Barefoot In The Grass
I remember that as a child I used to love to walk barefoot in the grass. Whatever happened to just enjoying the simple things in life. I wonder sometimes why we can't live as simply as the bird...or is a bird's life as simple as it seems. I know that the older I became the more aware I was of things in the grass I didn't want to step on or clean off my feet. Now I won't walk in grass without shoes. I miss the simplicity of being a kid. I miss the feel of the grass between my toes. I wonder if wiser is always better or if being wiser simply takes some of the joy out of life. When I took this photo, I envied these birds walking barefoot in the grass.
