Twin (my identical sibling, Alex) and I departed from Athens and our mother this past Monday evening. Now, I’m at home with my spouse, Aaron, in Arlington, Virginia and Twin has returned to his partner in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A full month in Greece with our surviving parent has been truly remarkable!
The purpose for our trip was to uplift Mom’s spirits – she’s suffered depression most of the summer – and to offer support to our brother’s and their families. We both feel the trip was worthwhile and Mom herself commented numerous times on how wonderful she felt. Perhaps a prolonged visit from her “duplicate” sons was the very “medicine” that she required!
Evidently, we succeeded in our endeavor. Mother had a abundance of laughs – primarily at our expense – and appeared to welcome each new day. The same was true for both Alex and myself. This was the first time that Twin and I had spent a prolonged period of time together in a number of years. It was a good experience for all of us!
The purpose of this footnote is to announce that as of today, I’m back to my routine of posting entries here on ReNude Pride on both Mondays and Fridays. Today’s post will be intentionally brief as I need to go out and indulge in a local skinny-dip while the weather remains cooperative!
The month of September is now upon us. The days of swimming clothes free outside are now declining at an alarming rate! Join with bare practitioners and live nude while there’s still time!
