I wonder how much I've really changed since I finished high school? I have certainly had a lot of different experiences over the decades.

I know that I have changed and swung from place to place lifestyle to lifestyle, fat to thin and back. The thing is that "back"part. So, what has been consistent has been some core values. Some have dropped off and some are still being discarded.

It is often like my mustache. It has been there since it appeared, but it has changed in its style, thickness and color.

My naturism and nudity has changed in style, attitude and circumstance, but the key features have been my experience of it. Raised with "nasty" activity, changed as a teen with one shower with a girlfriend to an attitude of wholesome. Revolutionary in the 60's, great fun and curiosity to see what people were hiding, a stand for humanity, a sense of escape from all wrong and to relaxation. A compulsion, a natural bit of voyeur, a spiritual integration, a sense of being, a tool toward change in consciousness and spiritual growth, something that needs liberation, a norm in a generally textile world, countless wonderments and oneness and gratitude. But consistently, it has just felt right, naturally a part of me, like that mustache. If only I could wear it as easily and as accepted as that mustache.

We adapt to the moment with what we know, or can relate to it. The high school guy is still in there and he might come out after being dormant, when the circumstance seems appropriate. Some things haven't basically changed in me, or I can revert back to that learning. Some things evolve and devolve. Change still seems inevitable. The guy in high school is still around, but his body has changed, his attitude and confidence is different, he is hungry for different aspects of life. He has some wisdom, but is not beyond exhibiting stupid.

I was discussing high school reunions with my 91 year old friend a couple of days ago. He has returned to his every 5 years. The last one had 12 out of 16 show up!
Barefoot all over, all over.

When I went naked in the woods as a kid, it was risky, exotic. I wasn’t supposed to be doing that. After growing up and moving away it was many years before I resumed out here in the desert. That occurred because I was out rock climbing and after putting my gear away I went on a naked hike on the spur of the moment.

No longer risky but fitting. I had been up on the rocks and mountain and taking the climbing of those rocks a little further I decided to experience them more differently.

Yeah, wholesome.

When I went naked in the woods when I was in high school, there was probably more risk than I realized, yet I never came close to being in any kind of trouble. We were living in a place, not quite a farm, that had a lot of wooded acreage, very hilly. I never thought of it as exotic or in any way like Tarzan or anything like that. I did see an occasional snake but there were no deer, so there were no ticks. My legs and ankles were always scratched up from briers, though. I used to go fairly long distances sometimes, too, at least by my standards at the time, but I frequently went beyond the boundaries of the property. I did a lot in the relative short time I lived there.
