So what does the TALINO team have to do with Loch Ness? You know, the home to some sort of elusive creature which we know as the Loch Ness monster or more lovingly as “Nessie”?

The quick answer is dedication.

About a month ago I stumbled upon a short biography about Steve Feltham.  He is a guy who sold his house, bought a van and moved to the water’s edge of Loch Ness in 1991 and is still there!  His dream is to actually see for himself (and hopefully document) the existence of the Loch Ness monster.

When you hear of someone giving up a normal life and selling what they own to chase a “monster” you immediately think… “that’s crazy”.  Especially when that person has been doing this for 26 years.  However, when you listen to Mr. Feltham talk he is a sane, normal and is an unbiased and scientific individual when considering various theories regarding “Nessie”.  Essentially, not crazy.

So, why live by a lock hoping for a chance to view a creature that has eluded locals and scientific expeditions for centuries?

The answer comes back to dedication.  Please take a look at his interview and pay close attention to what Mr. Feltham says around 5:09 of this video (//

Not only is he dedicated but he is also doing something that he loves.  Doing something that you love makes enduring years of anything easily possible.  We here at SUMURI and TALINO can relate to both dedication and doing something that you love.

When you work and do something that you love with dedication it separates you from those business who put making money first.

So, we totally respect and admire Mr. Feltham for his love, his dedication and his dreams!

In our appreciation of Mr. Feltham’s values we choose to purchase a one of kind “Nessie” sculpture that he personally makes from his website here.

This “Nessie” sculpture is now prominently displayed within SUMURI Headquarters as a reminder to our team on the importance of dedication and to never give up on what you love to do; no matter how crazy the idea.

For it is the “crazy” ones that discover the undiscovered, solve the unsolvable and inspire the uninspired!

Thank you Mr. Feltham!
