Toothpaste Pants

“I have toothpaste on my pants.” I looked up from my squat position in the driveway where I was saying hello to my friend Ole’s two exuberant little dogs, Ziggy and Perdy, who had just jumped out of her car and were running in euphoric circles around me. “I need a washcloth right away,” exclaimed […]

Christmas Magic – Yoda and the Mailman

by Kee Kee on December 25, 2013

in Inspiration,Texas,Yoda

        A year ago last December, during one of those inevitable vulnerable spells that periodically bubble up when one is attempting to reinvent oneself, I found myself emotionally gushing to a friend, “I need to drum up some Christmas magic.  Where is the Christmas magic?!” After allowing myself a brief moment to […]

Create a Better Moment

in Change,Inspiration,Yoda

When will this headache end? This was the main thought running through my head for the past four days. It felt like someone dipped a corkscrew in fiery coals so that the metal screw was blazing red hot, then they repeatedly jammed that corkscrew into my forehead right above my left eyebrow. Next, they slowly […]

In a Galaxy Not So Far Away…

in Texas,Yoda

My sidekick is a dog named Yoda. My car is named Princess Leia the Prius.  You’d think I was a Star Wars buff, right?  Truth be told, I’ve seen the six movies only one time each, and I only just watched Episodes I – III last year. I can’t even tell you what happens in […]

It is Halloween and today I received an unexpected treat. A reminder of not only the warm generosity of friends, but also of the abundance of unconditional love in my life…from my dog Yoda. I returned from a couple of afternoon meetings to find a large package on my doorstep from writer Nancy Rector. I […]

Yoda Does Yoga

by Kee Kee on September 25, 2013

September is National Yoga Month.  Normally I wouldn’t care. Normally I would roll my eyes and throw National Yoga Month in the ridiculous category of other so-called Hallmark holidays like Sweetest Day or last week’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day. But this year is different. This year National Yoga Month is a bit special […]

Personal reinvention is at times exhilarating and at times exhausting.  Lately I’ve really felt tested.  I almost feel the Universe looking down on me, questioning, whether in the face of adversity, I’ll remain positive, in the flow, and committed to living with the cowgirl spirit, or whether I’ll crack, give up and go back to […]

  The road has become a great teacher of mine.  My road tripping over the past two years has brought me many profound lessons.  These lessons come in many forms. They may be personal epiphanies that come from being lost in meditative thought during hours of driving through the countryside. They may come from meeting […]

“Your dog is in your mate space.”  These were some of the first words out of the mouth of the Curandera whom I serendipitously met on my road trip in Hot Springs, Arkansas.  She said this before I even told her that I had a dog not so patiently waiting for me outside in Princess […]
