I stubbed my toe quite often but it was worth it to feel the world beneath my feet. Maybe, if I had been allowed sneakers...

Aghhh!! Torn between laughter and sympathy! Still, as it happened in the past, I guess all is well now and your poor toe has fully recovered. Bet you still don't wear shoes tho'!

LOVE the little notes! Shoes, yes...

By the way, I was just thinking about you last night, nice to see a new post!

Oh yeah ... this was a HUGE part of my childhood!

Lynn said...

Ouch! This brought back memories of childhood. Great sketch!

OUCH!
That said, I much prefer to go barefooted as well; at least when it isn't too cold to do so.

Yes,as Ronell writes, so vividly done, it hurts to look at it. But that's our destiny, Alison-- I still don't wear shoes until the arthritis and back scream at me. And as soon as I dare, I kick them off again.
A love affair, it seems, that my toes have had with the ground for 75 years.

Ouch, I can really feel it. Hurt toes and hurt fingers are worse than gut-aches I think. I hate shoes and never wear them inside the house or our compound.(Fiji families take shoes off at the door anyway.) I have feet like the Beqa firewalkers I reckon.

Och!!! I can feel the wince. The painting is well done so much that you feel it.
I hate shoes. Some times I like going out and just stepping in the snow in the winter with no shoes on. Only for a moment though.

Ouch - that happened to me often too, and the accompanying comments. I still loath covering my feet with anything but air.

When I was little I'd always run smack into the doorway with my forehead and toe, so I feel your pain. And your drawing looks extremely painful too!
