Barefoot Adventures in the Backyard
While it is not safe to go barefoot everywhere, you need to be careful about things like broken glass and nails and even some insects...it is safe in most backyards. And what a way to explore!
Your bare feet are far more in touch with nature -- with Mother Earth. You are connected to the earth and feel the temperatures, the textures, the sharp defenses of leaves and the soft squish of moist dirt. Barefoot makes you more careful about observing where you walk -- and that teaches you to look more closely. To observe which leaves are sharp. Which plants have stickers. Which soil is cold and which is warm --where the sun shines and where it is shaded.
In delicate habitat, you become more careful -- you crush less plants because you are paying more attention and choosing your footsteps carfully.
Walking and exploring barefoot is very refreshing. If you haven't tried it...try walking in a nice freshly tended garden. Feel the soft soil wiggle up through you toes. It's like a wonderful footrub...and Mother Nature sure knows how to give a great footrub!
