The weather is on the turn and so is the country, if news reports are to be believed. The weather dictate’s naturist activities on the whole, while the government is now trying to dictate to the people, without even asking for parliament’s permission. David Cameron’s dictatorial conservative party want to take away help to the poor and desolate and at the same time remove worker’s rights and take away the right to protest, about poor pay and working conditions. Recently the prime minister gave personal permission for bombings in Syria without any permission being asked for or given by parliament.
Over the last weekend while we were at the club a new leader of the Labour Party, the official opposition to the government, was finally elected after a long drawn out campaign as left winger Jeremy Corbyn, was officially elected with a huge majority. It shows that there is mood for change it also signals the end of New Labours brand of conservatism as well.Although I’m a member of the green party I support the line Corbyn has been taking as there is a need for caring social realignment, rather than the capitalist conservative policies prevalent for the last 5 years. Corbyn was also present at the anti-austerity march in June that we both attended.
With the changing seasons we’ve seen some lovely variations in the colours of the trees through the summer, the bluebells have come and gone and now the leaves are beginning to fall. As I Mentioned in my last post it is still pleasant being naked in the cooler conditions, but whereas for the most part we’ve been sunbathing up to now, it’s a case of doing some jobs and keeping moving and so keeping warm too. Last weekend after arriving late on Friday, nearly all of Saturday was spent clearing away branches from behind the ‘Cabinchaletshed’ with my new lopper’s £7.99 at Aldi.
I also cleared a weed infested nettle area by the small toilet block. The weeding also involved raking and a little digging which kept my internal body temperature up, so I really didn’t feel cold, didn’t feel the need to get dressed and also built up a thirst for some beer in the evening. On Sunday after early morning rain, once again the weather stayed pleasant if overcast. After breakfast I decided to tidy up and put things straight in the common room.
With winter on the way there will be need for work parties to keep the grounds tidy but also to clear the drainage ditches to prevent any flooding around the grounds.As with any wood or forest it is important to manage it well, so each year pruning lopping and vegetation clearing, is done. Over the last year or two we’ve managed to clear areas or “dumping grounds” so now much of the club grounds has that natural woodland feel.
Living in Harmony with nature and each other does give you a wonderful purity, as well as body freedom and a real chance for you to just be yourself. For club naturists this includes being able to be naked without shame or judgement. Naturist living is such a beautiful concept, we in England need to break down emotional and social barriers that deter most people. We need to find more families to enjoy this wonderful lifestyle which takes place in clubs, like ours free from any sexual conation. We should not be afraid of our own bodies or those of others.
