Reflections: End of Year, 2017

As difficult as it seems, at least for me, to believe, almost a full year has now passed by since I returned to blogging here. In many ways, it doesn’t feel like it has been that long, but the calendar doesn’t lie and next month marks the first anniversary of ReNude Pride. I guess this proves beyond a doubt the old adage: Time flies when you’re having fun.

It has indeed been a “fun” year for me. I enjoy writing, meeting people and exchanging ideas. Being able to do that with others while discussing one of my favorite topics, nudity, only makes it all the more of a pleasure for me. At this time, I add that if anyone reading or visiting here on ReNude Pride has a topic or subject that they would like to see addressed/discussed here, please type the issue in the “comments” function and I’ll be more than happy to try my best to introduce it.


This is the time of the year when most of us are thinking about the past year; the successes, the failures, the triumphs, the tragedies, the mistakes and the good fortunes. Personally, the past is just what it is and there is no amount of thought that is going to erase anything. So why waste the energy even giving it a brief consideration. It’s over.

I prefer to use this time and think ahead, forward, to see myself and Aaron (my spouse) and I a year from now and explore together where we’d like to be, not necessarily physically but in our relationship. We try to use this unofficial “period of reflection” wisely.

A note of a change on my Bare Blogging Crew page. tha naked i is one of the bloggers that I first encountered when I returned to blogging here. He’s now authoring a new blog that is featuring his artwork and the name of Jonny’s new site is JJ Frank (click the title to view). Not only is he a practicing naturist/nudist, but all of his art is the same – clothes – free. I urge all of the bare practitioners here to investigate his new site. I find his artwork to be exciting, interesting and honest.

Happy New Year, 2018!

Naked hugs!

A same gender loving (gay) bare practitioner (nudist) who invites you to explore my blog. At times I may appear irreverent but I am in no way irrelevant!
