6th Anniversary Treat!

ReNude Pride’s 6th Anniversary Cake!

Help yourself to a slice of anniversary cake!

In celebrating ReNude Pride’s 6th anniversary following closely behind the beginning of a new nude year with endless possibilities, maybe it is time to consider a new perspective and explore a different situation! But first things first, namely, it is time to honour the title here, renude (renewed). Strip off the garment baggage and remember the ancient wisdom adage:

“The mind is a terrible thing to waste!”

A friendly stroll!

Footnote Friday: News!

Footnote Friday!

Introduction explanation:

The term “Friday Footnote” confuses some people. Please don’t be misled. I am not endorsing a “foot fetish” obsession – nor am I condemning one! A “footnote” is a brief notice or explanation for clarification. To enhance comprehension and understanding of the subject material. Our man above is ReNude Pride’s visual indication of a footnote.

The latest updates…!

In my posting earlier this month, September: New Beginnings, (click title to view) I presumed that everyone understood the correlation between January 1, and September 1. A “new beginning” isn’t really happening just because it is the start of another month and another calendar season. However, as early as we are into the current month, “new” has already enveloped us. The most obvious being the ascension of Charles III as the Head of Commonwealth on the death of his mother, the late Queen Elizabeth II.

Another event happened to me, personally, just this past week! A most welcome occurrence!

Friends reunited!

Role-model reunion:

Returning to my classroom after the Labor Day holiday (Monday, September 5), I was totally surprised and thrilled to receive a response from one of my oldest (acquaintance wise) blogging buddies with the accurate and current address of his blog! This lifted my spirits after the day off and made me excited about this long overdue reunion!

His new site is: Gaytekeeper’s Blog. Click on the title and visit the blog. He is very impressive and will keep you entertained, informed and current!

Addendum:

I appreciate everyone who corrected my connectivity link above. It was a typographical error on my part. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience!

Farewell, Summer, 2022!

Get-Away goodbye!

In the Northern Hemisphere, this approaching weekend is the final official one of the Summer of 2022. The season of fun, surf and sun will – within a few short days – disappear as autumn brings a chill into our lives.

Aaron and I are on the roadways away beginning today (early in the morning). This is our bidding farewell to the season and to the comfortable temperatures outside. We have no definitive destination for our weekend jaunt although an ocean and waves are always appealing!

This is our tribute to the summer of 2022 – our method of saying “thank you” and good-bye” as the season draws to a close. It was both fun and remarkable, a combination that unfortunately doesn’t happen to often recently.

I wish to everyone reading and/or visiting here the best for the weekend! Be careful and safe!

Naked hugs!

Author’s Note: The next post entry for here is planned for Monday, September 19, 2022, and the proposed topic is a brief tribute on the funeral and burial of the late Queen Elizabeth II.

A Workable Solution?

In response to my post this past Monday, Decisions, (click title to view), last night as Aaron and I were in a local restaurant celebrating our fourth wedding anniversary, the subject of the appropriate gravatar (logo or representation) for ReNude Pride became part of our conversation. Normally, my spouse is very tolerable of my ideals and opinions and supportive of any viewpoints that I may share here. However, in this instance, he clarified a point and asked that I share it here.

The Northern Hemisphere: Longest Day of Sunlight

Today is a remarkable day on this planet known as Earth. In the Northern Hemisphere (north of the Equator) it is not only the very first day of the season of Summer, 2019, it is also the longest day of sunlight in the annual calendar.  If that isn’t enough notoriety, today is also World Naked Hiking Day! Thus, in the Northern Hemisphere, it is possible to skinny-dip (swim naked) and to hike bare (clothes free) both on the same day!

Pride And The Week That Was!

Tomorrow is Saturday and it is the day that my spouse’s (Aaron’s) cousin, Michael leaves us to return home to Canada. He hopes to be on the highway around 8:00 in the morning. He’s in no big hurry to return to his parent’s home for the remainder of this summer – he just wants to try his best to get away from the Washington, D.C., traffic before everyone else is travelling. I honestly appreciate his desire!

Reflections: End of March, 2019

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.

Do What’s Right!

Doing what we know is the “right” (correct) action isn’t always easy. It’s often not as plain and clear as many of us would like to think. Especially in these challenging times in which we live what sometimes may seem to be the obvious choice is occasionally complicated by outside factors or influences such as situation, participants, etc. This is particularly true when the choices presented to us are accompanied by conflicting values, attitudes and beliefs. The dilemma can and often is never-ending.

Reflections: End of November, 2018

November, 2018, was most definitely not the month I expected it to be. As those of you who read ReNude Pride regularly already know, my father died on November 11. This event happened unexpectedly following his diagnosis of stage 4 cancer of the colon, liver and one kidney on October 28. Mercifully, it wasn’t a protracted end but was swift and relatively pain-free. Which does beg the question: “How the hell do the doctors or any of us really know how painless any death truly is?”
