My friends will notice changes. I will be trying to stay under the radar as I appear to have acquired a stalker via another nudist website. I don't want to lose the good friends and acquaintances I have from among online nudists, but I may have to. Pray that the idiot that tracked me down by *PHONE* took the hint went I played stupid. I am twitching right now because it scared me to the core.

We're bordering on winter here in Central New York. I live southwest of Syracuse in the hills surrounding the Finger Lakes. Frost has already hit, and nights have been in the high 30's and 40's for a couple of weeks now. The winds have grown cold but are still invigorating. The drawback is that currently I am unable to get out and revel in the changing seasons sans clothing. Work commitments and having 2 jobs instead of one has restricted my quality clothes-free time to stripping to my skin as soon as I walk in the door after work in the evening and staying naked until required to don the ugly uniform the next day. My supposed room mate (a textile college student) is rarely home anymore (though he keeps paying his rent) so at least I am no longer restricted to my office or my bedroom when naked.I will admit to wishing I could have found a room mate who was, at the very least, an at-home nudist like myself. However, considering the job market around here more folks are moving away than are moving into the area.
I have my hopes that things will improve soon, after all, I just turned 61 and keep thinking that, at this point in my life, I should be able to live the way I want to, instead of having to conform to the prudish societal norm...and in a best case scenario would be sharing my home with like-minded folks.
So, I am pushing my request out to the Universe and hoping for a change of fortune which will bring me nudist companions and the space to enjoy the lifestyle without hindrance of nosey neighbors 🙂

I have difficulty understanding what makes people fear or revile the naked human body, or the general need to connect nakedness only with the sexual act. Why must we hide what should be as natural as breathing? Our bodies need to be exposed regularly to the sun to replenish stores of vitamins, to help synthesize and utilize nutrients and hormones necessary to sustain a comfortable and healthy physical self. The unwritten social laws, backed by the legal system, prevent me from obtaining maximum health by forcing me to cover myself with socially-acceptable layers which impede my ability to absorb the sunlight through every inch of my skin. I risk jail and monetary fines if I choose to expose myself to the air and sunlight where others might see my naked body.
I see one historical cause for the free-for-all attacks on body freedom…that of organized religion. This deserves research and further pondering before writing anything factual. It remains to be seen how long it will take to get to this project.
I am realizing the effect that wearing society’s required clothing has on my health and well-being, both physically and mentally, which manifest themselves in skin inflammations and eruptions as well as in bouts of depression and reactions out of proportion with/to daily occurrences. How much is from battering against the walls of social stigmas and how much is mired in less-than-perfect self-/body-acceptance? Some may be rooted in the subtle ageism against growing older, especially as I approach turning sixty years old and reveal in my nudity a body marked well by the passage of time. I am a child of the “God/dess” only now seeing myself as socially acceptable with or without clothes, instead of through the lens of a restrictive upbringing under organized religion which deemed this body as shameful and to always be hidden.
What has been bothering me on a different front is the law concerning nudity which infringes on my rights within my home. Recently, a young man in New York State was charged with public lewdness for standing naked in his kitchen where someone walking by on the sidewalk apparently saw his nude body and was offended by it. This young man was forced to pay an enormous fine and now has a record for something he did within the privacy of his own home. That the offended party had to step onto his property for a better look was discounted in the proceeding, as the “crime” involved a naked human body.
My current home faces a very busy city street, and has a large picture window in the living room. I have placed mini-blinds on the side windows, which open, and keep the drapes closed over the picture window, both of which obscure the sunlight and keep me from seeing outside. However, if I wish to enjoy nudity inside my home I am forced to live in a cave-like atmosphere to satisfy the narrow-minded world’s prudishness and avoid annoying some “peeping-tom”. Where are my rights considered in this? Am I to be forced from my centrally-located home to some backwoods path to be able to enjoy my lifestyle within my own four walls?
Such a move would suit my temperament admirably, however it would remove me from the conveniences of city living, ultimately making it impossible to exist comfortably and affordably. All because some people can’t (or won’t) keep their eyes to themselves, and respect others’ rights to self-expression. Someday, sooner than later, I hope to move myself to a better location, more conducive to having a clothes-free home where I can open the windows on every side and let the breezes blow through and the sun shine in whenever I’d like. I have no problem closing the blinds after dark, when the lamps of the evening illuminate the inside of my home to prying eyes, after all it is only polite as I do not match the modern standards of beauty or age-appropriateness of being naked in public view. I simply want my right to live as I choose, meaning clothes-free whenever humanly possible, without social interference. Apparently, it is still, under current law, too much to ask.
