European countries

Nice naturist beach of Catalonia

I usually ask myself what an american person think about european countries. What Does an american man, or woman think about country's definition. Do they think that a country is the same than an state? Can they imagine that, in Europe, an state can own, inside of it, a lot of languages, a lot of cultures, a lot of nations?
European history is full of wars, king's and queen's marriages, tyrannical decisions... This sad phenomena have forced political situations that many times don't respect the free will of people; and free will of people is democracy's soul.

Catalonia, for example, my little nation, belongs, by now, to Spanish state. Nowadays, most of people of Catalonia wants a referendum to decide if Catalonia continuous in Spain or if Catalonia gets a free independent state. Spanish government prohibits referendum. Spanish government uses a particular interpretation of Sapnish Constitution to prevent six million of catalan persons from freedom and from the ability to decide. 

During the last centuries, Spain have been prohibiting, despising, stepping, destroying... the language and culture of catalonia. The mentality of Spain despised everything that was not Castilian. Castilla is the region that has appropriated the identity of Spain. Castilla has imposed, over the centuries, just castilian culture; other cultures and nations in spanish state have been relegated to a secondary position, and many times spanish government has tried to delete catalan culture. 

We might add to all this a strong tax collection. Money travel from Catalonia to Castilla, and very little money back to Catalonia. 

Catalonia people want decide, but they can't. So... we can say that there is a nation, right now, in Europe, that can't decide freely its future. 

I will often write about Catalonia in this blog.

Nudity is not promiscuity. Naturists are not swingers.

Many people confuse nudity with sexuality; but human sexuality is present in all parts of human body, not only in the covered areas.
In my case, I defend the exercise of a responsible sexuality within the family. I believe in freedom, of course, and everyone can do what he wants, but in my personal life, sexuality belongs to family; it is a matter of my wife and me.  On the other hand, I think that a united family is the best place where children can grow up. I think that love should be present in all human relationships. When I say love, I mean really the love, empathy, will of good for people I love. Feeling is neither the cause nor the essence of love. Feeling is an usual result of love. But love is more than feeling . I can say that I love you  when I want all the good for you, in spite that the good for you doesn't mean a pleasure for me, in spite that the good for you means an effort for me. I bathe naked on the beach, and I sunbathe naked, that's true... but I do not prete…

Cañuelo Beach (Tarifa) (Cádiz) Andalucia.

Today I'm not going to write about a Catalan beach, but about Cañuelo beach, in Tarifa (Cadiz) Andalucia. In this beach, we can see a soft continuity between forest and sand. Any paved road is far away. Free nakedness is mixed with swimsuits. Here we have freedom to dress or undress. Sun is reflected on the deep blue sea and on the green pines. When summer dies, winter dress landscape in gala. The Sea grows dark and It bedecks with white handkerchieves.   

Beach is longer than two hundred metres; at ten o'clock, It is immersed in a bright solitude.

At one o'clock, beach is full. Naked people, dressed people... Freedom is chaotic. Uniformity is a consequence of imposition. We must walk along five or six quilometers to escaping from paradise and go back to the civilitation. The path follows a narrow line between the hills of a mountain steeped in beauty.

Sometimes we fear big animals that eat near path. They also fear us.

We see a big sand dune in the distance. The dune emerge fr…

Our society is trapped in the quick-sands of fear

Scott Fitzgerald would writte «the bright tan prayer rug of a beach» to express a feeling that it hardly can be expressed. When we talk about natural beauty we are really talking about our mother, our origin, the source of our being; and not only of our body but our inmost being. The shape of our naked body reveals the paintbrush of a misterious beauty. Here we are a reality beyond the physical interest or the material sensations. Sadly, some people who approach to naturism are trapped on the surface of the matter. We have an iceberg and some times we think that the ice is just the ice mountain outside the sea. What we see dazzles us, but some times it also blinds us. On the other side, we have a society fearing its own being; a society that wears a mask. Where is your voice, society, when you talks as if what you say was the script of a perfect play? Why do you fear your natural voice? Who does tell the truth if everybody says what society wants to hear? I often experience an empt…
