Last week, one of my fellow cohos and I attended a campaign planning meeting at the home of our future next door neighbour, Ian Gartshore, who is running for the Green Party in British Columbia's provincial election. As we stepped outside after the meeting, we heard the beautiful symphony of frogs croaking in the pond on our property.
I keep on catching glimpses of what it will be like to live at Pacific Gardens Cohousing Community. It gives me goose bumps to think that I will be able to open my window at night and hear the Earth sing.
When I see the kids at the school across the street playing during recess, I hope that this song will endure for them and their children and their children's children.
