We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

Self Portrait Challenge; A Well Loved Vehicle

This is my first Self Portrait Challenge post. Since the topic is bits and pieces I thought that I would photo my feet. They are my favorite part of my body, not because of their looks but because of what they have done and where they have taken me. The one month that I could not use one (ten years ago) was the longest of my life. Walking is my preferred method of getting places, but my feet have also peddled bikes, climbed rocks, danced with my husband at our wedding, and kept me up right for all of my long labor. It is though walking that I have understood my soul, made friends, discovered small places, seen mountain tops and climbed trees.
