We interpret the world through our own lens. I have enjoyed listening to this song as a my motivational theme song to find federal funding for the activities and programs that we dream up at Recreation Northwest. As you know, our mission is to promote outdoor recreation and bring people together to enjoy, preserve and improve the places where we play. As we discussed today, we are mission driven and money motivated (we need it to function) in order to help get folks outside.
As for the Federal Funding from CAKE?
When I listen to this song these lyrics strike me differently:
Take your colleagues out to dinner, pay your brother to come and sing
The video from CAKE shows what their original intent was in their lyrics. I like my inspirational interpretation better. They also get points for Italian Guy 😉
The Good NEWS:
We are receiving Federal Funding to help us get back to work! But that’s a whole ‘nuther story that you’ll have to wait to read on The Confluence.
We’ll see what tomorrow brings. Enjoy that whiskey!
