On a recent morning, I again was reminded of how cohousing offers us a way to live more purposeful lives and to make a difference. We can be better people in cohousing.
While waiting for our cohousing neighborhood to be built, my husband and I live in a classic condo building. Like many condo buildings, it is designed in a way that hinders interaction with our neighbors. In fact, we rarely see them.
The other morning I was saddened by the message board at our mailboxes. It appears that someone asked for help and another responded with, "Are you kidding?"
How sad is this?
Contrast this with how cohousers believe in knowing and helping their neighbors. Life is so much easer, and a lot more fun, when we work together.
I hope you will join me in being a part of cohousing and creating a world where we no longer witness a sign that says, "Are you kidding?" when someone asks for help.
