Also, does anybody else get distracted by their feet when they are walking? I find that half my attention is on the sensory input coming in , leading me to miss important things like power poles, other people when I’m walking.

I love, love, love walking on different textures. Whenever I can, I walk across the lawn (not on the sidewalks) so I can feel the mush of the ground (wet), or the firmness (dry), or the crunch (icy), etc. Thankfully most our power lines are buried. When I travel I am exhausted looking out for poles and live wires, etc. (in addition to sensing all the new textures under my feet -b/c I can't turn that off, ya know).
