“It’s a happy talent to know how to play” – Ralph Waldo Emerson.

The Emerson is inspired by 19th Century American Essayist and Poet, Ralph Waldo Emerson.

A visionary, he believed life was to be lived, that parties were to be held and if you were going to do something great, then you better have fun while you’re doing it!
