An Ode to My Daughter 

by Johanna Björk, Rasāsvāda’s Design Director

To my daughter, Lee, you are my joy and my inspiration. Each day we spend together reveals new wonders, as I discover the world anew through your eyes. In your laughter and your smiles, I find the purest form of happiness. Holding you close, I am reminded of the magic that surrounds us, and your presence washes away all worries, leaving only a sense of wonder in its wake. You teach me to be present and embrace each moment with boundless love and endless curiosity. As we journey together through life, I am filled with gratitude for the love and light you infuse into every moment, expanding my heart in ways I never imagined possible. Life with you is an adventure of the best possible kind, and I am excited to see where it takes us. 


An Ode to My Twin Sister 

by Charlie B. Phinney, Rasāsvāda’s Business Development & Growth Associate

To Grace, my mirror in life and my best friend, my ode to you is etched with the ink of unspoken understanding and shared experiences that only twins can fathom. From our first shared breath to the countless milestones we've navigated side by side, your influence has shaped me into the person I am today, and for that, I am eternally grateful. Your spirit, resilience, and love not only mirror the best parts of myself but also inspire me to be a better man. In you, I see the reflection of my highest aspirations, my silent vulnerabilities, and my cherished dreams, all met with an unwavering support that fuels my ambition and pushes me further. No matter the circumstance, I know I can turn to you for anything, without hesitation or doubt, and you'll be there—unquestioning, unwavering. In laughter and tears, in triumphs and trials, you've been my steadfast companion. Together, we've navigated the complexities of life with an extraordinary, unbreakable bond. Here's to the shared memories, the inside jokes nobody else gets, and the silent understandings that only twins can know. 


An Ode to My Mother 

by Connor W. Godfrey, Rasāsvāda’s Founder

In the bustling streets of New York, we roamed, our steps weaving between cracks where dandelions bloomed. Every walk was an adventure, the city’s vastness our kingdom. As your firstborn, our bond transcends words, an unbreakable connection forevermore. Your heart, a boundless well of kindness, pure and true, always there to lend a helping hand. You taught me right from wrong, your values still my compass, your guidance my lighthouse, illuminating the path ahead through life’s greatest storms. With power boosters on, we wandered far and wide. Each street told a story, each turn a shared delight. Those walks are a treasure I'll always hold dear, shining brightly in the vault of my memory. Pookie, my mentor, my heart’s first home, I strive to emulate your strength and kindness. Your commitment to aiding others is a beacon for me, your lessons the framework upon which I build my life.
