Answer To Today’s WordPress Prompt: What are your favorite shoes?

********************************************************************************

My favorite shoes are the untied ones.

At what point in our lives do we notice that our shoes are untied without a well meaning adult pointing it out? Is that the exact moment that we loose our innocence?

To wake up in the morning and tumble headlong into life…this is perhaps what we are seeking. The freedom to be wild in this world. 

Especially now, with the pressure of social media glaring and grinning without respite…selling, judging, enclosing our short and precious lives into the borders of our cell phones…

How precious are these fleeting moments…hair uncombed, shoes untied.

Lost in a library with no mirrors, except those of your soul, swept away in the dream of a story.

Untie your hair, untie your shoes, and don’t take a selfie.
