When my wellness-coach, Natalie, saw the article about my Burnt Food Museum in the Boston Globe, she said it made her think of the piece I debuted in my shows last weekend, a 15-minute musical stream-of-consciousness that weaves together some of my favorite songs from childhood – songs I’m embarrassed I still love – and never felt that, as a performer, I could share on stage.
Natalie reminded me that when I finally worked up the courage to develop the piece, which explores what I’ve lost by leaving childish things behind, that I said I loved performing it because “It celebrates something people are ashamed of.”
The Burnt Food Museum article in the Boston Globe brought out that same impulse, she said.
Ahhh, it’s nice to know I’m consistent.
Also nice to know that my wellness-coach considers Burnt Food a healthy part of my diet, since it’s what I cook best.
