Honey, Let’s Do It

The new year is here and in rare fashion there are new shoes to mark the occasion.  N and I do not do presents in the traditional sense related to holidays, anniversaries or birthday notating.  Rather we celebrate moments as we find them.

So, today on the first day of the rest of my life there is a share inspired from the “free” collection.  I adore the idea of intending free feet.  However, attempting to not buy totally into commercialism, in my home it is not the pre-programmed message of  just do it, it is rather honey, let’s do it in 2013.  Touche!


Then I met an Englishman
“Oh” he said
“What are you afraid of”
“Won’t you walk up and down my spine,
It makes me feel strangely alive.”
I said “In these shoes?
I doubt you’d survive.”
I said “Honey, let’s do it.
Let’s stay right here.”

And from Nike:


After learning that Stanford athletes had been training barefoot on the university’s golf course, three of Nike’s most innovative and creative employees set out to develop a shoe that felt natural and weightless, simulating bare feet. In 2002, they examined a group of men and women with pressure-measuring insoles taped to their feet, using high-speed cameras to capture each foot in motion.

 The team spent eight years studying the biomechanics of shoeless running. The results yielded a profound understanding of the foot’s natural landing angle, pressure and toe position, allowing Nike designers to build an unconventional and flexible running shoe from the inside out.,pdp,ctr-inline/cid-1/pid-461926/pgid-461928


M as free, unconventional and flexible from the inside out… oh, yes please :).

One thought on “Honey, Let’s Do It

  1. Yes, today it is new year shoe as spiritual teacher. It is shoe as external manifestation of deep truths in the life of M. It is Nike on the sacred alter that is my entire theater of life .

    I bow this first day of 2013 to the Gods of the sexiness of good looking shoes. 🙂 I am getting better and better at creating and drawing to myself the best props ever.

    EVERYTHING is spirit (when we remember).
