On an audio recording, I once heard Julia Cameron, author of The Artist's Way, say something to the effect of, "The soles of my feet lead to the feats of my soul."
She was referring, of course, to the oft-cited relationship between walking and creativity. The one (walking) increases the other (creativity).
While I would love to claim credit for Cameron's brilliant use of a punning antimetabole, I'll settle for appreciating the connection between my soles and my soul.
Although I'm not walking in the photo above, my soles are ready to dance across the alphabet with tip-tapping toes like a typewriter, because that's the type of writer I am. A few words later, hopefully, and that's where I'll find my soul.
