The strangest thing happened last week after this e-mail went out below. A student type younger woman popped into Cornerstone Cohousing community with a disposable camera and started to take pictures. I asked her what she was doing and she said she wanted to see the back of the house adjacent to our community - yet she started to take pictures of a lot of our property. Another Cornerstone neighbor saw her and came out and then I asked her why she lied to me. I was wondering why she was taking pictures of our community. She did not apologize but then gave her name and what she was doing there. She is a graduate student of the Harvard School of Design and was told to take pictures of porches. Preferably old porches and those that people really landscaped and transformed. I mentioned this book submission request and she said she didn't know what I was talking about and that it was for a class. Having a community near Harvard we do have a number of students that pass through but I do prefer it when we know who they are and that they show some courtesy and introduce themselves. I did give her a brief out side tour and showed her some of the porches that people had really done up nicely, but they were not what she was looking for since we are only 3 years old. She was from NY where porches are metal or fire escapes and was surprised to see ours in Boston are all wood. Even today.

Last week's newsletter had an item (below) about porches. The slide show I give has several slides of porches from Southside Park. I think there might be many other cohousing groups out there that have built porches because they are wonderful "transitional spaces." The deadline is fast approaching, so act quickly if you are interested. Over & out! --Diane(:^] MARKETING FACILITATOR JP COHOUSING 617-522-2209 P.O.
