November, at least in the Northern Hemisphere, is the last full month of the autumn season. Generally, throughout most of the hemisphere, it isn’t a usual time where the outdoor temperature is exactly conducive to being bare outside. However, with the variances that accompany local weather, sometimes during November there are days when the daytime temperatures are remarkably moderate and we’re able to enjoy ourselves in nature while completely clothes-free!
The days during the month when it is comfortably possible to be a bare practitioner outdoors aren’t always the days of unlimited sunshine. Overcast days are just as likely to bring moderate temperatures proving that the sunnier days are not necessarily the warmest. I vividly recall the election day in 2012. The day was very cloudy and breezy but the temperatures were a rival to those of summer. After I cast my vote to re-elect President Obama for another term, I drove to a local river and spent the afternoon skinny-dipping with friends! The best news came later that night: President Obama was re-elected for a second term in office!
The autumn foliage still changes during the season, but that doesn’t prevent us bare practitioners from completely abandoning our natural enjoyment. During the daylight hours, there’s still the possibility for a few hours, if not more, of outdoor clothes freedom! Most of us have learned, from experience, to treasure these brief moments whenever they occur!
The next several months will offer us more than we care to tolerate of colder and barren weather. We know to take these “special” gifts of moderate temperatures and enjoy them all!
