Read from the Book

"Always maintain a kind of summer, even in the middle of winter." Henry David Thoreau A life in flip-flops is a cheery life (it's hard to take ourselves seriously when our shoes are making funny noises). It's a slow life (difficult to run in such flappy shoes). It's easy (slide in-slide out) and sunny (wear SPF on every toe). It's a life as casual and silly and colorful and sweet as the designs upon our feet. When we open up our feet to the sun, our lives seem to open up also ? to the stars and the moon, to the sky, to the possibilities of the horizon.
