Welcome to Waeve Check. We are happy to have you here. 

 As we've been be working tirelessly on our relaunch, we wanted to share the literature, cinema, and music that continues to shape us as we are navigating finding cultural niches in our increasingly digital landscape. These songs, these words, these movie scores have blown us away, inspired us, and pushed us throughout the month, as we are reinventing and reimagining our identity.
