At a recent BEAM company retreat in Anchor Bay California, each of us was assigned to find some natural element on a beach walk that spoke to us — the texture, the color, the shape. After sharing our treasure, the collection was composed into this beautiful art scan. Like the diversity of these elements, each of us brings something unique to the table. And the potential contribution and beauty of our coming together through work and common vision is greater than the sum of its parts.

"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening, that is

translated through you into action, and because there is only one of

you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it

will never exist through any other medium and will be lost."

—Martha Graham
