A strange sign

sign

Above is a sign which as I understand, is hanging on a door to a place where they play table pool.

The first four things they say NO to, I can understand – Fighting, spitting, drinking and gambling.

The last one I do not understand, what is the reason behind NO BARE FEET? No one will play the game with his feet,

or climb barefoot on the pool tables And there is mostly no food served in these places, so what is the reason for this last NO?

If you have any idea for this – please leave me a comment, I would share it with everyone.

For some of us

For some of us, the soul is resident in the sole, and yearns ceaselessly for light and
air and self-expression. Our feet are our very selves. The touch of floor or carpet, grass
or mud or asphalt, speaks to us loud and clear from the foot, that scorned and lowly
organ as dear to us as our eyes and ears

My barefoot fun

Had some barefoot fun this morning, May 9, 2015. Went to the park to sit in the sun a bit,

had only shorts on me. While sitting there I saw a trail for walking, where the first 50 feet was medium size gravel. Being that I never tried walking barefoot on gravel, I decided it is time to see if I can handle it. I started very carefully putting one foot on, and lifting the other to see if I can take it, and yes, I had no problems, as long as I watched where I am going, and what I put my foot on, it was easy, and fun. May go there again tomorrow to do it again. Did the whole 50 foot and back on gravel in my bare feet.

Some kids were watching me, and asking “hey Mister, does it hurt?”, and I told them that my feet are used to go barefoot, and they should do it first on grass, and leaves, before trying gravel.

It felt real good to know that after 2 years of being barefoot, my feet can now do this, without it hurting. Would do this a few times more, and accomplish one more thing in the barefoot way of life.

Have you started going barefoot?

What do others think

What will others think if they see you walking barefoot on the streets?

The truth is that, regardless of whatever others may think, going barefoot is a personal choice – the same way wearing a pair of gloves or a hat are also personal choices. Going barefoot is something one does for his or her own comfort and health.

Statistically speaking, about 80% of people won’t even notice. Some others might be curious and perhaps might even try doing it too, once they see it is fine for someone else to do it. A percentage of misinformed people will think there is something wrong with it; however, they will keep it to themselves. Very few will make comments or ask questions.

Come to think about it, the average time length you are in “contact” with the any by-passer on the street is no more than 10 or 15 seconds. Do you ultimately care about what someone who sees you for only 15 seconds of your entire life might think?
You can go barefoot too!

Yes, anyone can. Amazingly enough, even after years of confinement, human feet can rapidly adapt to a newly recovered “freedom”. At first, it might feel a bit awkward or strange to walk barefoot on surfaces you’ve never tried before.

The key is to start slowly and not overdo it. A 10 or 15 minute walk around the block every day is the best way to get started. Soon, you will gain the confidence to expand your bare footing experience. You will also re-acquire a “taste” for it. The more time you spend barefooted, the less you will care for having your feet confined in shoes. Footwear will slowly become an accessory or protective gear (like gloves or a helmet, that you only wear in special circumstances), rather than a necessity.

what is your origin

Do you know what is your origin? where did your ancestors come from?

Science say the length of our toes in relations to the other toes, will tell us our origin, but there is no proof to this.

Below there is a picture of the five possibilities, and where do they originate from. under that there is a picture of my toes for you to match to one of the diagrams. When you match my toes, you can pull your shoes & socks off, stand with your foot flat on the ground, and match yours to one of the diagrams.

You can comment on your thoughts, as to where am I from.
