The Power of the Slippers

Sore feet. Slopped around in slippers.

Moved slowly, not briskly. Slopped.

Reverted to joggers: crisp, firm footsteps. Felt better, moved, bester, grew stronger.

On a luxury visit to Kangaroo Island an 'incident' almost stealthily disturbed my life.

PERSISTENTLY I trod on my friend's foot, lost balance and leant against her, failed to connect my wine glass to my lips.

During the following weeks I seemed to lose my sense of balance, fall over, lose my sense of direction.
