I like to ski. I really like to ski. One of the benefits of skiing (in addition to it being fun all on its own) is that fantastic feeling you get at the end of the day when you take your boots off. Your feet are finally free after a day of being locked up in ski boots.
Well – from a glass half full perspective – I get the pleasure of having that great feeling in my feet every day. Unfortunately it’s not coming with the fun of skiing. The (walking) boot is – well – the boot. After being fixated on minimalist / no shoes for so long walking (clunking) around in this thing is quite the experience. My son came up from the basement after my first day in the thing and said smiling “Well – I’m always going to know exactly where you are in the house.”
I got into this thing 1.5 weeks ago. The plan is for me to be in it 1.5 weeks more. Unfortunately, things don’t feel totally better. I wonder if I’m heading for a cast.
On another note – I received an email today from a guy who had a great quote in his signature. How perfect for those of us that like the minimalist/barefoot mindset:
Fixation is the way to death. Fluidity is the way to life.
-- Miyamoto Musashi
Here is to more fluidity in our lives.
