I just spoke to the board of Neighborhood Housing Services Cleveland [whoa 1994 site de­sign!] about my trip to Nashville. They foot­ed the bill so it was on­ly right that I tell them about it. The board has folks from all kinds of Cleveland ser­vices as mem­bers and the City Council Chairman Martin Sweeney was there speak­ing about a pos­si­ble col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Council and NHS. Two oth­er fel­low trip-tak­ers al­so talked about their work­shops.

I ran in­to Lou Tisler from NHS this morn­ing at Lucky’s, pick­ing up bagels. The on­ly thing is, I didn’t re­al­ize he was Lou Tisler un­til I ar­rived at NHS, since I’d not met him be­fore. The NHS build­ing is al­so hous­ing a cu­rat­ed gallery by Bridget Ginley. When com­mu­ni­ty ac­tivism, third-space co­in­ci­dences and lo­cal art col­lab­o­rate, it is a recipe for a hap­py Adam. Sometimes I feel like some­thing huge is about to hap­pen in Cleveland.
