On the move

This week, Dunes.

Dunes never stay the same. They are constantly being pulled down and put up. It’s like they March across the landscape.

Of course, the landscape itself is on the move. Nothing stays still. The tectonic plates shift, the planet spins, the galaxy expands.

Like so many things, the ‘fact’ that the earth is solid is just another convenient fiction by which we choose to live our lives.

Most of us choose to say that right now, as I write this, it is 8:46 pm, on Monday, December 12, 2011. At least, those of us who live around here choose to say that. In Sydney, Tokyo and LA they choose to say that it is some other time. We can easily forget all of this; that this is our convenient agreement. We can get ourselves into a lather stating that it really is 8:46, how silly we can be.

I like dunes because, if you pay close attention, over weeks, days sometimes you see the movement, the truth of the world.

The true price

Here is a story. I have no idea if it actually happened and I don’t care, I know it is true

Someone broke into a high-end jewelry store and all they did was switch around all the price tags.

Shoeless

Surely wearing no shoes has to be the very best thing about summer.

The souls of your feet moving from carpet to slate, to grass, to dirt, to sand; each time feeling the surfaces and knowing them in a new way. The heat of the sand, the cool of the grass.

Going barefoot has to be one of life’s great joys.

Splashing those same feet in water perhaps the highest joy.

For reasons that are too crazy and stupid to mention here, being nude and having all your skin alive to the elements is frowned upon in most places and is actually illegal in many. So, it is just our feet that can do it, those little rebels. Throwing off shoes isn’t quite as liberating as throwing off clothes but it might be the best hope we have in most places. If no one notices, you might even be able to get away barefoot in that great religious edifice, mall.

Liberate your skin. At least liberate your feet where and when you can.
