Oh to be Nudist again..

I was watching Queer-eye earlier today, resting from an enormous and wonderful Thanksgiving. This episode was the one with the nudist. watching this episode really made me think about nudity which, lets face it, is never far from my mind.

They discussed the equality that nudists feel, that skin is the great equalizer, how it is about being comfortable in your skin and in your own body as well as with others.

Lately I have been happy to find myself gaining more comfort in my skin again. I used to be a bit of a nudist and there is a wonderful feeling of freedom in it. When inhibitions get in the way it can block many things, including, I believe, creative expression. I usually paint nude or just in my shirt so I have something to put my iPod in (no comments from the peanut gallery! ;)).

I truly believe the body is a beautiful thing, It is mysterious, surprising, expressive and powerful. I really never grow tired of it.

  1. Hi Jeannie,
    My name is Tom Mulhall. I am a nudist. My wife and I own The Terra Cotta Inn clothing optional resort in Palm Springs.

    You are so right about the beauty of the human body. All humans, tall short, thin, heavy, etc. are beautiful in their own right. Remember Michelangelo said “what spirit is so empty and blind, that it cannot recognize the fact that the foot is more noble than the shoe, and skin more beautiful than the garment with which it is clothed.”

    You really should go to a nudist resort someday. You will find it inspiring.

    Keep up the interesting posts.
