Footprint in the sand

with 4 comments

I love how footprints in the sand have an optical illusion quality – obviously they are imprints in the sand from someone walking – but I always do a double take because I am sure they are sculpted atop the sand.

And of course footprints have so many magical, inspirational aspects – where we are going, where we have been, are we leading or following.

I don’t think I ever saw the child who made this print – and yet, I have something of theirs. And now so do you.

  1. What a simple, yet powerful, image. Truly lovely, and your commentary is too.

  2. I’ve never considered the illusionary aspect to footprints in the sand. Now you kinked my mind, Titi! Awfully sneaky way to make sure you are remembered! 🙂
