Barefoot Goddess Blog, day 56, 9/3/10
Every day feels special. Since shoes on one’s feet is such a basic expectation, often times when I leave the house, there is a momentary impulse to look for them. Or I notice I’m sans shoes when I look down at my bare toes as I navigate the wooden front steps. In that moment, the routine is interrupted as I realize “Oh, I’m barefoot.” I’m pleasantly reminded that my life is not the sum of non-profit status paperwork, refinancing, class and event planning and data-bases.
My life is the sum of that and of breathing in the sun-warmed air, of feeling my heart expand with love for the shiny-black crows who clean the sidewalk, for my lovely husband who set off to work early this morning, for Brooklin who taught such a nice workshop here at the Green Lake Spiritual Center last evening…thank you, Brooklin.
