“The awful daring of a moment’s surrender which an age of prudence can never retract.”


*T. S. Eliot


“For women, shoes are the most important. Good shoes take you good places.”


(quote by Seo Min Hyun)

I’ve been making plans for later in life. So many things to do & places to see. I’ll need lots of shoes I think, but my favourite boots will be with me still.

If you were going to Oz would you have worn the Ruby Red Slippers, or…?


Dorothy wore one pair of red shoes for her entire journey over the rainbow to Oz… I can’t believe she only took one pair of shoes. When I travel I pack far too many shoes, and they’re all in only one colour: black.

There’s a rainbow of shoe colours & styles out there both for footwear and life-wear. What colour shoes do you wear? Does it say something about you?

I’m always surprised at my choice because as a kid my favourite shoes were bright orange sandals with big flower decorations.  I hated the black leather lace-up school shoes that were mandatory, and always looked for a way to flout the rules.

While you’re thinking, read another blog at I just posted on Women In Focus called “walk a mile in my shoes 

After you read my blog, and comment please, why not write a Women In Focus blog of your own. You could win a trip to New York or Mt Kilimanjaro…

“I’ve always taken ‘The Wizard of Oz’ very seriously, you know. I believe in the idea of the rainbow. And I’ve spent my entire life trying to get over it.”  Judy Garland
