Why didn’t you say?


A couple of days ago I posted an entry which referenced the model and how there would be more of her tomorrow, something that didn’t actually happen due to my forgetfulness and generally being on holiday 🙂 

So let me right that wrong and introduce you to that model (an act you’ve known for all these years!) and someone who will be occasionally contributing to the blog. 


I have still been reading SLN, despite not being so free with my time, now that I’m a new Mum. Exhausting, wonderful, rewarding, beautiful motherhood. Now that I have some sort of routine established, I’ve been able to check up on what’s new in the SL naturist universe more regularly, and a post by Ella last week caught my eye where she said that she couldn’t blog because she had to research what she needed to blog next. There was clearly a time management issue there, which didn’t seem to happened to us so much when I had no child to impact on my SL time, and Ella didn’t have a new born to add to her other two.

Why didn’t you say, Ella???

The long and short of it is that I logged in, dropped her an IM and I’m happy to say that she accepted my proposal that I return, perhaps not quite as actively before, but hopefully to be able to occasionally contribute. Besides, I’ve missed SL more than I imagined.

One thing I am going to be doing as I contribute is to update my avatar, so as best to reflect the changing hairstyles I’ve encountered in real life now that I don’t have quite so much time in real life to go to the hairdresser’s as often as I once did!

My perspective on life has been altered by motherhood and marriage, so I thought that it might be useful to also change from being ‘Pookes’ to being Eva. My real name is Evelyn, but I’ve always been called Eva in real life. I joined SL in the days when you got a choice of a few pre-determined surnames, so I adopted ‘Pookes as something I felt offered a little bit of the feisty image I wished to portray all those years ago. It’s possibly worth remembering that ‘Pookes’ spent some of her time wandering the sims of SL, in those early days, as a vigilante/terrorist 🙂 rather than a peace-loving hippy chick! We all certainly do need time to find and develop our own SL personalities, don’t we?

No, I won’t have the time to contribute as fully as I once did, but hopefully I can throw the occasional blog post in to make life a little easier for Ella.



The Scope…

At home, for all of us, the scope of naturism isn’t quite as wide as it is on holiday. Where I’m holidaying, living in an apartment on a naturist ‘urbanisation’ (essentially a gated community) naturism is possible on a 24/7 basis, with easy access to the nearby beach and even possible on the public roads around where I am.

This makes a massive difference to the way a nude life can and is lived. Today, I won’t have any clothes on at all until after I sit down before breakfast tomorrow morning and do another blog entry.

The supermarket is closed, you see, so there won’t be any need to visit it for food. We’ve planned ahead and there’s enough in the apartment to keep us going until tomorrow morning (and beyond). We won’t be eating dinner out tonight. With six of us travelling, dinner is an occasional treat, rather than something we do every night, otherwise it would become too expensive. Tonight will be a simple pasta dish whipped up in the kitchen of the apartment and a communal meal had around a large table on the balcony.

Bearing this in mind, it means that I’m nude now, will be nude on our walk to the beach this morning and nude around the communal pool area this afternoon.

After all this time I don’t even notice I’m nude anymore, but in case anyone’s thinking that that’s just the voice of an experienced naturist, most other people find that the nude state becomes the natural state remarkably quickly. While being naked is something most people only know from their bathing routine or sexual encounters, an hour’s nudity in mundane, everyday situations puts an entirely different perspective on our own and other people’s bodies.

Strictly speaking, our naked day began a few minutes after midnight, and I snapped Jim in the pool while we had a midnight skinny dip.

Despite the sun being up in real life, my avatar has been able to replicate and enjoy the memories of that late night, real life skinny dip in the early hours by adjusting SL’s time settings for a night swim.

As a lazy Sunday begins, I’m watching people emerge nude from their beds, onto balconies, and stretch and yawn their way into the day. Clothes are unnecessary!
