Not My Shoes - by Angela Josephine, blog post about authenticity, running
Posted by Angela Josephine Category: Writing Tag: , ,

I’ve come into the house momentarily blind from running in the blazing sun. I am quick to kick these sweaty shoes into a dark rectangle otherwise known as the hall closet. The Asics are still airborne when I realize I have to go back outside and fill the bird feeders. Feeling around with feet only, I slip on a pair of my clogs and head out the door.

Back in the light of day, I am startled to find very masculine dress shoes awkwardly clinging to my feminine feet. (I thought they felt a little loose!)

I’m wearing someone else’s shoes and wonder if I would have stepped into them as quickly and genuinely with open eyes.

  1. Great post… hey if you ever get to LaCrosse WI, I would love to coordinate a house concert or one at church as a fund raiser for the Habitat for Humanity.I have contacts with Thrivent that they would throw in matching dollars and email 3500 members in the area.Dave

  2. I read a fair few blogs (mostly home education or crafty ones), but this particular post is one I come back to again and again. I love this story – the silliness, the simplicity and the insight. And I just wanted you to know.
