We can, and often must, make do with what we have, and adapt our activities and 
behaviors to the limitations of our environment.  But yesterday (Sunday) at 
Cornerstone, we had a general meeting of the members with 30 participants, and 
then served a common meal for 40 persons.  Very few houses can accommodate 
groups of this size.  While I would never seek to prohibit a cluster of homes 
from calling itself cohousing, the common house serves a unique and important 
function in the cohousing lifestyle.
