Whip It...
¡°Crack That Whip...
When a problem comes along, you must whip it
Before the cream sits out too long, you must whip it
When something¡¯s going wrong, you must whip it¡±
Devo is an American punk rock/new wave band formed in 1972 consisting of members from Kent
and Akron, Ohio. The classic line-up of the band includes two sets of brothers, the Mothersbaughs
(Mark and Bob) and the Casales (Gerald and Bob), along with Alan Myers. The band had a No. 14
Billboard chart hit in 1980 with the single ¡®Whip It¡¯, which got heavy airplay in the early days of
MTV. ¡®Whip it¡¯ is a truly great song because it doesn¡¯t use a whole lot of words to convey a very
powerful message, while using an appropriately fast and fun dance beat. What is the message? Get
up, get moving, ¡°go forward, move ahead¡±, whip whatever it is that needs doing into shape. Stop
procrastinating; ¡°It¡¯s not too late, to whip it good!¡± Do you have a problem or something that needs
doing? ¡°Whip it!¡± Get ¡®er done. ¡°When a good time turns around, you must whip it. You will never
live it down, unless you whip it. No one gets their way, until they whip it.¡± If you keep waiting for
motivation, if you keep waiting for someone to do it for you, if you¡¯re afraid to ¡°step on a crack¡± and
¡°break your momma¡¯s back¡±, if you don¡¯t whip it yourself, and whip it good, the problem will grow,
the cream will spoil, you will miss the moment. So get to cracking and ¡°Crack that whip!¡±

The silverhawk feather that graces our front page was chosen for it¡¯s significant spiritual
symbolism. Hawks are symbols of spirit, wisdom and power. The hawk is the messenger.
It is also about visionary power and guardianship, the hawk is very protective of the young
in its nest. It teaches us about providing for family and self. Hawk teaches us to be obser-
vant and to pay attention to what we may overlook. This could mean a talent we don¡¯t use,
a blessing for which we haven¡¯t expressed gratitude, or a message from Spirit. The hawk
has keen eyesight, it is about opening our eyes and seeing that which is there to guide us.
Hawk is also about new beginnings and always moving forward along the correct path.
