" Forget not
 that the earth delights
 to feel your bare feet
 and the winds
 long to play 
with your hair.  "

Khalil Gibran

" Keep your eyes
 on the stars, 
and your feet
on the ground.  "

Theodore Roosevelt

" Heaven is under our feet 
as well as over our heads.  "

Henry David Thoreau

I have spread my dreams
 under your feet; 
Tread softly 
because you tread
 on my dreams.  "

William Butler Yeats

" Ah, the patter of little feet
 around the house. 

There's nothing 
like having a 
for a butler.  "

W. C. Fields

Today I'm enjoying
the fact that I am not
limping anymore.

What happened
is not important.
It was minor,
and on the mend..

It's amazing
how the body knows
the ways to favor injuries
without thought
on our part.

As the injury mends,
the limp changes
along with it.

Today I am
remembering how to walk
without a limp;
A limp,
or a flinch,
 can become
a habit
you know.

What other stories
does my body tell?

Do my shoulders still
with a shame,
or fear,
or reticence
that my mind
long since
 let go of ?

" Life is very sweet
just walking down the street-
not all of us
can use our feet. "

Just for today
let's celebrate
overlooked, common
such as walking,
a companion,

" You have brains in your head. 
You have feet in your shoes. 
You can steer yourself
 in any direction 
you choose. 

You're on your own, 
and you know
 what you know. 
And you are the guy 
who'll decide where to go.  "

Dr. Seuss
