>Time has come for me to say goodbye to the AXIS office. I have had an insightful and rewarding three months with the Company and I’m sad to be saying farewell (for now!). It has been a real joy to be a part of this passionate and creative team. If I had to pinpoint a highlight per month they would be:

September- Dance Access Day introducing AXIS to 800 Children and Adults, watching the enjoyment spread through The Malonga Theater.

October- Engaging Community through tabling events at local festivals and fundraisers, calling new and old friends to promote AXIS’ home-season.

November- ‘ODD’, rehearsing and performing with Shinichi, Joan, AXIS and inkBoat at ODC Theater and The Malonga.

December- Christmas Songs being played in the office all day long, making the survey data entry just about bearable.

I now have a month to explore as much of the States as possible. Tomorrow I head south for the winter, visiting a friend in Nashville, TN then on to San Diego and finishing with meting a friend in Las Vegas, a few days of partying and hopefully a trip to the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam. I’ll be back in the Bay for Christmas and hope to see LA and Lake Tahoe before heading back across the Pond the first week of January.

I want to take this opportunity to once again say Thank-You to everyone for a wonderful Fall and welcoming me into the AXIS community. I will be sure to take all the skills I have acquired back to the UK and show ‘em how it’s done!

Happy Holidays and wishing you all a great New Year!
