May is swiftly coming to a close, the last full month of Spring, 2017. If you haven’t already finalized your nakation (naked + vacation = nakation) plans for this upcoming Summer, now is the time to get this done. Procrastination only brings disappointment and frustration – not to mention being left out of a good time! My husband and I like to begin planning our nakations in early January of each year! And let’s be completely blunt and honest, there are only so many months in Summer, so why take a chance on missing all the fun?
During this month, my bare blogging brother, Kenn Campbell-Harris, launched a new site, Nudist Planet – a one-stop location for all things clothes-free, including a naked-encouraging clothing line. You might recall that Kenn was featured in an interview published here at the end of March. If you missed the interview, click the post entry here: Interview: Kenn of Gay Black Nudist Blog. Nudist Planet now incorporates Kenn’s Gay Black Nudist blog. I encourage everyone reading here to take a little time and visit Kenn at Nudist Planet. So as not to confuse anyone, the images featured in this post are not Kenn.
While we’re on the subject of photographs, I have received a number of emails from readers and visitors of ReNude Pride asking why I had never shared a picture of my husband, Aaron. To be honest, I have no idea why I haven’t done so. I’m proud to let you all know that I’ve published a photograph of Aaron this month on my Bare With Me page. Click the page title to view.
This month, I’ve initiated my second interview for ReNude Pride. My plans are to publish my next interview post with Dean “Dandy Deen” Nolan, the author of the photo-blog, Black Nude Taurus during the month of June, 2017, as part of ReNude Pride’s GLBT Nude Pride month celebration. I’ve become acquainted with Dean this Spring and he is fast becoming a true bare practitioner friend of mine. Please continue to visit here to read and see his interview!
I’m concluding this month’s “State-of-the-Blog” update with a personal note. During May, I re-certified with the Virginia Department of Health in HIV Counseling and Testing as well as Rapid HIV Testing. I do rapid HIV tests with an AIDS service organization that I serve as a volunteer. The re-certification program is a two-week curriculum (not consecutive) offered through the Eastern Virginia Medical School based in Norfolk. The process was very intensive but rewarding, as is my volunteer position. I’m just trying to do what I can so that when I die, I’ll leave this world (hopefully) better off than when I was born.
