We are humbled to share with you a very special video for “All Wash Out”. Please take a moment to watch it and read the story behind this beautiful soul named Sophie. 

Life is precious.

Books themselves are perhaps the first chatbots: long-winded and poor listeners, they nonetheless have the power to make the reader feel known, understood, challenged, spurred to greatness, not alone. On the other hand, we might notice that writing, the medium of literature and the Turing Test, leaves out much of what makes language tick: timing, prosody, emphasis, tone. Language is more than libretto; we shouldn’t settle for the sheet music when we can have the performance.
