Head to Toe

It is good to feel the sunlight on my skin after weeks of chilly, rain-spattered days. I turn my face to the sun and feel myself unfurl.

My toes curl in anticipation of kicking off my flip flops and feeling the dewy grass beneath and between them.

It is early morning and I am alone in the world, just for a few moments. I need this space, this pause, to gather my thoughts and my strength for all that lies ahead.

My head is in the clouds but my feet are firmly grounded.

Have you had a hair-cut, hon? It looks really good :)

HHNT, xx Dee

Such gorgeously curly hair! And I'm loving the flip-flops - too cute! I've noticed that you have quite long toes... I wish my toes were long, instead of being stubby lil' things! (Only so I could wear toe rings, you understand... I don't have toe envy for any other reason!!)

Happy HNT and here's to many more quiet moments!

Mariposa said...

Head to foot, top to toe, and leaving the rest to the imagination. Very clever! And very lovely. And what were you doing that curled the second toe on your left foot whilst you took the photo? :)

I live near the ocean and I love sitting on the beach, soaking in the sun, I only wish I didn't burn so easily. Nice flip flops, HHNT!

Super Cute Haircut!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Luka said...

Beau - thank you. It is unruly, like me :)

Walker - I have a very sensitive neck, so any passing vampires would need to be stealthy indeed! And yes, I will be sure not to kick any ridiculously heavy pots in bare feet!

Marcello - thank you kindly.

Freddy - I can sense a theme developing here...

Luka said...

Dee - I have had it chopped again, yes. Glad you like it :)

Helga - I have long prehensile digits much like an orangutan. It can be very useful.

Mariposa - thank you!

Fairyflutters - I do my best with my camera phone and a moment of sunshine!

Jackie -thanks! My toes curl whenever I think of my favourite sex bloggers.

Jason - Cheers!

Luka said...

Ms Lily - ah, how I love the ocean. Thank you, they were very cheap flip flops I bought from a seaside shop.

Baby - sunshine on the skin is so mood-lifting, isn't it?

Paul B - thank you very much!

Biscuit - me too, can't resist them.

Sage - thanks! I'm glad you like them.

Anna Louise - thank you. If I am nearly at the point of buying shoes I normally do.

Vixen - thanks. I used to dislike my curls but am grateful for them now.

Luka said...

Bsholic - there's nothing like it, is there?

Anonymous Boxer - I am a Style Icon.

Luka, unruly tho you may be I prefer you and your hair, and I usually don't like shorter hair, that way rather than ruly :-) much more intoxicating indeed. :-)

Beau

Luka said...

Beau - then you are in luck! x

Lapis Ruber said...

At one with nature - there is no better feeling and you have captured that beautifully in this post. Happy HNT.

Ro said...

We all need the occasional moment like that, I guess.

I don't think I could carry off the flip-flops as well as you do though!

And, hmmm, your hair used to be longer, didn't it?

Happy HNT!

Luka said...

Lapis Ruber - yes, I am a total nature girl at heart.

Ro - it did, but I am steadily chopping it shorter.

d2b said...

Your feet looks much nicer than mine ;)

Luka said...

d2b - feet are such a subjective thing - I am never entirely happy with mine.

Beau - I would simply love to! x
