Imagine what a good fall it will be if the celebrity with these heels were to rush her walk.

This is easier said than done though. Sometimes the response to circumstances might involve a 1001 steps at the same time. Agreed! But most important is the peace and calm in the midst of these situations, be they life threatening or of no practical importance

  • I want to ….

2017 is my stage. Welcome to my show.
