    "We are the music makers,
    And we are the dreamers of dreams,
    Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
    And sitting by desolate streams;
    World-losers and world-forsakers,
    On whom the pale moon gleams:
    Yet we are the movers and the shakers
    Of the world for ever, it seems."
    - Arthur O'Shaughnessy, "Ode," 1874

    Just North of San Francisco, California in the magical mountains of Mendocino. A hidden escape tucked cozily amidst the Manzanita, Madrone, Agave cactus and Palm tree overlooking the lake and valley below. Surrounded by nature yet close to town. Humming birds hoover about as the sunset dips beneath the horizon. The sunrise greets you with misty mornings and soft awakenings. Everyday is an inspiration! Satisfying work that feeds the soul and vision of a beautiful future. We are mindful of our environment treating our space as an evolving sanctuary.
