It was late in the summer,
so of course there were no shoes to bother with.
John Steinbeck (The Red Pony)
One of the things I miss greatly in winter is the ability to go barefoot. I certainly have been enjoying feeling the grass and the earth under my feet. There is a name for this, it’s called “Earthing” – connecting to the earth through our skin. If you read about it, some people say it’s healing to the body because of the electrical energy of the earth. I don’t know if this is true or not, but it certainly makes me happy all summer long. You’ll find me going barefoot as much as possible until I have to put on shoes.
What about you – shoes or no shoes in summer?Filed under Quote | Comments (18)
