Shoes. Just shoes. I always had maybe two pair of shoes a year, and they were for indoor and outdoor. I can't remember any slippers. To this day, I don't have slippers, but I do have flip flops for outside.
I love being bare foot, walking in the house that way and walking on the grass to the post office. I don't like shoes. But, I've come to appreciate them. The outdoor platform shoes that I had in Japan were very comfortable. Barefoot inside, and special slippers for the toilet. So, shoes for different rooms which had different functions. You can almost always tell an oriental house because outside shoes pile up and stay outside.
This shoe behavior establishes a routine that allows for maintaining a clean house.
To this day, I remove my outside shoes leaving them at the door and then walk barefoot. I maintain a lot of space. Also an inherited habit. I'll get more into that, space, in another blog.
Writing and art are my passions!
