I Found Shoes.
Remember when I cut out the soles of my shoes because I would rather go barefoot, and can't stand shoes at all? Well, Yesterday I suddenly found my shoes. After all those years. You can't see it, but they have a very thin sole, and wearing them is a bit like wearing sturdy socks. They make you tread carefully because there is no cushioning, and you have to remember your paws and how they actually work instead of hammering down your heels onto a layer of foam with every step. And look, they are foot-shaped! See the little bulge for the little toe? Yay!!
I bought them in Brighton, tired out from an event, and put them on and walked to the pebble beach. I could feel all the pebbles under my feet, and was struck by such happiness that I just lay down, with my trolley bag full of sock monkeys and sketchbooks as a pillow, and had a nap. - These are Vivo Barefoot shoes, just in case you hate shoes too, and the thing in the background is the sea, in case you can't tell.
