The heat has returned. It is meant to be spring, yet we have had some days this week above 30 degrees, which has meant balmy days and warm scented nights. Gone are chilly morning fuelled quick steps to the bathroom. Gone is the need to linger under the hot shower. Gone is Paul Newman (farewell you wonderful man.....but I won't miss be missing your salad dressings I'm afraid).

Welcome nude breakfasts and nudey sunbaking in the back garden (despite being pelted with seeds by the myna birds!). Welcome sleeping with only a sheet, and welcome being able to poke one's bottom out of the sheets without fear of waking with frostbitey. However, and herein lies the danger, when one doesn't expose one's bottom on these hot nights, one is liable to overheat and dream that the moon is in fact inhabitated, and then one is subjected to witness the earthly chaos that ensues.....

All in all though, summer is coming

Now all I need is you

And you

Oh, and you!!

So nice to be needed .

Especially when one is reminded of that eternal shift of time, when yet again we leave one thing behind, and head instead to heat and light.

thank you for that lovely post.

Those myna birds are just jealous of your gorgeous nudity.

I miss Paul, too. Perhaps he has moved to the Moon. You never know.

Happy summer, beloved one. Your photos are beautiful, though not as beautiful as you are. Myna birds? Get over it! None of us will ever be as lovely as Pod.

Hi, Pod. I came to your blog by way of Reya's. The light in that top photo is nothing short of miraculous. I am glad that there are people as skilled as you who can capture light like that on film for the rest of us to see. Thank you.

The city from the distance in the warmest light ever is truly magical. Nudity outside is so fun when it´s possible, enjoy it while it lasts.

Lovely photos to go with your beautifully written post. It says so much that is revealing, yet it hints at things I believe I understand, but I am not quite certain of. That is your gift to me, Podlet. You allow me to get to know you, but you keep me in suspense. I think you would enjoy my post today. I am working my way out of health issues within my family, and getting back to my world, helping all of us focus on the earth and it's beauty. xoxo from the Prairie. And yes, I am taking care of myself!

I'm trying to imagine the "earthly chaos" that would ensue if the moon were inhabited. I'll have to try keeping my bum under cover so I can envision that better. :)

The second image, especially -- a fever-dream of warm light. *sigh* Lovely, as ever.

Intriguing post with the references to nudity here and there. All as it should be.
