“What’s weird is being conditioned by society to not know your neighbors at all.”
Ben Brock Johnson does a wonderful job of describing cohousing in his article he wrote for NPR: The Case For Cohousing: Where Responsibilities Are Shared And Life Is A Little Less Lonely
“I love telling people I meet that I live in a hippie commune.
This is a lie. Or really it’s a joke, designed to prompt questions that I’m eager to answer. I actually live in a cohousing community, and not only is it far from weird — I think it should be a lot more common.”
