Extraordinary Shoes In Ordinary Places

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “(Extra)ordinary.”

These ordinary Rockport walking shoes are my second pair. The first pair I found while living abroad in Barcelona. This pair (pictured) was purchased on Amazon a few months ago and there was only one pair left in a size 11. They were meant for my feet.

  
These shoes have taken me to extraordinary places and have received the notice and compliments of complete strangers, as well as, friends.

The story the soles carry, as well, are nothing short of extraordinary. Follow the story of where these shoes might lead me next on my blog and Instagram.

Today my friend commented on this pic on Instagram,  “great shoes”.

I replied, “they’re slowly in the process of abandoning me.”

He said, “let ’em carry you to the very furthest unraveling edge.”

I thought. . . I definitely will since I live for the extraordinary. Previous personal blog post asks the question, “Are You Ordinary?”

Happy Place: Barcelona on a Mat

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Happy Place.”

My happy place is usually when I’m on my mat and practicing at a studio with group energy. However, a strong passion of mine is also travel. When I’m in a place where I’m photographing next to a historical landmark, I tune everyone out around me and I’m in my happy place as well.

 

Arc De Triomf, Barcelona
 
This photo has three important happy places in one: my mat, in Barcelona at my favorite landmark in my soul city.

Lack of Boundaries

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Boundaries.”

It is commonly said that lack of boundaries in relationships can cause for unhealthy tension or hazardous interpersonal relationships. Boundaries are undoubtedly important in our relationships, as well as, dangerous places such as 2000ft fjords where thousands of tourists frequent yearly.

  
These photos are taken in Norway (Preikestolen, Lysefjord) while practicing yoga asana. More on my Instagram page.
With a clear lack of boundary on those cliffs, a wrong slip or imbalance, it would cause extreme hazard to one’s life. Read full article on Unfearful of Death; Unfearful of Living for full story on my experience with this boundary-less area where Norwegians decided that chains and safety measures were unrequired.
