Dancing with the Fairies

Sole Sister: KELLY  
Single mom, forester, artist

Ontario, Canada

I am on occasion a barefoot kinda gal, often found in hiking boots, or flip flops. These particular ones were bought, who knows where, on a whim. I liked them. They are my favourite colour - blue. And they sparkled! I am not your typical blingful girly-girl, but every now and again she yearns for some freedom, and out she pops. I wish I could walk in heels. 

 I wish I could put on make-up like a pro, though probably wouldn't wear it any more than I do now, which is once in a blue moon. I never wore jewellery until I started to make it myself, and I am lucky to brush my hair before leaving the house! These flip flops suit and serve me well. They are a reminder of the spirited young woman i once was, while appreciating the slip on, easy going personality that I have earned. 

They reflect my inner playfulness, and somehow make me feel magical, and like dancing with the fairies (me and my little girl do that a lot). Life sometimes can bring you down. These shoes remind me of the inner Kelly, whimsical and light, and inspire me to be the me that is sometimes forgotten. 

Which reminds me, gonna go slip them on, grab my little girl, and join the fairies...feel free to join us if you like...

Salma... Cool site; you are CREATIVE! I'm so excited to see what you will do with those journals!!

Hi Kelly. I knew I would begin to get to know you some with following you around (creative circle journal friend), but I had no idea I would get to see our foot and sandal! ;) How cool is THAT! :D

Actually...I love it! I actually learned a little more about you, too. What do I do to be featureed here and show off my sandals?

Thanks Corine, it's fun to look at shoes and feet and see what lies beneath.

I also know a little more about Kelly from this exercise as well.

I would love to share your story here, just click on the "contact' tab at the top and the submission info is all there. Looking forward to seeing your shoes (or) feet.

This is such a fun post, yet so deep in a way that it begs you to remember the little girl in you that was once like a fairy, always happy, ready to dance, enjoying life, nature , just being me.

I like it.

And you wear that flip flop very well!
