Rok, at NWAT, has sent me a postcard of him enjoying what he reckons will be one of the last hot days of his summer, and he is seeking to make the best of it.
For those of us in the northern hemisphere, summer is now drawing to a close (although residents in this part of Spain will enjoy warm days until October and maybe even beyond. Or, at least, holidaymakers in this area will. The locals will be getting their winter woolies on in a couple of weeks, I expect, because everything’s relative to what you’re used to experiencing.
I’ve been out here in the early part of the year and able to sit in the sun, in a T shirt, in February having desayuno (breakfast). As I did so, a local cyclist rode by in his winter clothes and also wearing a ski mask!!! It looked like a scene from some comedy film about environmentally friendly bank robbers. 🙂
This is my last full day here, and it’s back to the UK for me tomorrow and the full expectation of months of rain, snow, more rain, cold and even more rain in long dark winter days in western Scotland. So I shall make the best of it, and even tomorrow up until lunchtime, because the winters are long.
And that’s one of the nice things about SL, and naturism within it. We can experience it, at least virtually, and have some sense of a reminder about what it is we love about the lifestyle.
And even if you’re only an SL naturist, and lack the opportunity or courage (yes, it does require some courage to make that public debut) to be a RL one, then you’ll find there’s what I style as the ‘genuine’ naturist sims, such as Eden, Nudity Where Art Thou, Su Casa and others (you’ll find the slurls on our links page) where you can gain some sense of what the lifestyle’s all about. And the ones who are genuine do a very good job of creating some sense of the lifestyle. Laidback, carefree and relaxing with a high element of sociability. And as SL is essentially a ‘social network’, it is possible to make very genuine friends who share this outlook.
So Rok sent me a postcard of his fading summer, and I’ll be writing my penultimate postcard later on (when I try to replicate yet another scene from RL). Why not send your own ‘postcard’ to us to publish? You know where we are, and you can send me -Ella Keng- an IM, an email, or however you wish.
