A Musical Interlude

When engaging in conversation with White Oak resident Matthew Mason, no matter how brief, one will eventually learn about the importance of music in his life. Expect to be asked about your own tastes and affections, too. Matthew will be upfront about the sustenance he receives from this art form, and he will no doubt guide you into the genre of European heavy metal music his favorite style. When a bad day or feeling arises, Matt relies on his familiar two supports: “My best friend to talk with…See More

Welcoming Places

 Have you ever been to a place where it just feels wonderfully good to spend time there? I am thinking of places that offer an open sincere welcome, and possess such a sense of warmth and open energy that it feels great just to be there. In my neighborhood I know of several places like that. One such place is Happen,…See More

Community Does Amazing Things

This is the number one thing i have learned over the past 4  or 5 years, people do amazing things. In "Relationships Brewing"  see how a small group of people are making a HUGE difference by creating a place of unbelievable hospitality, especially for kids in their neighborhood. Attached is Our Community, November edition from the ABCD Team in Cincinnati.Happy Holidays!See More

Meaningful stories

Attached is our recent newsletter from the ABCD Team in Cincinnati. The story of Linda and Richard speaks of the power of places where people are welcomed and there is room for everyone to share their gifts. I think that is evident in this story.  What is most meaningful to me in this story is the information that is missing. That is - Sometimes/often connections JUST happen. I did very little in this story other than find the place and invite my friend Richard to come check it out and do some…See More

Ordinary people doing EXTRAORDINARY things

I am so amazed by people i meet that are doing the most amazing things. I am attaching a recent newsletter which highlights some of these "treasures".I am also amazed by the power of creating a space for people to come together around anything such as the Community Pot Luck(see newsletter). What ideas do you have for bringing people together?See More

A Lost Art

Although Linda Love is a fashion artist known all over the world, her gifts and love for her craft are noticeable here in her home town. Her dream was to open a sewing school here in Cincin- nati to teach and spread her exuberance for clothing.

 

Linda Love’s mother, Minnie Loopes Jones, was a…

Tripp has an uncanny memory. When he was 5 or 6 years old, his parents hired someone to fix their hardwood floors. A year later they wanted to get some additional work done and were not able to remember the repairman’s name. Tripp overheard the conversation and commented, “That is Mr. Quizenberry, the wood guy.”

 

Tripp moved to Cincinnati from Blacksburg, West Virginia, with his mother so that they could be closer to his sister and her family. He didn’t know anyone but his…

Westwood Works is an evolving discussion rather than a movement. It started as a gathering of citizens in Westwood who wanted to focus on what is right about their community and build on the assets of the largest neighborhood in the city.

 

They began by supporting a local artist who was applying to have a mural painted in the neighborhood and needed support. This group of committed folks stepped in and endorsed the application and now a beautiful mural exists on Harrison…
