There is this woman (in her early twenties like me, I’m sure) I see frequently that doesn’t wear any shoes. I see her around campus, and she’s always barefoot. And, don’t get me wrong when I say this, but she has the prettiest feet. She’s actually very beautiful. She dresses in a kind of European style and has short pixie hair, which isn’t relevant but still noted. I passed her today in my car. She was riding her bicycle with a friend, still without shoes, and stopped in the turning lane next to me. I had to stop myself from staring. It’s an inspirational feeling. I look at her, and I’m driven to walk everywhere barefoot. It’s taking the TOMS no shoes experiment to an extent that leaves me lost for words. I don’t even know this woman but I like her. Is that wierd?
I want to go places without shoes. I want to have the courage to do that. I think it would be wonderful.
