Barefoot in January

The attire here is casual. Except for parties and other celebrations, people dress pretty informally on the commune. Ezra is (in)famous for wearing pajamas much of the year. At a recent Not Forum Roberto was inspired to strip down to his thermals, because so many participants were in sweats, pjs or long underwear.  Bra’s are somewhat rare.  I often go without socks.

The thing i dont get is barefeet in winter. Rowan chooses to avoid shoes for most of the year. Today, when it is probably below freezing, Rowan was out hunting me down for a magic game on a bike in bare feet. I have long stopped teasing him about this, because there is no mileage to be had for it.

Okay, off for that magic game.

    I wrote in my Smith College application about the skinny dipping recruitment meeting in the pond.

    Rowan only wears shoes when he’s going to town. He must be part hobbit, is all I can say. From his father’s side.

    My favorite was always going to meetings in Kaweah in the middle of winter- it’s usually FAR warmer than any other spot on the farm. You walk into the room for a meeting and immediately peel off 3 or 4 layers of clothing and do the meeting in thermals!

    I’m thinking of Apple/Mica’s costume one day, mimicking Willow’s 3yr old fashion statement of the fairy skirt with nothing else underneath…
