big difference between the words, ‘naked’ and ‘nekkid.’ ‘Naked’ means you don't
have any clothes on. ‘Nekkid’ means you don't have any clothes on - and you're
up to something."
My conclusion - no discernible difference at all: Naked - a body without clothes, nude. Nude- wearing no clothes, unclothed, uncovered, naked. Nekkid - a humorous pronunciation of naked, a person with no clothes. What do you think, my dear readers?
I'll be on the lookout for similar projects that depict the normal, everyday woman, not the photo-shopped, perfect model types. Someday I'd like to see photo gallelries of women of color, or women over 50, or even the full-bodied woman or men even...
As nudists, we're all about body acceptance, right?
One hundred twenty-five were chosen for American photographer Spencer Tunick's next photo shoot in the UK next week. BBC plans to make a documentary of the event. The location is secret. Were you among the chosen?
I love reading. And there are way too many books to read before I die.
My fiction reading tastes vary and go from one spectrum to the the other on the genre scale. I read mysteries and thrillers, SciFi, erotic fiction, romance, urban fiction, Young adult fiction, Children's fiction, literary ficton and have even read one or two Westerns. Here's a literary bucket list that was sent to me by a colleague. It's more of a "challenge" list where one is challenged to read outside their comfort zone or read something different.
Remember the PulpFicition Book group in NY I wrote about a couple of months ago? Go for it! Start your own topless group.
I just now added this event to my Naturist Bucket List - number 6...to be part of some big nude event.
Buffalo Central Terminal, 2004
Here is one participant's account of how the day went in Buffalo, NY, Buffalo Central Terminal on August 15, 2004. I have a very close SL friend, Bow, who is in one of these photos somewhere. Where are you, Bow???
It looks cold and the floor looks dirty. It was an abandoned building, but I would still love to have been there or anywhere Tunick is going to next so guess what?? I signed up to pose and you can too! Was Spencer Tunick was in the UK recently? At Hastings Beach? Or was it just wishful thinking?
Tunick WILL be in the UK on Saturday, May 17 at the Folkstone Georges House Gallery at Museums at Night. Are any of my UK readers going to be there? You in the UK have until May 12 to sign up if you want to pose. We all want to hear about your experience if you get selected.
I like being nude at home. Home is where I feel most safe and comfortable, where I can let it all out, as they say, and be in MY element. This blog post caught my eye the other day. It asks the question "What does a committed nudist do when he or she has visitors to their home?"
My first impulse is to dress when visitors or repair or other service workers are expected. Am I being courteous when I dress for visitors? I believe so. Am I being true to myself at those times? I'm not sure. Am I allowed to do what I please, in any way I please in my own home? Yes! But, so many people have misconceptions that nudity is an invitation to sex. I wouldn't want to give an unintended invitation to a stranger who had other ideas.
Should I place a sign like this at my front door? What about you, dear readers? How comfortable are you with being nude at home when others are expected?
