“I have reached an age when, if someone tells me to wear socks, I don’t have to.”

~ Albert Einstein

One of the great gifts aging gave me a number of years ago was an acceptance–a celebration even!–of the woman I am and a letting go of a desire to conform.

The other day when it was raining and cold I chose to wear my new flip-flops when I went to the store. I just had a pedi the day before and was delighting in my painted toes after a winter of wearing socks and shoes.

So what if most people were wearing jackets and there was nary another shoeless foot to be found. This barefoot girl was quietly celebrating the season anyway.


I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. I love this! I am much the same way (I will be 60 later this year). I can now “do what I want!” lol
    Very interesting photo. I adore flowers and enjoy your pictures so much.

    1. I have a friend who refers to this time of life as the”sweet spot”. Seems very fitting to me!
