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!
Finally, for most of the East Coast,
mid-Atlantic region of the USA,
Spring, 2019, has arrived!
What other time to get out into nature and get natural?
Upon the return of Spring every year, people almost everywhere are fascinated with the amazing reappearance of nature. The barren days of Winter are officially over as the natural abundance of nature starts to grow and to decorate our environment. No matter how many Spring-times we’ve managed to survive, the renewal of our natural world offers most of us hope and happiness. The drab wilderness that we survived is returned to life again!
This year’s continuing live drama from Chicago, Illinois, USA, that concerns and involves the noted Black and same gender loving actor, Justin “Jussie” Smollett, and the Chicago Police Department, has undergone even more development and publicity since my last Friday Footnote posting two weeks ago. To reference the two previous Friday Footnote posts on Jussie Smollett, please click onto Hate and Shame and Friday Footnote: Jussie Smollett. The initial posting carries information regarding the attack on the actor. The second posting contains background material on Jussie Smollett and the current charges.
Yes! Finally! Spring is now officially here in the Northern Hemisphere! The meteorological Spring began back on March but now the astronomical season of Springtime started this past Wednesday evening (yesterday) and today being the first full day. No matter which beginning of the season we follow, it is now undoubtedly with us!
One of the aspects of the month of March that I really appreciate is that it is always a time of transition, of going places, of movement. It is the month where, at least here in the Northern Hemisphere we begin in the season of Winter and by the end of the month we are undergoing the change into the season of Spring. The outdoor temperatures may not always reflect the difference but mentally, we know that it is happening.
Here it is the last day of February, 2019; time again for yet another Bottom’s Up! feature here on ReNude Pride. It is still winter here in the Northern Hemisphere, so we’re forced to honor this day inside, protected by the heat from the frigid temperatures outside. Even though we all know from experience that warming days are not too far away, it remains too cold to entertain thoughts of frolicking outdoors anytime soon!
