third day of barefootedness

August 13, 2007 at 2:28 pm (out and about, simple pleasures)

it was cold today. the ground was still mostly warm though. of course, you don’t know what it’ll be like before you leave the house in a hurry. the weekend made me think that at least midday would be baking again. it was quite a sudden warm spell; my feet weren’t prepared to be let out for three whole days – i can remember walking barefoot twice, briefly, since the end of last summer. my soles have stood up to it quite well, but my calves are in a bit of shock.

it’s lovely though, feeling the ground beneath my feet, the texture of the world. it makes me breathe deeper and remember there are good things in life, even if they’re not big.
