Friday Ramblings!

Its Friday...almost time to kick back and relax for another weekend of xbox, ps3, and perhaps finally getting around to seeing I Am Legend (the title always makes me want to scream it like king Leonidas from 300).

Nothing too serious today. I just gave a short presentation to management about the importance of web 2.0 (expect a post early next week detailing the sessions I'm giving to staff). I've been listening to Incubus's Science album a lot this past week, and one of the songs tittled "New Skin" has been my mantra for a few days as I prepare to try and shake some things up around here. Not sure if it will mean anything to anybody else, but to me, it exemplifies the position in which the credit union movement now sits.

"New Skin"

At first I see an open wound
infected and disastrous
It breathes chaotic catastrophe
it cries to be renewed
Its tears are the color of anger,
they dry to form a scab
To the touch, its stiff and resilient,
underneath, the new skin breathes
As outwardly cliche as it may seem,
yes, something under the surface says,
"C'est la vie"
It is a circle, there is a plan
dead skin will atrophy itself to start again
Look closely at the open wound
see past what covers the surface
Underneath chaotic catastrophe,
creation takes stage.
Its all been saved
with exception for the right parts
When will we be new skin?
Its all been seen with exception for what could be
When will we be new skin?
Fallacious cognitions
spewed from televisions
do mold our decisions.
So stop and take a look,
and you'll see what I see now

Hope you all have a great weekend!
