Good morning everyone-I have to wonder where they come up with these interesting holiday's.
Now most of you know I am an avid gardener but I had NO idea they had a World Naked Gardening Day til yesterday when I happened to catch an article about it on the web.
I can imagine there will be some folks like in this pic who will happily prance around in the posies in their birthday suits.
I love playing in the dirt and watching things grow. It is a sense of joy and fun except if are like me you get carried away and plant a 1/2 acre garden then at times especially since my back and body are being a "BEAR" but NOT "BARE" it is more of a chore you want to get finished and just enjoy. I found this snippet and while I agree with the overall message and am all about supporting our enviroment this avid gardener will be out in her garden today and most days when the sun is out HOWEVER she will NOT be doing so in her BIRTHDAY SUIT.
Our culture needs to move toward a healthy sense of both body acceptance and our relation to the natural environment.
Gardening naked is not only a simple joy, it reminds us--even if only for those few sunkissed minutes--that we can be honest with who we are as humans and as part of this planet.
