Reasons why to vote YES for Scotish independence. (The view of a foreigner)

Only Scotland's people can decide their future, and I deeply want what Scotland's people decide, whatever this decission be. The only and real victory will be what people decide. However, despite I am not Scottish, and that I'm Catalan, from my far view,  I would humbly like to express to you, Scotland's people, my wishes of independence for you. But I want to insist in the fact that my wishes do not matter; the only important and essential issue is the opinion of Scotland's people. 

Why I think that the independence is the best future for Scotland?   

-... because, perhaps, one day, the government of UK may not be like the present UK's government, that is democratic and respectful. And  because perhaps, one day, a future UK's Prime Minister may not respect the right of Scottish people to be free, to have a parliament, to call themself “nation”... If Scotland gets its independence, this drama will never happen.

-...because, perhaps, one day, in a far future, Scotland's people want to be independent... and perhaps that day, the UK's government may not allow a referendum... and perhaps that day this prohibition may produce an explossion of violence and war. The peacefully freedom of today can avoid the possible war of tomorrow.

-...because with a yes to the independence, Scotland will teach to the world that to reach a political aim none needs to war nor to hate nor to destroy anyone... Now is the time to leave archaic and bestial ways to solve conflicts. Now is the time to turn violence into dialogue. Now is the time to transform the contempts into democratic attittudes.

-...because the capacity of every nation to decide all about itself  is a natural power, and a good power, and a healthy  power... more healthy than the charge of depending on other people to decide about the own interests. 

-...because with a yes to independence will become true the dreams of those who gave their lifes to achieve a free nation; Robert The Bruce, William Wallace, Andrew of Moray... and many more...

-...because the great achievements need great risks. And because the right to decide the own policies and the own fates is a great achievement. The great victories need the braveness and the generosity of taking risks to benefit the future generations: your sons, the sons of your sons, and all those to come. The future generations will thank today's generation for its braveness and generosity on the decission of building a free an independant nation.

-...because the democratic oportunities to reach independence are not abundant, are rare chances. If Scotland looses this occasion, many generations will lament this wastage. For centuries, in the past, many people have yearned a free and independant Scotland. And in the future, many people will remember this moment and this chance.   

As a catalan citizen, I dream for my little country an opportunity like yours... You already have this opportunity. Make it! Be free!

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…
