Greta Thunberg. Protect, Restore, Fund. #NatureNow | The Naturist Page

I’ve mentioned what I’m about to say in the past, already before. It has been my favorite quote since the beginning of my pages and my blog. Not sure what I’m talking about? Allow me to refresh your memory.

“Naturism is to be close to nature and attentive to natural elements. For ourselves and for those around us the way nature and life was intended.”

That been said, Naturism isn’t only about promoting body freedom and respect of ones’ self and of others. It’s also about being in tune with nature and everything around us. That includes our climate. Just as Greta’s video below explains. It’s important that we protect our planet for generations to come; so that they can enjoy it as much as we do now today.

Too many people have the following mindset and it’s only going to make matters worse. “Ohh, It’s not going to happen in my lifetime, who cares” or “Ohh, It won’t happen for a long time, why should I care now”. That train of thought is what’s going to make this planet uninhabitable… fast. Moreover, big corps and governments are the worse for this. They don’t care about the planet as much as they should. Do you want to know why? Because as long as they have the money rolling in to their bank accounts, they don’t care of the repercussions or the effect it will make on the environment. They will continue to destroy the forests, oceans, the land and digging up oil to burn fossil fuels.

As a Naturist and having a passion to be intune with Nature. We’re not going to have a nature to be intune with at the rate the planet is deteriorating. As we continue to remove trees, grass to make huge cities, making roads, highways and large parking lots that in my own opinion… only 40% of parking lots are actually used. generates so much heat because of the sun. Essentially, generating heat like an oven and raising temperatures on our planet. The trees, grass and plant life act like a defense against the sun’s UV rays and help keep the planet cooler. In an example. If you stand in a dense forest away from everything. You’ll notice that it’s much cooler than being in a major cities’ downtown. Now, if you take the same principles and stand in the middle of Arizona, there is no grass, barely any trees & is very hot.

The shorter and less dense the grass, trees and plant life, the less protection the surface of the planet has and eventually will dry up and create a desert. A barron dead zone where very little life can survive.

I stand with Greta Thunberg with these three words. Protect, restore & fund. #NatureNow

It’s time to loose yourself in the natural environment by getting that garden started after the long and dreadful winter we had, had.

Here’s the top 10 plants you can consider this year, to optimize your Naturist environment.

1. Petunias

These bright-colored beauties are often planted to repel squash bugs, beetles and aphids. They need a sunny spot, so try them near your vegetable garden or in a window box.

What’s wrong with being human? | The Naturist Page


The Naturist Page

What is wrong with society that it is required for one to be covered up or women can not be topless like men in public? Textiles have been taught that you must be ashamed of your body and must cover up when others are around. WHY?! What is so bad about the human body.

We, like all life on earth were born in our natural state. Was it the church? Was it government? It’s sometimes hard to determine what exactly; sometimes its the parents who were grown up in these terms that they can be so paranoid about being seen in public nude for a variety of reasons. A side from the obvious of what I said, body acceptance, view of not only their body but how clouded they view others from media, magazines TV commercials etc. The try to make you feel ugly so yo can buy their product…

The 2018 Summer forecast | The Naturist Page


SONY DSC

Bare River

Excited about summer? Sure you are! I was just checking the Old Farmer’s Almanac to see, just how our summer may wrapped up to be. Though personally, it’s too early to truly predict exactly how 2018’s Summer will be, we can have an idea what it can be based on the old farmer’s almanac.

It seems that for the month of April will have an average temperature of around 4.5°c with about 95mm of precipitation. May will see slightly less precipitation than April, however it’s only going to be in June and July where we’re truly going to see and feel summer.

June and July will have very little to below average precipitation & the hottest periods. In this case, hoping to see a lot of time to sunbathe and swim to work on that all over tan. As for the month of August, temperatures will be high and with a lot of precipitation mixed with thunderstorms.

September and October will be around average temperatures but low in precipitation. Though it will be warmer than normal.

When looking for new Naturist friends | Scott RedCloud


It’s not all that easy when it comes to finding like-minded peers in Montreal to be able to consider as friends when it comes to the Naturist lifestyle. The reason for this maybe more me, however, this same fear or anxiety that I have might be shared with others having this same concern.

keyboard-120307[1]I have been in the chatrooms, meetup groups, searching Facebook groups to find people who I can relate with — with no real success. Don’t get me wrong, I have found many friends online who I can relate with. the only problem is, they live very far away. I have trusted Naturist friends in the USA, Europe, Australia, Canada, etc. Just none close enough to the Montreal region. I use to have two good Naturist friends. (Alex and Jean) I now just have Jean, since Alex has retired and has been traveling across the USA and Canada now with his new partner Betty.

The problem I have with associating myself with other people is they claim to be a Naturist… upon further evaluation of the individual, I usually find out they are not in to the lifestyle for the right reasons. Usually they are more on the sexual side of the lifestyle instead of being serious in to the lifestyle. Being a male, even I’m getting targeted by these kind of people. I can only imagine what it would be like to be a female. It’s no wonder there are more men in Naturism rather than their being a balance when it comes naturism.

naturism1[1]There is always that fear of people who do not share the simplicity of the fact that Naturism does not equal sexual acts or gestures. These individuals need to learn that Naturism is the same lifestyle as the clothed life, only that we as Naturists simply rather live clothed free with no intentions of being like the media, news or the uneducated public like to portray what nudity is.

facebook-friends-ftr[1]This is why I have issues with making Naturist friends. I might be very critical when it comes to making family friends, I might be too strict, but I’m doing it for the right reasons to protect not only myself, but my family as well.

When looking for new Naturist friends, the main keys to look for are body language (big pointer there), conversation (are they serious? are they being suggestive?), keeping on topic (do they take interest in the conversation or do they keep changing topics), Are they able to have a conversation and keep to the topic when it has nothing to do with nudity? Last but certainly not least — EYE CONTACT! These are just a handful of things to analyze when attempting to make a new friend of the family.

AANR_Int gives Intersex individual the cold shoulder | The Naturist Page


It all started out as a simple call out to AANR_Int’s Twitter feed when an Intersex individual was simply requesting information on rates with a minor argument on fees due to sexual orientation and it blew up out of proportion for no reason. The following is the original post as seen in a group and retweeted tagging AANR_Int. Their response was not only off topic but by their response, not even cared about and giving Mikia the cold shoulder with their off topic reply.

 

 

 

The reason i’m not only angered by this reply is because they did not even take into consideration of this Intersex individual what so ever. After this response i’m requesting AANR for a re-review of this topic. Personally I believe a better in depth reply is in order upon this ordeal.

The Naturist Page | Montreal’s Summer is so far all washed up!


So far this summer is truly all washed up. With the early spring flooding with rising water levels and nearly every day with more rain or scattered showers, it’s been nearly impossible to go to Oka or Bare River for a decent day in the sun to enjoy the summer. Now we’re in July, it’s only 2 months left of summer and most over here on the east coast have had not much to work with when planning a simple outing without checking the radar.

If you’re like me, I’ve been constantly planning my day based on the radar. moreover, you can not always depend on the radar or forecast because it’s that kind of weather where even meteorologists have a hard time predicting when rain or storms come because you can check one min, then the next there is a developing system out of nowhere! Don’t blame the weather man/woman, this year has been kinda like a game of Russian roulette!

We do hope that the weather improves so that we don’t need to rely on the radar or forecast. After a long winter for us Canadians, 3 months of summer really does go by too fast to get your all over tan at your local Naturist beach, campgrounds, resort or simply in your own yard! To be honest, this year I’ve gotten more of a tan at home on my balcony than anywhere else because of this unpredictable weather we’ve been having this summer.

Barefooting in Naturism | The Naturist Page


SONY DSCI truly love the ability to be able to shed the clothes off to truly feel alive and the liberating feeling that goes with it; for me it’s another step to be a barefooter. For me, it takes it to a whole new level.

I was always barefoot at home because I can’t stand anything on my feet. It’s also more comfortable that way. My first barefoot experience was not at a campgrounds, resort, or the pool… that’s a very common place where most of us are barefoot and that does not count.

I was about 10km from home wearing my old sandals when a thunderstorm came out of nowhere, bringing heavy rain with it. The sandals I was wearing are dangerous when they are wet because it’s like walking barefoot on marble floors with oil on your feet! Not gonna happen or I’m going to hurt myself! So I decided to take them off and walk home barefoot in the rain. It was a really nice feeling on the feet with the rain and the puddles. The whole walk home I got to experience so many new sensations and textures. Walking in the running water along the sides of the streets, wet grass, dirt, mud, rocks, even the painted lines on the roads have a different feeling on the feet. My feet never felt so happy to be free from footware! When I got home I was like a wet rat but that’s when I decided to try combining my love for Naturism with barefooting.

IMG_20140615_193637My first all day being truly completely free of the clothes and footwear was at La Pommerie, centre naturiste et écologique. I went there with my buddy Happy Bare one year and decided to spend the whole day naked and barefoot. While there are people there with sandals on their feet (and that’s fine) I wanted to be more in tune with nature by Earthing. (“When we make direct contact with the surface of the Earth our bodies receive a charge of energy that makes us feel better, fast.”) My favorite place over there to truly feel connected to nature was in the forest with the leafs, mud, and running streams. Oh there were some bridges to get over some of these streams, but I took the road — I mean stream less traveled on and walk across the stream, rather than taking the bridge.

SONY DSCSince that day, I find myself going barefoot a lot more back home in the city. However, there are more things to be cautious about when barefooting/earthing in the city. Watch out for sharp objects and other various foot hazards. My favorite place is talking a nice long walk along the water front (River in my case) I really don’t mind if my feet get dirty because I know after that I can clean them. Also, I always carry a pair of emergency sandals where I go.

Of course, if you’re new to barefooting/earthing, your feet will take some time getting use to rough surfaces. With time your feet will adjust and get used to it. I highly recommend barefooting/earthing for all ages! You’ll thank me later when you experience the feeling or sensation of being connected to the earth.
