Steel-toed shoes

Steel toed shoes

My neighbor Richard is a retired dentist.  I meet him regularly while I’m running and he’s walking his beautiful Alaskan Husky.

He’s one of the happiest people I have ever met.  He told me today that he loves to go backpacking and long hikes.  But he needed to put metal plates on the toes of his shoes because he’s always banging his toes.  The reason is because he’s always looking up at the beautiful scenery around him and never looking where he’s going.

Richard is 74 tomorrow.  I have never seen him not smiling.  We always stop and chat and every conversation leaves me feeling uplifted and a little giddy.

I think this is such a great way to live life.  And such a great person to be around.

May your toes be protected as you become captivated by the beauty around you and your life.

Love,

Ingrid
