It is 10:30 and I am at Tim Horton’s where I have begun today’s post. I got my small bit of grocery shopping completed at the grocery store across the road from the coffee shop and will soon be making the last leg to Green Haven shortly. With any luck, I will be on site and nude by noon.
I arrived at noon. Brenda and Gizmo, woman and her dog, were the first I met while walking with the camera taking wildflower photos and site photos. With the sun out, it is beyond exhilarating to be outdoors without a care in the world and without clothing. I have paid my fees for the three nights I will be here. I do wish that I would be here with my wife beside me, but “c’est la vie.” I am hoping that it becomes a reality the next time. If not, the likelihood of her ever joining me at a naturist site becomes very unlikely. That is an eventuality that I hope never arrives.
I got down to reading from Moore’s book, something that I haven’t done since I left Green Haven
“Many people think that the point in life is to solve their problems and be happy. But happiness is a fleeting sensation, and you never get rid of your problems. Your purpose in life may to become more who you are and more engaged with the people and the life around you, to really life your life. That may sound obvious, yet many people spend their time avoiding life. They are afraid to let it flow through them, and so their vitality gets channelled into ambitions, addictions, and preoccupations that don’t give them anything worth having. A dark night may appear, paradoxically, as a way to return to living. It pares life down to its essentials and helps you get a new start.” [p. xiv-xv]
