As much fun as skinny-dipping (swimming naked) can be, there are a few considerations to keep in mind whenever we bare ourselves for an outdoor swim. Both the sunshine and the water hold the promise of a fruitful and happy experience, as humans, we also know that disaster often happens without reason and warning. Being aware of certain situations beforehand often enhances our chances of a successful skinny-dipping outing!
This is the time of the year for me that allows me to focus on what changes and/or improvements that I would like to undertake in my life. I make a few New Year’s resolutions every year, but for the most part, any serious resolution – at least, for me – happens during this time period. There are far fewer distractions now than at the beginning of a new year!
Tomorrow, Saturday, May 4, 2019, is the celebration of World Naked Garden Day throughout the Northern Hemisphere. As warming Spring temperatures now envelope practically all of the hemisphere, the gardening season beckons many of the residents to shed their garments and to get busy restoring nature! The time period for outdoor growth hasn’t changed so its best to get bare, get outside and enjoy while the weather is cooperative!
The above image is the picture of a loaf of Easter Bread, one of the traditional foods of the Easter celebration within the Greek Orthodox Church. This weekend marks the end of the Great Lenten Fast that is observed prior to the Feast Day. All of the faiths of the Orthodox churches have Easter this weekend; the Russian, the Greek, the Ethiopian, the Bulgarian, the Serbian, the Albanian, the Egyptian Coptic and as well as some of the Eastern Rites of the Church of Rome.
This year, April has been especially mild and the nice weather is allowing many to get an early beginning to being bare and bold outside in the sun! My spouse, Aaron, and I are among the many who are taking advantage of this wonderful opportunity and getting ourselves a significant amount of the unseasonable weather and the sun’s warming rays! We are both lathering ourselves in sunscreen!
This is not a very lengthy posting today. This past weekend both my spouse, Aaron, and I celebrated our birthdays. Aaron’s day is April 5 and my own is April 6. This year Aaron had to work on his birthday and fortunately for me, mine was on Saturday and I had no classes to teach. The result was a complete two days, both Saturday and Sunday, with just the two of us together at home!
My blogging buddy and same gender loving (gay) bare practitioner (naturist or nudist) friend, Timothy, author of the blog, Almost Wild, wrote a post late last month that relates to my reflection here today. Please click onto the title and read his exposition, Tats & Pubes & Nudists. His post fully enhances my reflection theme, topic and personal opinion.
