Topic of the Day...
...toe reading. Who knew?
Britney Spears is the best example of how your toes change as your life and emotions change. In the April 2, 2007 edition of STAR Magazine Britney was quoted as saying, "My toes are really ugly."
We can see from the picture taken in about 2003, before all the ugliness started, that she toes were as fair and innocent as she was.
The picture to the right was taken while Britney Spears was vacationing in Las Vegas. As a Toe Reader, I noted back then how sensitive and self-conscious Britney's toes were. In this pictures you can see that the toes were relaxed and bowing in a cautious and reserved way. As a teacher of Toe Reading, I used this picture as a teaching example of how people can be "out there on center stage, and yet deep down, they are shy and very concerned about what people will say.”
Today these same feet have become red, swollen and 'gnarly' as the magazine headline refers to them. The same could be said of her emotional life. In Toe Reading, we refer to anything that is RED as acute to mean that there is a red hot emotion buried alive in the toe. Each toe represents an element or aspect of a person's life. When you look at the close-up insert of Britney's toes, you will see that almost every toe is red and acute, indicating that almost every aspect of her life is out of balance. Especially note the fourth and fifth toes in this picture - they are not only red, they are forming lumps which can be viewed as penned up emotions. The redder the toe, the more the toe is storing stories of frustration, anger or rage. The fourth toe on the RIGHT side is indicative of relationships with others in the world. The bump in Britney's RIGHT RELATIONSHIP toe, her fourth toe, accurately depicts the lumps she is having in her relationships currently. The redness speaks for itself - she is storing lots of red emotions.
The LEFT side holds the story of how we are with our internal self. Note that on Britney's LEFT side her first big toe, known as her DESTINY toe, is very big and swollen - it actually looks painful to walk on. The question a Toe Reader would ask her is: Britney, what part of your DESTINY is internally painful for you to look at right now? Are you having pain or discomfort internally as you walk in the world? One can only have incredible empathy for this confused young woman who is filled from head to toe with red-hot emotions.
The Blog Princess remembers fondly the day of yore, when me toes were as fair and innocent as...

I can't imagine any woman's gnarly red toes would have anything to do with the misogynistic creation called heels, aka excruciating pain in a box...
