"I trust what you are doing though…I just see it a little differently.
I don’t see it as you stepping away from the fire. I see it as the fire directing your course.
No matter how airy or earthy or watery you become... to many of us you will always be...a super nova."
"Behind these gates of seeming warmth sits, loosely chained, a fierce attack dog. Perhaps not crazy, but dangerous"
Not sure why I'm so anxious, but I am getting work done. Meh

Because of the ease with which they’re put on and removed—along, perhaps, with their generic ubiquity—flip-flops connote a sort of half-dressed slatternliness, a sense that the wearer has forgotten to do anything at all with his or her body from the ankles down. I was going to call them “foot underwear” (nomenclature that would be consistent with their older U.S. designation as “thongs,” a term still used in Australia) but that’s not quite right—after all, it’s not like you’re going to put a pair of real shoes on top. More precisely, flip-flops are foot 'robes', and seeing hundreds of strangers walk by in dirty, sidewalk-sweeping bathrobes barely held on with loosely tied belts (the analogy holds up all the way through) is no one’s idea of summer fun. Unless your daily commute is a stroll from your hammock across white sands to the piña colada stand you manage in Waikiki, please consider leaving the foot robes at home.
To this day I still remember telling my sister "Put some real shoes on!" when I visited her four years ago. I can't recall exactly what it was we were doing--it may have even been the day we went to Disneyworld--but she kept tripping and stubbing toes. She wore those stupid flip-flops everywhere. Everyone did in Florida. Never mind the fact they make you look sloven, when your footwear is impeding your locomotion you've got a problem and the solution is to wear 'real' shoes!
