“Yes no yes no yes no?
Red blue?
Yes red, no blue?
No red, yes no?
In out, up down?
Do don't, can can't?
Choices sit on the shelf life
New shoes in a shoe shop.
If the in crowd are squeezing into a must-have shoe
And the one pair left are too tiny for you
Don't feel compelled into choosing them
If you're really a size 9, buy that size.
While everyone else
Hobbles round with sore feet
Your choices should feel comfortable
Or they aren't your choices at all.
Why limp when you can sprint?”
David Baird, Fiesta of Happiness: Be True to Yourself

“They found grace out in the desert,
these people who survived the killing.
Israel, out looking for a place to rest,
met God out looking for them!"
God told them, "I've never quit loving you and never will.
Expect love, love, and more love!
And so now I'll start over with you and build you up again,
dear virgin Israel.
You'll resume your singing,
grabbing tambourines and joining the dance.
You'll go back to your old work of planting vineyards
on the Samaritan hillsides,
And sit back and enjoy the fruit—
oh, how you'll enjoy those harvests!
The time's coming when watchmen will call out
from the hilltops of Ephraim:
'On your feet! Let's go to Zion,
go to meet our God!”
Anonymous, Holy Bible: King James Version

Steve Rasnic Tem
“I was never very good with either my hands or feet. It always seemed to me they'd just been stuck on as an afterthought during my making.

Steve Rasnic Tem, The Man on the Ceiling

“My hands aren't yours to reach and grab.
My feet aren't yours to walk.
My back's not yours to ride and stab.
My tongue's not yours to talk.”
Calvin W. Allison, The Sunset of Science and the Risen Son of Truth

“Some people consider feet to be unclean & dirty, but they are what is in contact with the earth beneath us; they are the first thing that touches the water in the oceans & seas from whence we came; they lead us to where we want to go in life; they can be a source of laughter and sensuality; they help us to count to ten, and they are part of us.
So if you believe feet to be unclean, then so are we.
But if we take good care of them, then they will look after us in our time of need, and give us a whole lifetime of enjoyment.
I love my feet, and you should love yours too.”
Anthony T. Hincks

Elaine Castillo
“One day one of the girls, Felt, says to the group: You know how they say rich people have red heels?
You have, in fact, always heard this growing up: that poor people have dusty, gray heels, and rich people have smooth, moisturized heels, red with health. You have a tendency to hide your feet, even though you've always rubbed cream into them religiously so they won't look like your mother's heels, desert-cracked. Well, I have a trick, Fely says, showing all of you her smooth, impossibly red heels. You just put merthiolate on it! Not iodine, that makes it orange. Merthiolate is the secret! After that, all of you take to staining your heels with the liquid antiseptic. From then on, you love wearing slingbacks, mules, cropped trousers. Years later, even as an adult nurse in California, sometimes you'll still put merthiolate on your heels.”
Elaine Castillo, America Is Not the Heart
