It’s the one thing that I have a hard time not looking at while I’m walking around the house, and it’s a good reminder of my place — the place I am in my own skin. It seems that I’ve always been an observer, someone who has to look at something often in order to feel it. For me, this is a bad thing.
One of the things I like about the shoe is its shape and the way it allows me to feel like Im a part of it. By putting the two together I get the sense that it’s not just me, but the shoe that’s in my skin too. It also reminds me of how I like to paint my walls and ceilings, so I feel like Im getting my own unique look in the process.
Mahalese and I were talking about this the other day and he pointed out that in the way that certain people view their bodies, it is often the way they view their inner self. They see what they put on the outside as being their real self, but that’s not always the case. For example, I think it is very important to learn to respect your body and its parts, as they are not all the same size or shape.
For me this is the most interesting point. In my mind my inner self is like a big ball of mud and I think that this is why I tend to take my self as being rather large or round. When I paint my walls and ceilings, I think Im making a statement about how I feel about myself. I mean sure I may not be the biggest or strongest person in the world, but I feel like Im getting the most from my body that I can.
When I was a kid I would often take off my shoes in the morning and leave them on the breakfast table as a way to think about how I feel about myself. I think this was probably a way to communicate some sort of emotional state to others, but I have to admit that it is one of the least embarrassing things I’ve done. I just think of my body as being this enormous ball of mud without any meaning. If I want to make a big statement, I just leave it.
The idea of leaving shoes on the ground, especially in high traffic areas, is pretty great. The idea that we can leave ourselves as a symbol of our emotional state is one that I personally love. In a world where the internet has made it so easy to express ourselves through text, leaving our shoe on the ground to represent our emotional state is pretty cool.
That’s just me though. I think the other shoe is to take the shoes off and leave the world of shoes for people with more intellectual tastes. Not to mention shoes that are easier to get off of.
I know that I’m not the only person who thinks the shoes might be a bit much, but I thought it looked pretty cool. The idea that we’re the symbol of our emotions is one of the things that makes my life in general so much fun. As I said, the internet has made it so easy to express ourselves through text. I’m not sure I like this shoe idea though.
That’s because this is basically just an online shoe store where people can upload their most embarrassing shoe photos if they want to be called out for wearing the wrong thing, and then the store will give them a new pair of shoes.
I don’t know if this is really what you’re trying to say, but I think it’s the “why do I still think this is funny?” part that people are looking for. The joke is that every time I wear something that makes me feel uncomfortable, my mind wants to laugh at it. I think that’s the key thing in this whole idea.
