DPF / Goodfellow

For running barefoot to know the time, from the kind friend who wrote the lovely, Mendeleev’s Mandala.

from A Sundial Explains the Uncertainty Principle / by Jessica Goodfellow

In the Dark Ages, serfs scratched sundials
into the bottoms of wooden clogs.
To discern the hour, they went barefoot,
dusty shoes upended to catch the sun.
