As she closed this glitz and glamour chapter of her tour, the red shoes briefly considered if she should stay and seek out her fame and fortune or if she should continue her international travels. Heady from contemplating the lives of these famous stars, she pondered the proverb, "One who walks in another's tracks leaves no footprints." She was clear. She was an independent pair of shoes. She was brought into this world to make her own path and leave her own unique footprint. She was, after all, traveling shoes!
She made one last stop along the Hollywood Walk of Fame—a fifteen-block tribute to the entertainment industry. The ruby slippers stopped on the star of Judy Garland who sang, danced, and acted in many films, including the Wizard of Oz. She found her heels clicking together as she heard herself uttering, “There’s no place like home…there’s no place like home…” She knew that deeply in her heart and soles.
But for now, she had places to go, people to see, and her life to live. After all, they call her the International Traveling Shoes!
