My summer daytime returns to a normal routine of solitude this weekend as my friend, Jay, flies back to his home tomorrow. It was terrific having him here this week and the time passed much too quickly for us both. We did manage to read three of the four of John Grisham’s books on our list – “A Time To Kill,” “The The Pelican Brief,” and “The Client.” We didn’t have the time to read “The Firm” so last night we went to a local bookstore and we each bought a copy to read this weekend – me, bare, riverside and Jay while flying home.
One of my favorite personal past-times of the summertime is always the freedom to read whatever I want in my most comfortable position: bare! It is an activity that can be enjoyed whether alone or in a group of others. It is something that requires very little aside from a book or magazine and a pair of glasses. Of course, sunscreen and a thermos of beverage is necessary and that’s all.
This upcoming Sunday is Bare Practitioner’s Day! Before I progress any further on this topic, I should explain or remind everyone that “bare practitioner” is the term that I prefer to use for self-identification as well as to describe who and what we are. I believe the majority utilize the term: “gay naturist/nudist.” In most social settings, sexual actions are not permitted. That’s the reason I’d much rather be a bare practitioner as opposed to gay naturist/nudist. “Gay” has simply too much sexual baggage or implications!
The 2019 observation of Nude Recreation Week begins today and continues through July 14. This is an annual event that has been sponsored by the Naturist Society for the past 41 years. It is jointly sponsored by both the Naturist Society and the American Association for Nude Recreation. Author’s Note: The Naturist Society website announces that Nude Recreation Week is July 8 – 14, 2019. The American Association website offers the same event for July 7 – 14, 2019.
On this date in 1776, the Declaration of Independence was signed. That document ended the relationship between the thirteen colonies and the United Kingdom and established the United States as an independent country.
Author’s Note: There will be no additional posting here tomorrow, Friday, July 5. Regular posting will resume here on Monday, July 8, the beginning of Nude Recreation Week!

It was exactly 50 years ago today, on June 28, 1969, that the Stonewall Inn riots occurred in New York City, USA. This spontaneous uprising happened as a result of police harassment of the local gay, lesbian. bisexual, transgender and queer (GLBTQ) patrons at the Stonewall Inn and fortunately, the world has changed quite a bit since then. Here in the USA, such behavior by law enforcement today would initiate not only condemnation and civil lawsuits but other legal ramifications as well. I need to insert here that 50 years ago, the GLBTQ community was known by an entirely different label: homosexual. That label wasn’t always complimentary.
