I have grown to appreciate the other cohousers’ range of talents, qualities, and quirks.
Soon, I will be looking down into the courtyard and see Debbie or Carl sitting with a cup of coffee; then I can take a break from scoring papers and join them. For my exercise breaks, I can ride my bike down Ralston Creek. And, when families move in, I can offer parents or kids a sympathetic ear, as my neighbors did when I was a single mother. Outstanding.
