It’s wintertime here in the Northern Hemisphere, the very barren season of the year that seriously limits any opportunity for natural clothes free pleasure. That’s why I am trying to make it a tradition to salute all of our bare practitioners who reside in the Southern Hemisphere. This is, after all, their summertime and the perfect season for outdoor play!
Up until almost ten years ago, one of my favorite bare activities was to attend a local event sponsored by one of the several Washington, D.C., nudist social groups. The monthly (and sometimes twice a month event) was promoted as either “Nude Cocktails,” “Naked Happy Hour,” or a variety of other names indicative of the fact that it was clothes free and alcohol consumption was strongly encouraged.
ReNude Pride first published here in January, 2017! For me, the time appears to have grown wings and flown past and it is difficult to believe that this month marks another milestone! This isn’t the first public blog endorsing same gender loving (gay) nudity that I have published but it is one of my favorite leisure time hobbies. At times, it is an exhausting endeavor, but for the most part, it is fun!
Today isn’t the very last day of 2019. That happens tomorrow. However, after a winter break of one week, I’m returning to publishing here and will post Bottom’s-Up! today with a special New Year’s Eve post featured here tomorrow. It is sometimes difficult to compose a combined posting that incorporates both the Bottom’s-Up! theme along with New Year’s Eve.
Whatever the reason that you’re celebrating this time of the year, I want to wish the very best to each and every one of you for a very safe and happy holiday! May the joy of the season be with you and your loved ones for this festive occasion and beyond! Aaron, my spouse, and I plan to indulge in this week of rest and relaxation!
This time of the year always brings attention to the concept and the meaning of love, both platonic and romantic. The poem, “To Eros,” is one of my spouse, Aaron’s, favorites and one that he sometimes recites from memory – although the meaning of the poem – to him, at least – changes often. It was one of the earliest homoerotic poems that he can remember encountering.
This past weekend, Aaron, my spouse, and I journeyed down to the Tidewater, Virginia, area to help my first cousin, Michael Poladopoulos, and his partner (who prefers not being named here) prepare and celebrate their yearly winter holiday charitable event. It consists of a bare gathering for the Marine Corps “Toys for Tots” campaign to collect new toys for children in need so that they may share in the season’s happiness.
Today is my very final day at the office for this year! My last class for the day ends at 11:50, this morning, and I plan to leave my office shortly thereafter. Of course, it is too brisk and chilly outside to walk to my car bare and carrying my clothes. However, I have no errands to complete on my way home so I’ll be clothes free for the remainder of the day!
As I announced here this past Monday, I am ending November a day early here on ReNude Pride as Aaron and I plan to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with his family. Then, later, I realized that November has only 30 days, not the 31 that I always assume. I hope that everyone who observed the Thanksgiving holiday had a good day. Those who may have spent the entire day shopping for the winter holidays, I hope that you had a productive occasion. To everyone else, simply be thankful you escaped all the chaos and confusion!
Here in the USA, today is the day after the annual Thursday Thanksgiving Day holiday. For quite a number of years, this day was always the start of the traditional winter holiday shopping season. This habit became so much the custom that that most retail businesses have adopted a nickname or pet name for the day following the Thanksgiving observance: “Black Friday” – even though there is nothing black whatsoever about the date.
