    Over the last several months, I enjoyed interviewing (via email) Scott Marckx, a barefoot runner, hiker, backpacker, violin maker, old time fiddle player, and boat builder who stopped wearing shoes (most, but not all, of the time) in 2012. Now in his early 50s, Scott has lots of interesting insights into the barefoot life in Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington; I hope readers will be inspired by his story of barefoot work and play.

    I love the name "Noodles" (! a favorite food) . . . thanks for the feedback on the article. (It was a lot of words . . . I'm glad they were meaningful to you.) :)
