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.
