Here we are, the end of another month in 2019. For all those residing in the Southern Hemisphere, this month marked the official end of your Summer and the beginning of your Autumn. Here’s hoping that all of you completed your Summer tan-line free! For the rest of us living in the Northern Hemisphere, this month was the beginning of our Spring season. Our Winter, at last, is over!
My blogging buddy and same gender loving (gay) bare practitioner (naturist or nudist) friend, Timothy, author of the blog, Almost Wild, wrote a post late last month that relates to my reflection here today. Please click onto the title and read his exposition, Tats & Pubes & Nudists. His post fully enhances my reflection theme, topic and personal opinion.
March 25, annually, is Greek Independence Day. This celebration marks the date, in 1821, when the people who live in what is now Greece, rose up in revolt against Ottoman Turkey who occupied their homeland for hundreds of years. A protracted war ensued that culminated in the eventual establishment of the modern state of Greece. This post signifies both the religious feast day and the national holiday.
This year’s continuing live drama from Chicago, Illinois, USA, that concerns and involves the noted Black and same gender loving actor, Justin “Jussie” Smollett, and the Chicago Police Department, has undergone even more development and publicity since my last Friday Footnote posting two weeks ago. To reference the two previous Friday Footnote posts on Jussie Smollett, please click onto Hate and Shame and Friday Footnote: Jussie Smollett. The initial posting carries information regarding the attack on the actor. The second posting contains background material on Jussie Smollett and the current charges.
Yes! Finally! Spring is now officially here in the Northern Hemisphere! The meteorological Spring began back on March but now the astronomical season of Springtime started this past Wednesday evening (yesterday) and today being the first full day. No matter which beginning of the season we follow, it is now undoubtedly with us!
Obviously, the two gentlemen in the above photograph are bare or clothes-free. The difference is how they are posing while without covering. With the attached poem (below) and message in mind, one of our guys is naked. Our assumption being that it is not his first choice. On the other hand, our other man is nude. That’s because his being without clothing causes him no concern or discomfort whatsoever. The question is: “Which one is which?”
This week is Spring Break week at my university and I’m using the time away from my classes to visit my mother in Greece. She is having some depression and a difficult time coping with my father’s death this past November. I’m hoping the trip will offer support to both her and my brothers who live nearby. I’m only gone for the week and then I return back to work here.
