✨Webinar β€” Fractional CFOs: How to double revenue, reduce workload and add more value to your clients. Feb 22, 2024 at 1:30pm PST Register now


Born in garden sunlight.

In harmony with spring.

Living off the landscape.

Like every living thing.


Rivers smooth the mountains

Animals trim the trees

People help each other 

In the evening breeze


Lessons passed through generations

Sharing information slow

Communication speeds up

Ending status quo


Stories group the people 

Ideas swarm like bees

People fight each other

For imaginary needs


There is no way to stop it

The Word extracts its price

Defining Us distinct from Them

Was Our only vice.
