Worn In

I'm quite in love with these vivid little heels from Seychelles...and like so many things I love I got them muddy almost immediately. It wasn't raining when I wore them out but the ground was still damp from earlier showers so the heels inevitably got dirty. They'll clean off fine (this time), but it's just another reminder that we usually destroy the things we love. It's part of the process of enjoying (physical objects) things--taking them out and using them--a well-worn pair of shoes, overly doodled in book, or even chipped mugs show those objects have been appreciated through use. My favorite pens are the first to run out of ink and I know I'm getting proper use of my notebooks when I fill the pages in nearly no time at all. This inevitably means you must buy new notebooks, be wary of chips in your mugs when sipping them and so on, but when I anthropomorphize those objects (like I did my stuffed animals when I was little) I imagine they feel more loved than the ones kept in mint condition on my shelves...
