"Walking or standing barefoot upon the earth provides the conduit for my spiritual enrichment. To stand on the hills of my ancestors still fills my heart as it did when I was a child. There is something about it that inspires reverence. Gripping the earth, grass or field flowers with one's toes is extremely reinvigorating for the soul."
