Our culture scout, the incomparable Brandy Agerbeck, settled in to watch the inauguration and couldn't stop her pen from moving. She dove in and created this map of the issues addressed by President Obama in his inaugural address. Where on this map does your work fit? Where does your organization fit?
Our interests and commitments must lie somewhere on this map if we are expected to be a part of things. And based on all the energy being generated by this administration--we'll all want to be "in" not "out." Not just because our collective future depends on pulling together, but because belonging to something greater than ourselves is so deeply rewarding. For the RenGen, the generation now charged with re-inventing our society, the alchemy is setting up perfectly for the coming renaissance.
