Bottoms-Up! September, 2017

Today is the last day of September, 2017. The month began with those of us living in the Northern Hemisphere enjoying our Summer and ends with us now beginning Autumn. For those in the Southern Hemisphere, the joys of Spring are now upon you. Have fun in your period of seasons-in-the-sun! Wherever you live, the reason I selected the lead photo for this post (aside from the subject’s buttocks) is the fact that he’s partially in the shade and partially in the sunlight. To me, it reflects the seasonal transition.

End of the Month Reflections: September, 2017

September, 2017, is almost over and another season of sand, sun and surf – Summer, 2017, – has already ended. As I’ve previously written here on ReNude Pride, for me, this has, until recently, always been a sad time of the year. I’ve never been a fan of the cooler and colder temperatures. Even as a child, I was content to stay indoors during Autumn and Winter and preferred not to venture outside until the warmer temperatures had arrived. That’s always been my nature and how I’ve lived my life. It’s only through individual counseling and group therapy that I, at least, understand why I am this way.

Bottoms-Up! August, 2017

Author’s Note: This post usually publishes on the last day of the month. Due to tomorrow being the twentieth anniversary of the tragic death of Diana, Princess of Wales, I am posting this today in order to remember the late Princess Diana.  

This is the very next-to-the-last day of August, 2017. Summer is almost over – which to me is unbelievable. This means that this is the final Bottom’s-Up! post for the Summer, 2017. The next one will publish on September 30, 2017 – in the Autumn season.

So bare your buttocks and  show off your pride! Summer is rapidly disappearing into the past! Before that happens, let the world admire your beautiful buns (buttocks)!

End of Month Reflections, August, 2017

We’re almost to the end of August, the final full month of the Summer, 2017. As for me, I’m left wondering, “where did this season go?” It seems as though we just observed the the beginning of the Summer, and now here it is, entering into the count-down for the last couple of weeks before another season. Autumn, arrives. It doesn’t seem fair that my personal favorite season of the year is the shortest, even though I know that this isn’t the case at all!

End of Month Reflections: July, 2017

In the photo above, as the clouds gather on the horizon, our nude dude on the beach thoughtfully gazes out towards the shoreline, unconcerned over the approaching storm. He’s content to remain where he is and as he is: bare. He’s focused on his thinking and is oblivious to worrying about something as unimportant as the weather. Why waste the energy fretting over a situation (weather) which not one of us can control? He has more important matters to contemplate.

End of Month Reflections: June, 2017

It’s the end of the month of June, which means that the USA national holiday, July 4, isn’t very far away. That’s the reason I selected this particular image for this post, there is an American flag hanging from the lifesaving kiosk. A premature reminder that even though it has just arrived, Summer is rapidly passing us by. The nude and clothing-optional beaches are calling out our names – go to one fast before the season is completely finished!

GLBTQ (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer) Pride Month, at least here in the USA, is over for another year. I hope all of us remember to carry around our gay and nude pride until the next one comes along. It isn’t always easy to be a gay nudist, so it is often incumbent on each of us to be as supportive as possible for all of our brothers and sisters. None of us are able to journey through life alone and unaided by others.

In celebrating GLBTQ Pride Month, I published my second interview here at ReNude Pride. The post, Interview: Dean of Black Nude Taurus, was featured here on June 19, 2017. In case you missed the reading the interview, click the title to be linked directly there.  

My first cousin, Michael Poladopoulos, began publishing his blog here at wordpress.com during this month. Our fathers are brothers and Michael is 9 years younger than Alex, my identical twin, and myself. Like Alex and I, Michael is also Deaf, same gender loving (gay) and a bare practitioner (naturist/nudist). I encourage everyone reading here to visit and follow his blog. Click on the following title to be linked to his site: Nekkid Furry Boi. I’ve already added his journal to the Bare Blogging Crew page here at ReNude Pride.

Summer is, at last, now officially here and I think that there’s no one any happier than me. This is beyond a shadow of a doubt my absolute favorite time of all the year! There is always so much to see and do during this season, along with the desire to see and do it all before Autumn arrives. Fortunately, the longest day of sunlight in the Northern Hemisphere always occurs during the summer season (June 21).

As we close out Gay and Nude Pride Month, let’s all remember that our month of celebration may be over. However, we all carry our confidence in being same gender loving (gay) bare practitioners (naturists/nudists) with us throughout the year. We should all hold our heads us high!
