The Tale of Chef Kale experience is an imagination driven exploration of wellness. Learning how to articulate this work and create what I see in my head has been risky. Sometimes, I have toremind myself that I'm growing out loud with this; all my mistakes and failures are out in the open. I also have to accept that this work is going to change and evolve. Chef Kale may not look the same way she does now in a few years. That thought alone is a bit unsettling. But then I remember watching my favorite TV shows as a child. There was Rugrats, Proud Family, Doug, and Pepper-Ann! Looking back at the very first episodes, there was major changes made to each character over time. And I can't say that noticed the changes either! I just knew about the good feelings that came with watching those shows. The laughs and the fun! Realizing that helped me realize; we are allowed to grow out loud with our art. My lesson of the year!
Until next time. Take a nana to the head!
