Excerpts

<p><em>"Always maintain a kind of summer, even in the middle of winter."</em><br><em>Henry David Thoreau</em></p><p>A life in flip-flops is a cheery life (it's hard to take ourselves seriously when our shoes are making funny noises). It's a slow life (difficult to run in such flappy shoes). It's easy (slide in-slide out) and sunny (wear SPF on every toe). It's a life as casual and silly and colorful and sweet as the designs upon our feet.</p><p>When we open up our feet to the sun, our lives seem to open up also — to the stars and the moon, to the sky, to the possibilities of the horizon.</p>
