Fun Shoes

Stanley and I went bike riding a couple days ago.  The weather was beautiful! He enjoys riding as much as I do.
All that fresh air and excitement...and a rest felt good in the sun.
As I was sitting there, I got to thinking about "fun shoes".  Did you ever notice how when you wear your "fun shoes" you just automatically have a good day? Maybe it's because we wear those shoes when we go out to play.  Maybe it's because when we wear those shoes we smile more. Or maybe it's because when we look down at them, they bring out the inner child in us.  We forget all our problems and worries and just have fun. They give us a little added bounce to our step. They are the signal to stop working and play.
In our local souk, this display of fun shoes caught my eye.  The local girls seem to love these bright, funky high heels and you see them frequently peeking out from under their very serious looking, black abayas.

Maybe if we all wore our fun shoes everyday, even with our serious clothes, we would look at the world through more playful eyes and the world would be a better place because of it!

Wearing fun shoes is in a way like breaking rules, especially when we get older!
