For those who read ReNude Pride either periodically or regularly already know this, but I am a confirmed bare practitioner (naturist or nudist), as is my husband, Aaron. It is no big secret that both Aaron and myself are always clothes-free when we’re at home and aren’t too quick to put on any covering should any friends come by to visit. Almost all of our friends and some of our family know our disdain for covering and if they want to see us at home, understand that they will, figuratively and literally, see us nude.
Author’s Note: This blog-site celebrates all the many non-sexual aspects of naturist/nudist living. The title here may be somewhat misleading but I assure everyone reading here this posting is in no way sexual. Please forgive me the confusion and please enjoy the message contained.
“Sex On The Beach” may mean a number of different things to an equally number of different people. For me, it recalls summer days relaxing on the beach, completely bare and soaking up the sunny rays while sipping a tropical cocktail. A before dinner mix of sand, surf and sunshine and a drink.
Today is the first full day of the Memorial Day holiday here in the USA. It is the traditionally considered as the unofficial beginning of the 2018 Summer season. The long-awaited and much anticipated time of sand, sun and surf! The return of those carefree days of expanded sunlight and endless fun. If you’re planning to be outside today, please remember to cover yourself with sunscreen. No one wants to miss a solitary moment of unlimited activities because of a painful sunburn, or worse. Please see previous post as well as the provided link.
Today is Arbor Day in the USA. Another commemoration that often brings to mind images of a person hugging tree, similar to Earth Day. It is appropriate that the two dates follow so close together during the Spring season. Arbor Day is essentially a school-based celebration for youth to focus on the importance of trees as both a resource for oxygen and as a natural resource that constantly needs replenishing. Many schools sponsor a tree-planting ceremony on this date.
By now, almost all of us are familiar with the image of a person hugging a tree representing environmentalists. It is used by many as either a positive identifier or else as a derogatory graphic. As we become better acquainted with the knowledge and effects of global warming, this image also serves as a reminder of the fragile relationship between our environment and humanity. This same picture accurately depicts the primary message of the entire Earth Day movement: This is our world, we all need to work together to protect it.
This has been a particularly trying week for me. Monday morning was not only cold and depressing as only a Monday can be – then add to that it snowed! I think that someone forgot to read the memo that read that Spring is now here! I wish the meteorologists would get their act together and create some seasonal weather for us. This “frequent snowstorm” alert just isn’t cutting it, not in my book!
Warning: Under no circumstance toss away your Winter outdoor gear or warm, snuggly blanket anytime soon! It may be officially and methodologically Spring now, but that fact doesn’t guarantee warmer temperatures anytime soon! Case in point, the second day of Spring had the northeastern region of the USA facing major snowfall, including the mid-Atlantic area where yours truly lives. I had to clean my car off twice: when I left in the early morning to take the subway into work and then again when I left the subway to return home.
