I’m a nelipot. I grew up blessedly on a beach, and the beach gurl never grew out of walking barefoot. When I moved to Oregon I lived in a southern forest, and when it snowed, I would bound out of the house barefoot and remember only when cold powder hit the bottoms of my feet that I needed shoes! I hate socks in shoes, though I don’t mind slipping into them if it is very cold. When Uggs came around, I was in heaven, because I could be barefoot in snuggly warm boots. When I come to work, I kick off my shoes no matter the time of year and am barefoot in the studio, which occasionally leads to accidents, as my husband the tack-spitting upholstery conservator occasionally can’t find all the tacks that landed on the floor. My favorite place to be barefoot is in the sand, leaving footprints for the gulls to explore.
