Barefoot

When I was a kid, I loved walking everywhere barefoot.  I’d wander my grandfather’s farm, go through the fields and the woods, all barefoot.  Now I find I need at least something on my feet even at home in order to avoid either having cold feet or having my heels hurt when I walk on the tile.

Turns out I should have kept my childhood habits.

The New Yorker Magazine has an article written by Adam Sternbergh titled “You Walk Wrong.”  He points out how we’ve evolved over 4 million years to walk everywhere barefoot, yet in the last few thousand we’ve wrecked it with the invention we call “shoes.”

Think I’ll kick off my shoes more often.
