Over the years, I have seen many rain boots.
They never seemed to be the right choice for running and climbing and peddling.
I have rain boots.
My boots are for working in the muddy garden or walking across the wet grass or out to the mailbox on a rainy day.
My boots are not for everyday wear or serious walking.
But now that I have my boots, I am learning something new.
These boots go on and off easily and quickly.
These boots are for great for jumping in instead of jumping over that big puddle that always fills up quickly on rainy days.
These boots create a nice base when you crouch down to inspect the ground or watch the birds or the bunnies or the horses.
I think back to all those boots and understand that the clumsiness was worth the independence, the spontaneity.
Yesterday, I wore my boots outside just to jump in a puddle.
Hello to seeing things from a new perspective.
