thank you SO much for collecting stories. I'm preparing a speech to give to community groups. It will be titled: Creating Community through Cohousing: Have More Fun & Live More Sustainably. Can you email me Lori's story, please? And please share it with the CohoL list. Thanks!

Tell me a truth and I?ll believe. But tell me a story and it will live in my heart forever. ? North American Indian quote I find that the best way of describing what cohousing REALLY is ... that is, beyond the bricks n' mortar ... is through stories. People grok cohousing when they hear a story. A loooonnnng time ago, a member of this list whose name I think is Lori, wrote a post called: What I Like About Living in Cohousing. I still have it. I still pass it out to people who ask me what it's like to live in one of our communities. And we know there are a LOT of great cohousing stories out there. We don't want to lose any of them! What we ultimately hope to do with these gifts is create an online database where anyone can go read vignettes about cohousing. Someday we might even publish a book of them. This time ... we're collecting best summertime stories. Please have some fun by entering your favorite tale. And you just might win that $25 gift card. But you'll have fun regardless! http://www.cohousingblog.com scroll down to the announcement!
