Barefoot...

Around these parts, the air is warm and the sun is shining. My spirit on the other hand did not get the memo. I wanted so badly to shut down. Most of the morning... spent by a window but by 12pm I was bored with myself. I think I was missing my lover and the friends that it introduced me to. I decided I needed to reconnect to the source... to the earth. I grab my camera because it helps me see. All the things that I would normally miss and take for granted. Barefooted and gloomy I did not expect much of the backyard.

But there was a cat willing to stand next to me..

And there were flowers blooming...

Wild strawberries growing along my path...A hose that when the water hit the ground the smell of grass and dirt took me back to that one summer underneath that one tree with the yellow flowers. To that one afternoon when brother carved with a knife his initials on the tree trunk. Only the birds will remember his fierce determination and I will pretend to not have seen it while I stood there barefoot.

Take off your shoes unplug and go outside until then...

Stay Sweet!
