Using Christ's Name in Vain

I’m an ex-hippie chick though some might disagree about the ex part.

I was actually almost radical back in the day and was friends with a number of political prisoners.  636 more words

Heaven on the roof

終於深深體會到何謂「騫翁失馬,焉知非福」。
走過了二百多公里的山路,過了十多天的野外生活,因為腳的腫痛而被迫暫時離開大隊是我最不願意的決擇。可幸的是意外地當上了數天的旅客,愛上了尼加拉瓜也愛上了里昂!
一個英國人,一個香港人和一個哥斯達黎加女生,一起坐在街角的cafe,歎著香濃的冰咖啡,於柔和日光下分享著各人的生活方式和態度,想不到身在尼加拉瓜也可有著歐式格調的享受。
沿著教堂內的石极拾級而上,天堂般的畫面怱然出現於眼前!
地上的小圓拱頂和圓屋頂塗上全雪白的油漆,驟眼看來像是一望無際的白山丘,配上慰藍的天色,當下真的以為自己活在另一國度裏。這裡跟中美洲色彩繽紛的街道風格實是大相逕庭,加上猛烈陽光形成的反射相當刺眼,使我無論是眼睛或是思想上衝擊都需要一些時間適應。
天台保持了教堂的莊嚴神聖,所有遊人必須脫鞋參觀並保持肅靜。而我當然也入鄉隨俗,赤腳於刺熱的地板上走著。站在市內最高點,欣賞著里昂的全景,感受著與天連成一線,我內心故然興奮,但同時熱辣辣的地板令我更像熱鍋上的螞蟻,最終參觀了二十多分鐘便要撤退補水了! 6 more words

Barefoot

Winter Solstice Rising

My feet are made of skin and bones.
With little hair, calloused toes remain bare.
Nothing to hold the heat during this afternoon hike.
I was born naked. 225 more words

Since 1938

Bathing Trunks worn in street. Since 1938.

I wonder if they wandered barefoot as well. Summer is coming. It’s hot. It smells like salt and this maxi dress is perfect with its vibrant pattern and white top to show off your tan. 14 more words

Ye Olde Schoolhouse

There was a feature in the Columbia Missourian back in 2009 about a field trip a local fifth grade made to a (replica) one-room schoolhouse. According to 11-year-old Amanda McDonald, the best part was… 357 more words

I Really, Really Wanted To Embrace The Barefoot Running Craze

I wish we didn’t have to wear shoes. It’s every day, leaving the house, going to work – wouldn’t it be cool if we could all lead barefooted lives? 1,131 more words
