Being Bare in Cold Climes

It’s cold out here.

No, it isn’t snowing though it feels like it. I took the liberty of turning a cold, evening scene into one that captured a sense of what the body and mind felt, rather than the objective reality which is not often a good barometer for what goes on inside of a person. I used PhotoshopElements to create the effect, a combination of glass, ripple, and rain effects.

Needless to say, I didn’t stay outdoors very long when I took the photo because of a cold, north-east wind blowing and a decided lack of sunshine. In spite of the cold and dark skies, I am in a positive frame of mind due in large part to the new adventure that I will begin with Sunday morning’s flight to Vienna via Toronto, Canada.

As I’ve mentioned in the past, it seems that I feel somewhat warmer when nude outdoors than when I wear clothing. Well, that is only up to the point when it gets too warm outside. Then, the reverse comes into play – I feel refreshingly cooler with the lack of clothing. The lack of clothing encourages the body to self-regulate. Clothing inhibits this natural body function, and perhaps over time, our ability to have our body’s inner thermostat work effectively is compromised.  Something to think about.

    • Thank you, Vittorio. I am enjoying your blog. Google translate does a decent enough of a job for me to understand the message. Of course, I use context and intuition to fill in the gaps and eliminate wrong translation choices.

    Or you can break the thermostat completely by becoming a eunuch. Eunuch menopause is horrible, much worse hot flashes than a woman. I left a comment here describing it:

    Everything is different like day vs night.
    I live in Phoenix & without testosterone it hurts wearing a shirt in the summer heat (unlike the hormone people who act just fine) but yet there is no good feeling which is a bummer sometimes. Naked people are not sexual to the non hormone replacement eunuch but it just looks like a body like anything. Can’t wear pajamas or underwear to bed because my stomach expanded so I have to eat a lot b4 bed & it makes my skin hot in bed. Can’t wear underwear during wake hours because it’s too hot & I have heat sensitivity & that would trigger more h flashes.

    There’s a book called 1587, a Year of No Significance & it says several eunuchs fainted during a hot summer day. It’s actually no fun being naked without T (not really) but it is relief from heat because I’m like a broken AC. The best way to not get hot flashes is be hungry, but this doesn’t help with heat sensitivity.
    Also I have to eat alkaline so I won’t get thin bones. But at least I stopped the hair loss & I look young!
