New word, old idea,
family or friends
living together
making it work
under one roof
like I remember,
cooking, eating,
laughing, singing,
sharing expenses,
worries, stories,
too familiar to be new
old idea, co housing.

This poem leaves me with such a good feeling for what your family is doing....

I like this poem...I especially appreciate the point that it is *new* in this instance but that really it is such an old idea. Dan just made a comment the other day that houses are getting bigger and families smaller – less kids and less generational overlap. What a treasured time this will be, sharing life together in this more interconnected way, especially in these early chapters of Liam's life.
