Kiya’s Teachings

It’s so easy to get lost in useless details, chasing the same dishes around the kitchen day after day, wondering when I’ll ever know how to live “right”. There’s no satisfaction in my perfectionism. Then Kiya comes along and re-minds me how to be presentĀ  by the everyday things she does.

Everyday, she learns and grows into more of who she already is. A bright and sensitive, complex spirit monkey. And then some.
