Lovely shoes, no? I decided – very very regretfully – to leave them behind in Lisbon yesterday. The little girl and I travelled to Portugal for a mother-daughter-bonding thing. And bond we did! My all-time favorite walking shoes gave up on me while climbing the Castle of the Moor’s ramparts in Sintra. Lovely spot, a half hour train ride from Lisbon, very much worth a visit. Not so great a spot for having the soles of one’s shoes disconnect from the upper leather. Decisively and tragically! Shoes were with me for over twenty years and supported me during many an art project. As a rite of passage, I photographed my little heroes before putting them with the garbage.
