Final installment, Up The Wall Tour: Update #4 – Detroit to home

In Detroit...
We stayed with Kim Hodge (in Lathrup Village), organizer extraordinaire and founder of the Michigan Alliance of TimeBanks, who hosted and co-facilitated the two days of trainings we did.

The trainings were in a great church in Detroit, the Lighthouse Community Church on Wyoming St., thanks to Joan and her son the pastor.

First day we focused on identifying and engaging stakeholders – the organizations, groups and individuals who can help each timebank meet its goals.

We went through how to identify... [read more]


Up The Wall Tour - Blog #3: Ohio – Montreal

After spending the night of 10/18 with my parents we drove 7 ½ hours from Ohio to New York City, where I met up with my friend Sabrina and her husband Lewis and had a grand time starting to catch up. I never get to see Sabrina and she's just wonderful so this was a happy time. They have a cute and really funny 2-year-old, Augie who I started to get to know pretty quickly.

October 20 was the Contact conference at a very cool building in the lower east side, called Angel Oresanz. Lent itself to the kind of creativity the organizers... [read more]

Stephanie Rearick's Up The Wall CD is now available

Rearick's new CD, Up The Wall, is a return to form, four years in the making after 2007's Democracy. Side A is the political and economic side, side B gets personal. Part rock and roll, part sweeping beauty with some quirky ditties and jazzy piano numbers mixed in, Up The Wall is another remarkably original and fresh offering from Rearick. While primarily original songs, the covers here come from Dusty Springfield, Nina Simone and Yoko Ono.

Piano driven songs range from simplistic melodies to complex layers of looped trumpet, vocals... [read more]
