I can’t believe it is already April. We are heading home in a few days. I am going to miss this place. This morning while I was meditating, the owner came into the back portion of the yard. She had never done this before so I was completely taken by surprise. What should I do? There was little chance that I could cover up without drawing even more attention to the fact that I was naked. And just as quick, she left once she saw me.
She returned a few minutes later and stood beside me. She had a pack of cards that she wanted to give us, cards that her mother’s paintings as images. Since we had talked to her a week earlier about returning next year, she thought that we would appreciate this gift. The portion of the house we were staying in used to be her mother’s art studio, and quite a few pieces of her art were in the studio.
Strange. I had been very careful not to have my nudity cause an issue because we liked this place. And now, the owner showed me that the nudity was not a cause for concern. I have to admit that I was worried that seeing me fully exposed would have resulted in her withdrawing the offer of staying in the studio for next year. Breathe … it’s okay.
