This weekend is the Memorial Day weekend here in the USA. Monday is a national holiday which makes this the first 3-day weekend of the 2018 Summer season. Summer doesn’t officially begin until June 21 but most meteorologists recognize this long weekend as the the unofficial beginning of the season of sand, sun and surf. The sunlight is at its zenith and so are the opportunities for sunburn – the skin discomfort as evidenced on the back of the gentleman in the above picture.
When invited to be guests in the home of friends, it is important to respect their wishes and in turn, expect them to respect us. This is a matter of common courtesy and treating others as we, ourselves, would like to be treated. In the above photo, the “welcome” mat in front of the door sends a clear and irrefutable message. We are about to enter into the home of a bare practitioner (naturist/nudist). The sandals are politely placed beside the greeting. The message is plain and simple.
Tomorrow, Saturday, May 5, 2018, is World Naked Gardening Day (WNGD). Observed on the first Saturday in May, annually, this is the day in which everyone is encouraged to do their gardening tasks while completely clothes-free. World Naked Gardening Day was first celebrated in 2005 and this year marks it’s 14th year. The occasion was always on an agreed date and in 2007, it was decided to keep the date on the first Saturday of May. No matter what our gardening needs are, this is as good a time as any to get things in order.
There are always signs that remind us of policies and rules wherever we go. It seems that it has become a routine to remind all of us as to what is or what isn’t allowed. It should come as no major surprise to anyone reading or visiting here that Aaron, my spouse, and I have one posted on the front door of our condominium that reads identical to the one above. Aaron found it at a conference that he attended shortly after we got married in 2015.

Finally all my discomfort, profanity and overall foul attitude has achieved some sort of result. This past weekend, the weather and the temperatures here on the East Coast of the USA has changed. We went from almost Winter-like conditions to almost Summer weather all within the span of maybe twenty-four hours. I’m just egocentric enough to take full credit for this change in our meteorological circumstance!
Yesterday was the Easter Feast in the Greek Orthodox Church. My spouse, Aaron, and I hosted several other same gender loving Greek bare partitioning couples over to our condo for a traditional Easter meal. Today’s post is one of fantasy and light-heartedness as I was exhausted after all the preparation and clean-up. I could have prepared better and scheduled my post in advance but I’m afraid I was too busy and lazy to do so. Continue reading Magical Nudity
Today is Easter Sunday in the Churches of the Eastern Orthodox tradition. To everyone who observes this holy feastday, I send best wishes for a Happy Easter! “Christos anesti!” (The Christ is Risen)!
Aaron, my husband, and I are celebrating by hosting a traditional Greek luncheon in our tiny little condo with two couples who are also Greek same gender loving bare practitioners (naturist/nudist). We don’t require our guests to decorate their buttocks as the guys above, but we don’t discourage it either! We haven’t yet decided on whether we’ll decorate our own buttocks but we do have the body paint available in one of our closets!
