Jude [The Letter J director and co-founder] was busy in 2013 making a version of Red Shoes as requested by Tramway with a beautiful bevvy of forest and city friends. 

We created a version of RED SHOES which performed at Tramway in December 2013.

Wanderer, your footsteps are the road, and nothing more; wanderer, there is no road, the road is made by walking. By walking one makes the road, and upon glancing behind one sees the path that never will be trod again. Wanderer, there is no road— Only wakes upon the sea.

Caminante, son tus huellas el camino, y nada más; caminante, no hay camino, se hace camino al andar. Al andar se hace camino, y al volver la vista atrás se ve la senda que nunca se ha de volver a pisar. Caminante, no hay camino, sino estelas en la mar.
— Antonio Machado, Campos de Castilla

"My Red Shoe journey continues - dancing to my own hearts beat and standing on my own two feet., walking my own handmade path."

What does it take to carve a handmade life? How can I learn to more fully dance to my own heart’s beat? What space can I make to truly listen courageously to the little, instinctive voice within that cries for another way? What discipline does it take to cultivate my intuition to tend to my instinct and walk my hearts way in my journey through life?

Go to the woods and listen. Stand tall, keep walking, dance! Love - big and tender, tall and true - all that is.
— Jude, The Letter J
