Once in a while its nice just to sit back and enjoy just watching the gate of a woman in braces. The sound of their shoes landing hard on the pavement and the slight drag as they lift each leg again. The sound of the crutches as they carry her weight and the essence of the braces as they wrap tight against her legs. How your heart races as the wind picks up the edge of her skirt to display the steel that surrounds her flaccid thighs or the leather that cups her knee. Somehow its refreshing just to watch how she has overcome the paralysis of polio and struggled to regain her beautiful poise that makes her an incredible woman like no other. Instantly you’re reminded of how just watching her struggle to walk awoke deep inside you the desire to touch those beautiful polio legs and the cold bright steel that supports them.
