And we have a master team with lots of practice, For some reason having more to 
do with the stars than the community, we have had a lot of sales in the last 3 
years. 5-6 this year and more in other years. Relocations for jobs, age, death, 
better schools, etc.

And they have facilitated voluntary contributions to our capital 
improvement/special projects fund. We now have $40,000 for new projects. And 
sales have been organized and much smoother for sellers and buyers.

While not having rules or requirements, the new residents have been 100% 
cohousing appropriate and jump into tasks, teams, and meals.

As an artist, I worry that we are becoming too institutionalized, but there is 
less unpredictability and more efficiency. I wake up longing for some post 
move-in chaos, panic, and table pounding.
