Our Feet ARE WELL TRAVELLED. THE CARRY OUR JOURNEYS. THEY HOLD OUR STORIES.
THEY HELP US HIDE our secrets, our scars and the weight of burdens we've carried all this way.
Our feet carry our curiosity and desires for connection and play.
They carry all of our joys and sorrow.
They’ve been with us since we were a child, and they will take us into tomorrow.
Most of us naturally tend to hide our pain and suffering from others. We feel uncomfortable and are afraid we'll be judged. More often than not though, what we feel ashamed about and see as our ugly "scars" are something others who also have the same scars are able to draw strength from and relate to. We desire to be a place of "connecting points" where stories are shared and anyone living with trauma is able to find hope and inspiration, and to realize that they are not alone in their pain and that their feet can learn to run, dance and play again.
SHOW US YOUR FEET
Grab a camera and snap a picture of your feet.
You can take a picture of them as they are or do them up as you like.
Record the story of your feet and where they travelled on your android/iphone.
It can be audio or it can be video.
It can be a confession. It can be a quote. It can be celebration. It can be used as a source of strength and hope.
send your picture and your audio/video clip here and we'll share your stories throughout the year. If you want to remain anonymous just let us know.
Be gentle with yourself. Your story may not have a resolution yet. We are all still on our journey's way.
Starting in late 2019, we will begin sharing your feet and your story.
Not all stories we share will be from individuals who grew up in foster care homes and orphanages but each story is from someone who has been impacted by trauma as a child and has valuable and encouraging insight to share.
