In my Reflections: End of September, 2019, published here on Friday, September 27, 2019, I shared that Aaron (my spouse) and I plus Alex, my identical twin brother and his significant other, were visiting Richmond, Virginia (where Twin and I grew up) for their GLBTQ Pride Festival on Saturday, September 28. While enjoying the event, I visited the booth sponsored by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and picked up a map for a walking tour of GLBTQ sites in the downtown city area.
This academic year began this past Tuesday, the day after the Labor Day holiday. The overwhelming majority of my students are those that have previously taken a class that I have instructed within my department’s curriculum here at the university. The sole exception to this is a new class that my department head assigned to me based on my evaluations from this university’s School of Inter-Disciplinary Studies class that I taught. This new class is a revision of an introduction to our Deaf Studies curriculum that offers an exploration of both Deaf culture and Deaf studies.
As both this month of August and this season of Summer approach their closing, I do need to share a different recipe for a tasty cocktail that is conveniently known as Sex On The Beach. To those of you who were under the impression that this was a very erotic post, I apologize. I didn’t select the cocktail’s name. I’m merely sharing the recipe here in this entry.
Most people, once they’re taught how to dress themselves into clothes, know how to remove them. They do not need an extended lesson and practice in how to take off clothes and become bare. Practically all of us are born with the ability to perform this task and usually are able to perform it without the need of practice and supervision. There is a purpose in publishing this post here today. I’ll explain that purpose after the details on how to become bare.
As July slowly begins to close, I discovered this “poem” that I composed back near the beginning of this decade. I had entered it into my daily journal that I keep from eight summers ago. It must have been one of those summers where I seriously wanted to begin a “poetic” talent but I am never able to gather the stamina and steadfastness to achieve that lofty summit. Continue to read, if you dare!
Back in May, I published here on ReNude Pride information on the use of sunscreen protection. Actually, every May, I intend and do publish an article here promoting the advantages and the necessity of using sunscreen protection. I also understand that human nature is a very fickle commodity and many times a gentle and subtle reminder is needed in order to encourage both safety and good health.
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.
