The Northern Hemisphere’s Spring season officially began yesterday, March 19, at 11:50 p.m.! That makes today the official first full day of Spring, 2020! It will be a full 24 hours of the new season as of midnight tonight! For those living in the Southern Hemisphere, this is their first full day of Autumn, 2020! So no matter where anyone lives, a new season is now upon us all!
The very first Spring that Aaron, my spouse, and I were together, March, 2010, he took this picture of me. We were in a local park adjacent to the Potomac River that flows between Arlington, Virginia (where we live) and Washington, D.C., this nation’s capital city. In case anyone is wondering, a squirrel caught my attention just as Aaron flicked on the camera. The daffodil flowers had just begun blooming for that season.
Just imagine waking up and realizing that in the entire world, you are the solo – the one, the only, the completely total – bare practitioner left on this planet. There isn’t another naked or nude or clothes free person left anywhere around. Everyone else is proudly covering themselves in clothes! There is not another person who is bare and confident. You are it! What the hell do you do now? Do you scurry in shame into your closet, drag out a wardrobe of garments and conceal yourself?
It is almost unbelievable! Yet, when we sit back and think about it, the reality is very difficult to discredit. March may indeed be a month of madness but the bromantic (brotherhood of romance) moments during this time of the year are very few and very…unknown! Aaron, my spouse and I were trying to identify a passionate play-date for this month over the weekend and we were unable to recall a single occasion!
Many of us bare practitioners anxiously welcome the beginning of daylight savings time, no matter where we live. It afford us, at least, an extra hour of daylight, or more, for as long as it endures. This additional natural lighting permits us more time to roam throughout without having to wear clothing! Not that we require the daylight in order to enjoy our being naked, but daylight savings time (DST) does permit us a longer period of natural (outdoor) fun and freedom!
The title is very suggestive of the game of basketball because here in the USA, for many years the very term, March Madness, was used enthusiastically and emphatically by sports fans to denote the month as one of endless collegiate competitions leading to champions in the basketball world. As an obsessive basketball fan myself, I am one to overuse the designation every year regardless of whether or not the topic is basketball.
