Author’s Note: There are two personal celebrations that I have every year during this month. Due to time constraints caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19), I am combining both together to share with you in this brief posting. The significance of these special occasions in my life are fairly self-explanatory.
Annually, on January 1, we observe the beginning of a new calendar year. This special event occurs globally and is often honored through a public holiday that allows the majority of us the freedom and the opportunity to participate in festivities either in reality or virtually. “No stone left unturned” is the adage that many countries and cultures followed in devising new and exciting means to mark the arrival of 2021!
Personally, Aaron (my spouse) and I spent New Year’s Eve at home in the company of Aaron’s brother and his current boyfriend and my identical twin brother, Alex, and his live-in partner. Both of our brothers and their attachments are bare practitioners therefore our observance was indeed very nude, very bromantic (brother + romantic = bromantic) and very much fun!
January 3, 2021, was the 12th anniversary of my friendship with my BBF (best, best friend) Jay. We met for the first time on Saturday, January 3, 2009, at a “naked cocktails” gathering in a gay bar in Washington, DC. We became confidantes and co-conspirators practically from the moment we first introduced ourselves. Aaron and Jay have developed a close friendship between themselves likewise.
The fact is that Jay and I jointly created the distinction “BBF” for ourselves back in the heyday of the “BFF” (best friends forever) term. Even though we are more than likely bare (naked) together, we have never once been sexually involved. The above photograph is our mutual avatar to denote, represent and signify our friendship, although I did post it here last week (with Jay’s approval).
January, 2021, also marks my 4th anniversary of publishing ReNude Pride here. My previous blog, A Guy Without Boxers, was cancelled and deleted by wordpress without explanation, notification or warning. It tool me almost two years to decide to return to blogging. As my commitment to this endeavor has lasted four years, this timeline must indicate that the rewards surely outnumber the challenges encountered!
Last, but absolutely not least, on the 4th anniversary of this site, ReNude Pride, I want to publicly express my heartfelt and sincere appreciation to my beloved husband, Aaron. His dedication and support – and most importantly, love have made this blogging experience and this site’s existence possible! My devoted gratitude to you, Aaron!
Author’s Note: The next posting here is planned for Friday, January 29, 2021, and the proposed topic is Knowing Our Nipples!
