I'm not sure if this is just me, but I love being barefoot. It's very grounding to me and awakens my senses. It is really weird when I think about it, but it is like I have extra sensory whenever my feet hit the ground. The best time is in the summer when the driveway is really hot (not scalding hot) and I can just place my feet there for a while and walk across. The most simplistic way I can explain this feeling is it is kind of therapeutic.
I wonder if anyone else understands what I am trying to say here. Whether the ground is hot, warm, cold I prefer being without socks and without shoes (unless of course I'm walking on an open rock-like areas, dirty areas, or sharp areas). I'm talking about smooth surfaces like hardwood floors and tile people.
I invite you to join in on my therapeutic discovery and maybe you will like it too. I find that I like being close to the ground. I prefer sitting on the floor over a chair any day (mostly because there isn't a generalized manner of sitting that is expected of anyone). You can sit in criss-cross applesauce form, some weird yoga pose, or whatever other way you can imagine to sit. Above all, you sit COMFORTABLY.
My personal desire is to one day have one of those tables where it's like a Japanese style table where you sit on the floor and have a table low to the ground. I'm not sure why or how this came to mind, but it just did and I felt like sharing. Maybe my idea is crazy and maybe it isn't. Hopefully someone can relate, as I always wish when writing.
