At first I thought and the thought was strange,
My life in clothes might be all arranged,
To reflect the views of those unseen,
Who rule with taboo and scare with unclean.
My thought fought my mind and my mind was uneasy,
Kaleidoscope rules to make me feel sleazy,
Was normal a being all covered in texture,
And not that of skin? Confusing conjecture.
So Nature met nurture the Yin and the Yan,
The truth needed freedom, perception of man,
Would my place in realm of the devil be booked,
If my body was seen, observed, overlooked?
I stripped back the covers and set myself free,
My expression of life was a mindset of glee,
In glorious nudity finally found,
Equality, liberty, the truth so profound.
The Naturists lent the Textiles the world,
The Textiles in dogma corrupted the soul.
Modesty doesn't vanquish a sin,
Naked is where at birth we begin.
The Textiles shame is the world that's on loan,
Is now disguised as moralities home,
Dogma, taboo, being dressed leads the pack,
But the loan is defaulted we want our world back.

I now have three readers who are giving me opinion and feedback. A British writer, an American Naturist and a British Naturist. Their contributions are invaluable on so many levels. I am still receiving input from a young British Naturist whose story is also a great source of literary and personal inspiration.
The more the merrier, so if you would like to get involved, please drop me a line.

I would rather have an enemy I understood than a friend I do not.
Editing of the first six chapters of both books is still underway and quite therapeutic. I don't know whether to look for an agent/publisher now or finish them both with a view to an ebook publication. Opinions welcome :-}

Sometimes the greatest fear is revealing the truth and sometimes the truth accepted with compassion is the greatest feeling possible.
Personal experience of the day but it may well end up in the book. I hope you all have a day as cathartic as mine has been. All the best to 'E' and the rest of Humanity. JCP

DJ chokes on some Coke and with splutters and streaming eyes exclaims. “You told your Dad! OMG Edward! What did he say?” DJ is now surprised that Edward is sat opposite him. That he has been allowed to see him again.
“He said I was being a boy”.
“That's it, nothing else? I don't believe it”.
“He and Mum said quite a lot really...”
“You told your Mum!”
“Yes, we talk about most stuff. I guess it's easier that way, no surprises. We're Naturists so talking about bodies isn't that unusual I suppose”.
“Bloody hell Edward. Does anybody talk to their parents about that stuff? It's weird isn't it?”

I had some inspiring help over the weekend from wonderfully articulate and open member of the Young Naturist movement. Their contribution has already influenced the character development and will probably continue to do so. Your stories will hopefully make these books more relevant, more familiar and more entertaining. Big thank you to 'M', the contributor, someone really worth knowing :-}
