As a company we spend endless hours rehearsing, giggling and sharing our
lives and we wanted to share a bit of ourselves with you. Rather than posting
tired bios with stats and degrees, each company member created questions for another.

Describe your perfect day
I would wake up clear of mind, energized and be filled with purpose. The sky would be sunny and blue. Temperature in the low 70’s with a mild breeze softly blowing. I would not have any worries this day and flow from place to place doing the things I wanted to do easily and without conflict. I would be able to make all the people I interacted with laugh or at lease smile. Someone would tell me I look handsome. Someone else would tell me that I am really good at what I do. I would receive a letter from and old friend and a very cute girl I never met before would give me a wink. I would be happy to arrive wherever I went and be content wherever I was. I would be reminded often throughout the day of how lucky I am and how wonderful it is to be alive in this world. I would focus out and find beauty in everything I saw. At night, sleep would be there when I wanted it and I would dream beautifully and restfully.
I hope to be putting into practice the lessons I am learning now. I hope to have found love or a better definition of what it is. I hope to be closer to the deaf community and have a greater understanding of their language and culture and be interpreting. I see having many new experiences that I cannot even imagine having now. I see myself being surprised by where my road has lead me. Sadly, I do not see my cat being with me five years from now, and that makes me very sad. I see myself having a car. I see myself traveling very far. I see myself furthering and expanding my art making practice. I see myself still not ever being completely satisfied, and that is a good thing.
