Yesterday I used my feet to explore summer. First, by walking out to get the mail in bare feet and feeling the bottom of my feet get burned by the warm steps and pavement of our house. Then I walked on the wooden planks and soft sand on Alameda's beach just two blocks from the house. The sand in my sandals was a tickley reminder of summer. Finally, at sunset, I sat on the front steps of Rene's house as he watered the front garden and he splashed my feet with the cool water. Refreshing on at hot summer's day.
