Not known for his poetry; Tc has entertained his family with limericks for many years. His deeper commitment to poetry has been fleetingly exhibited in his manuscripts and his creative submittals to global poetry competitions; rhyming as the self-proclaimed Western Montana Poet Lariat. Tc’s latest poetic foray is curiously to return to the world of business. Based on his perpetual powers of observation; Tc’s pre-tumor decades working in the business world convinced him that the corporate world could benefit; both in advertising their products and in recruitment; from the soulful lyrics of poetry in their narratives about the family atmospheres of their companies; whether privately-held or public. So Tc now launches his own commitment to re-enter the world of business not as a trouble-shooter or investment executive or counsel but as a poet. Tc’s offer to businesses and organizations that want to proudly show-off their business souls is a commitment to take advantage of Tc’s rare combination of 4 decades of diverse hard-core business experience and the soul o fa poet and writer; to produce a company poem. Corporate Mission Statements are valuable but business narratives understandably tilt toward the economics of their organizations. Yet Tc’s insightful experience while interacting with so many employees who purposefully showed up daily, for years, to work and produce for their organizations; with so many of the same-type tenacious, good-natured personnel in so many diverse organizations is overwhelmingly; the inside-talk by corporate personnel reveals the feeling of family and loyalty and friendships amongst employees. In a phrase; depict the true character of the organization. What is a company’s responsibility in return for an original company poem revealing the heart and soul of its people? Simple; the organization hopefully would be pleased to donate any amount to the RAiLBAK-Hugs Foundation; which is referenced in Bigger Than a Book (or Two) on this RAiLBAK website. Happy Reading.

Hard times highlight life’s goals
When survival is so plain,
Simply hang onto the dream of purpose…
Until we awaken again. -Tc
