This interview with Annie and Kaye was conducted in the dining room of the Solaris building at Camphill Hudson on the 3rd of July, 2015.  Annie and Kaye had moved into a new apartment together two days earlier, both also now living in Hudson for the first time.  They had just met within the past week, so spoke out of the early stages of becoming housemates and friends.  Annie had moved from Triform Camphill most recently and mentioned living in other Camphill communities previous to that, as well as of her Childhood in Denver, CO.  Kaye moved from Los Angeles, her home city, where she’d most recently worked in customer service for Dish Network and AT&T.  The conversation revolved a lot around their new apartment, daily activities, shared interests, and their fondness for each other, but also occasionally broke off to each talking of their lives before moving to Hudson.

This interview might of interest to people interested in Hudson city history, Camphill Hudson, Camphill Communities and life sharing, and people with special needs.
