stepping time isn't as great as it used to be. when the big toe draws a line all the other toes hover nearby. the other toes always hover nearby. the foot is the base, the ankle is where the liquidity of the leg happens. I'm not sure what life is like without feet. I've been swimming with my feet folded into my lap to better appreciate the length of the body. coming to grips with the ground only take the rhythm of stepping time.
