Mo will have 2 surgeries on her knee Wednesday...she inherited my father's knees, poor thing. I don't think she has given thought to having/needing to give up her stiletto stomps...or at least the wisdom of doing so....my Mama always said you can wear cheap clothes but you can 't wear cheap shoes. There is no substitute for a good shoe that supports your entire body and not just look good on you while you're standing still. But mind you, when I was 23, I too loved my heels but I equally loved my earth shoes and Bass sandals. At 52 I've totally given up the heels...yet, there is nothing like a solid, new and well worn earth shoe or "earthy" type shoe. At 18 I was guilty of walking across campus in my my pointy toe stilettos but the more I studied feminism, the more self assured I became in walking (pun intended) away from anything designed to exploit my body in the name of pain. Mo tries to convince me that today's mile high shoes do not hurt the feet when walking....yeah, if its to the mail box and back.
For the next few weeks, I'm going to suspend the weekly accountability and just "flow" with it. We'll be pitching in to help Mo and the grand babies anyway we can after her surgery. My time in the studio will be catch where catch can.
