In my head

There was a pair of worn brown shoes in a plexiglass box on display at the Maira Kalman exhibit. She mentioned that the shoes were actually hers, and that she had purchased them knowing they were too large for her feet. "Because when I wore them, I had to walk very carefully (so they wouldn't fall off), it was my way of slowing down time." I thought about this throughout the day and found it disarmingly funny.
