Our Feet: Thoughts on What Makes Us Stand

Feet. They are a part of us that inspires more disgust than awe. We collectively wrinkle our noses a their mention. More than arguably being the most disliked human anatomical feature in our society, they almost seem to be shrouded in taboo. Apart from the occasional olfactory joke and the odd anti-fungal ointment add on…

On Enjoying the Little Things
