Lonely in a Crowd

This is Keegan’s post about despite there being 100 plus tightly integrated people at Twin Oaks, living, working and socializing together. It is still not enough for him (and perhaps me as well) and he wishes there were more regular social gatherings and points of connection.

    That is very interesting. It goes against what I envisioned of TO and other places like Acorn, etc. That is one of things that has always concerned me when thinking about visiting ICs. I’m a fairly quiet-minded guy and while I am not anti-social by any means, I do love my alone time and have always assumed that you don’t get that in such close communities.

      Having spent lots of time in various communes and co-ops, and being an introverted person myself, I can tell you that it’s not that hard to get alone time if you want to–in fact, because people are so busy and often wanting their own alone time, it can be harder to get lots of connection, even in the biggest communes, as Keegan points out.
