The region around Tucson, Arizona, etc. sustains me. I have come to need these places to ground myself in my being. It has taught me truth and become necessary as a part of my spirit and sense of purpose and place in the world, in life. In short a healthy addiction, something that I couldn’t comprehend life, or care for life, without. Living life without nature and the experience of tasting it naturally, is not fulfilling.
The nature that I share here with you, is as a portal into my inner peace.
There is food, there is shelter, there are interpersonal actions, all necessary for happiness, but this sense of what I am and the wonder, what I’m a piece of, is every bit as important. Otherwise there is only an ego that demands to be fed, and empty part that isn’t fulfilled. I’m left with a restless longing within me.
Yea, that’s what I’m trying to convey with this blog. Every sense, breath, every tingle in every moment needs to be experienced and naturism is a key to that. That is something that we have all known in human history, and are cut off from today. Something becomes imprisoned by our own beliefs and perceptions and creations. The stress, the fears, the news, there is a whole world that we can largely do nothing about, that is stealing away with more personal energy than it justifies. And, we are to be more than animals surviving. The key to experiencing that starts with the baring of the body and the awareness found in that act’s gifts. It isn’t getting naked, it’s coming home.
One can attack nature, create the mighty hunter, play warrior games with Indian friends (Yes, Hendrix “Castles Made of Sand). You can use use it as a gymnasium only. Nature’s abode can be used as an escape from something, a place of freedom, a venue to party with people, to get blasted. Some just see the potential for condos in a given vista, but being naked there brings one home in a different sense. Experiencing life naturally may bring home a oneness, a sense of a something very real.
I’m saying that naked makes a change in perception, however one can do all of the human activity listed above nude. Focusing on the difference nudity brings, I am guided to my sense of naturism.
Just a taste, maybe a few minutes on a frosty night, to breathe, to feel every sense, to just be aware of what is, without all of the rest. Seeing the stars and the glistening across the ground, the feet alive, being aware of the adjustment, I think you know what I mean at those times. There’s a particular humanity to a simple act. I think that we all need that. You can fully experience and then get warm and shelter after the momentary journey.
Say, “It isn’t getting naked, it’s coming home.” I think that I found a slogan!

I love reading your accounts of your natural nature experiences. It is enthralling and I so wish I could do what you do, but in my home county of Kent UK, although it is legal to hike/walk/swim naked in public places, our countryside is nothing like yours. I love the wilderness and all it brings! Many thanks and keep up the good work!

We feel very comfortable traveling in our home state, and country, but when traveling out of country, I wonder how intimidating free ranging nudity can be. Is one more apt to stick safely to designated nude areas?
Thank-you for your comments. A guy appreciates a pat on the back here and there.
I’ve been a fan since the beginning of your blog and I look for it every week. I’m sure it hasn’t been easy to maintain such a prolific publication. My sincere thanks to you and DF for so generously sharing your adventures. Interesting wild places and beautiful photos. Looking forward to many more!
