Call for Participation: Sole Connection A Mile in Another’s Shoes: Ongoing

Help build an archive of personal journeys/stories symbolized by images of your shoes.

In this interconnected age of social media, we often forget to stop and meditate on the significance of the little things. While we may share with our close circle of friends and family, rarely do we offer those significant moments to our community at large. When we take the time to share in the subtleties of each other’s journey and experience, we become closer as a community, as a world.

Sole Connection offers that opportunity to share personal experiences stemming from something as simple as the shoes on your feet. Help build this archive to at least 5280 “feet” (entries) so that we can truly walk a mile in each other’s shoes.

Please submit work at http://soleconnection.tumblr.com/submit
