Blossoming cherry tree

Irresistible to pose next to this cherry tree so beautifully in bloom. We try to attend and stay close to beautiful things that make us happy just by looking at them, just because they exist. The mere presence modulates our mood, and from the mood slowly moves a reset of thoughts, connections and knowledge. Sometimes … Read more

My little almond tree

This year the almond tree bloom is late. It still doesn’t fail to give joy to those who watch. I’m glad to have it in my little patch of garden. Lombardy is on its umpteenth lock-down: you can’t get out of your home town. Spring is borderless, and I like having this term of comparison … Read more

First sunbathing

It has been a cold and rainy winter as it should be. I carefully keep away fears and hopes, obsessions and news of the moment because they distract me from the peace and serenity of nature. I fill up on warmth, vitality, vitamin-D and all things “positive” about life – I don’t need tests to … Read more

Anticipation of paradise

I am reading a vulgarization of the of Honorius of Autun in an ancient Venetian dialect (written shortly before Dante). The work is a kind of agile catechism, consisting of questions from the student and answers from the master. In paragraph 81 of book three, the student asks the master: «What clothes will God’s elects … Read more

Alone, we bare it !

Has your daily routine been affected by the covid-19 epidemic ?  We have been a little more restricted to staying within our own home, although that hasn’t been such a major change it has been more noticed when we have really wanted to be with other members of our small family. We don’t usually have … Read more

Mistletoe

A photo from a few days ago. In the past years, I used a photo like this one to wish a happy new year to all Naktiv’s friends. The sun had just come out from behind the hill (around 9h15), and two park rangers had just passed by. It was perhaps 5°Celsius, but without wind, … Read more

6 Ideas For A Fantastic Naked Year 2021!

After a tiring and bizarre year 2020, I wish you a happy, beautiful and naked year. While many wish to quickly forget 2020, it has also enabled some to discover the joy of living naked at home, through remote working, and thus contributed to expanding the naturist population. It made people discover remote encounters with digital … Read more

2020-2021: out of the tunnel

A tree that has become dry from the ivy has fallen, almost blocking the way. But a passage remained, I passed through it and a word formed in my mind: it seemed to me that I was coming out of a tunnel. This is my wish for all Naktiv-friends: to get out of our tunnels … Read more

Dressed by landscape at 5°C

Irresistible to be there this morning after a few days of rain. And to feel embraced by the light, by the landscape: I have names for everything I see: Monte Guglielmo, the strip of Lake Iseo, Monte Isola, the little church of Cremignane. The fresh morning air wakes me up better than a shower; the … Read more

Convert Garden to Volleybal Court

My attempt at gardening here in Central Texas has been an unpleasant flop. Due to virtually NO rain all last year and I not wanting to go out and water EVERY day has turned me against standard gardening. It’s FAR easier to just go buy it at the store. I’m not giving up completely, I … Read more

We remember years gone by when our home was filled with family & close friends, all adding to the wonderful atmosphere and the hopes of better times ahead.  This year sadly my wife & I will be alone, … Read more

Autumn

In Autumn you can understand the reasons of a whole year. Different colours are tuned together, different beings and things match perfectly: this is the picture I have in mind. Thousands of words are ready to be spoken. The real world-natural world says it better with silence.   +1
