“You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.”

~ Henry David Thoreau (at Roosevelt Island Tramway)

Some of you may have been seeing many @Instagram users posting similar shots for an organization called Beautiful Feet.

Some of you may simply scroll through them, and perhaps even like them. But I implore you to PLEASE READ this caption.

Beautiful Feet is an organization that has given out over 90,000 pairs of shoes in 14 different countries. Now, 90,000 sounds like a lot of shoes, doesn’t it? But it barely scratches the surface. 

Imagine walking along every day without shoes. If you have children of your own or have children as part of your life in any way, imagine if they did not have shoes to wear. Would that be acceptable to you?

All I am asking of you is to share Beautiful Feet’s mission. I’m not asking you to donate anything but a few minutes of your time and a a simple post in your feed. If you want to do more, please visit their account which I’ve put on top and tagged on the photo for more information and how you can do more.

Thank you for taking the time to read this enormously long caption. 🙏

“I have come to accept the feeling of not knowing where I am going. And I have trained myself to love it. Because it is only when we are suspended in mid-air with no landing in sight, that we force our wings to unravel and alas begin our flight. And as we fly, we still may not know where we are going to. But the miracle is in the unfolding of the wings. You may not know where you’re going, but you know that so long as you spread your wings, the winds will carry you.”

“who knows if the moon’s
a balloon, coming out of a keen city in the sky—filled with pretty people?

(and if you and I should
get into it,if they should take me and take you into their balloon, why then we’d go up higher with all the pretty people than houses and steeples and clouds: go sailing away and away sailing into a keen city which nobody’s ever visited, where always it’s Spring)

and everyone’s in love and flowers pick themselves”
