shoes, metaphorically and not

Jun 15, 2007 | My Creative Practice, Wear Your Joyβ„’

i know i’ve mentioned this before but i think it would be really fascinating to have a photo essay, or display of some sort (a shoe journal?), of all the shoes a person has worn in their lives, from baby shoes on up. metaphorically, i think it’s cool, and non metaphorically, i think it’s cool. the representation of shoes being our journey, the very things that actually carry us along on our path, and not to mention the different styles one goes through, seems so interesting to me lately (i have no idea why). our shoes. they say a lot. and i’m stickin to that theory however trivial it seems.

with all of that said, i’ve never been a huge shoe fanatic, but since discovering the yellow shoes i’ve broadened my horizon to blue, turquoise, and even green. who knew? it’s my birthday month and to celebrate i bought these little darlings on a birthday splurge (something i rarely do). i’ve never bought 3 pairs of shoes all at once, and i gotta say, it was pure shopping fun, and it was liberating in a way. i had no guilt about buying these beauties, and that was a gift itself! about one hour after the shoes arrived at my doorstep, i received a call. a good news call that had me calling my mom afterwards and screaming with delight. i’ll share the news soon, but these shoes will be journeying with me on some pretty exciting roads.

Sending much love,
