i walk in bare feet in my garden.
my soles feel the dirt, the stones, the weeds, the prickle of the "shy" plant with the terrible thorns...
i prune, pull, plant and pray.
i need to be in my bare feet, despite the thorns and the stones.
how would i know what i was walking on if i could not feel it?
how could i pull each weed, throw away each stone, feel which part of the soil is dry and which is too wet, if i could not feel it?
skin to earth.
heart to life.
