Talking Boots (November 15, 2010)

There’s a point where hiking boots become old friends instead of clingy, abrasive strangers.  Your feet no longer look too wide and bulbous in them (but your sneakers now do) and the leather has creases in it from being laced up so often.  Pulling them out yields a shot of excitement.  Dirt and layers of scraped of mud cakes the front and sides to the point that you can’t remember the original color of the boots.  Were they green?  Light gray?  We met each other half way, my boots and I: my feet have callused and the boots have softened.
