The willows gate I’ve been through these willows a thousand times. It was when I saw the picture on the monitor that the title emerged. It is only a symbolic fact: it concerns only me who gave a name to this passage along the path. And now, I feel that there is a before and … Read more The willows gate
To hear the timbre of the voice, the words of the poem one must be present. The camera captured and drew with light: in front of nature, we are excessive, we are too much; overexposure cancels us out. And it is good that way; it invites us to look around us: man is not the … Read more Reading a poem at a waterfall
If you are a naturist and have talked about naturism with friends, you surely have some who told you they would never ever try. They cannot even think about showing their “private parts” to others. You may sometimes wonder how to convince them to, at least try. Here are three ideas to try to convince … Read more Naturism, No, It’s Not For Me! Never!
Back home, I was looking at myself in this picture; but immediately distracted by the bright, backlit green of the horsetail. We probably also have a kind of chlorophyll that transforms light into energy and health. I can only adore this wonder: I feel in me an intimate sense of belonging, of continuity with nature. … Read more State of grace
The use of the mask, consciously or unconsciously, is changing the way we see, our reactions and the very image we have of other people and the world. The face has become a forbidden fruit, accessible if you have the password to unlock the barcode. Now that we no longer have the chance to see … Read more Prohibited fruit
I have passed by this meadow a thousand times, a thousand times I saw these two poplars, but only a few days ago I noticed that they were a “happy couple”. If you notice, there is no branch in the middle, as each of the two trees was respectful of the other and did not … Read more The happy couple
It occurred to me that COVID-19 has presented an ironic turn-about. Every day, there are more news stories about people who are upset about requirements to wear face coverings or masks in public places. Some even react violently about the rules. While the debate over the coverings obviously is a multi-faceted argument, one thing is … Read more Face Covering Irony
I think this is one of the few blogs a I have made. I don´t like it anymore. I used to be a very active blogger in the 2000, focused in politics mainly. But somehow it started to get on my nerves. Blogging is somehow restricted. You have to follow a certain format, you have … Read more Naturism, blogging, lockdown and Salem.
Easter full Moon Yesterday morning I went out because I wanted to take pictures of the Easter Moon before the sunlight made it fade. The Civil Defence had left me a mask in my mailbox. It was the first time I’d ever used it. It’s mandatory in supermarkets, and everywhere. When I saw the photograph, … Read more Easter Moon
Just saw this site on a twitter feed and I decided to join to hear about other fellow human nudist share their life stories. Would be glad to be your friend anytime. I know some of you are cautious so when you are ready drop me a line. Still trying to figure out how to … Read more Hi Everyone!
On the subject «if you dare they don’t care». Towards the end of November it rained a lot, the path was filled with water. The strange fact, together with the particular incidence of light and the colour of the autumn leaves created a vision of a certain suggestion. I set my tripod and undress for … Read more When other see me naked
I consider myself naturist, but I have find it difficult to deal with in real world. Naturism is connected to nature, so I cannot really say that it fits well in a modern world we live in. The clothes emerged from a way to protect from us from weather, shame, to something that symbolizes our … Read more Naturist soul
Today’s blog post at my home site is perhaps a bit controversial. What is your take on what I have had to say there? https://rglongpre.ca/CanadianNaturist/2020/01/26/naturism-doesnt-make-a-person-a-better-or-worse-person/ 0
Remember that we are all equal. We are all human. Everyone is nude; I am. You are. Your neighbors are. Your parents are. Your children are. Even your colleagues are. When going shopping. While at work. When going out for a walk. When going out with friends. Nakedness cannot be avoided. All we are doing … Read more We are all equal
What I see here is a human being. A body, beauty in one of it’s most natural forms. It comes in different shapes, sizes, and colors. It has evolved itself over thousands, if not millions of years. Some of us decide to alter our bodies to fit our mental image of ourselves (transgenders), some of … Read more We are all humans
Body nakedness is a way to mind nakedness and vice versa. All the inner thin wibes we feel in our body when we are naked shake our thoughts. And even more, we can reach a state/place of thoughtlessness without fear, without shame: free from fear (law, society, neighbours…); free from shame (moral/social scheme, duties, slavery…). … Read more Body-mind nakedness
I was born naked. You would think everyone else was not. Ever since I can remember, clothing seemed completely unnecessary to me. As a kid, I swam naked, I slept naked, I played naked. Even though my friends insisted on wearing clothing I preferred the natural option. Now that I’m a Free Man, I take my freedom … Read more Being and Nakedness
