Spain is not a real union if It doesn't accept the will of union of the nations that form it.

The  human maturity is a gift of all the persons who have learned to love; to love persons and peoples. The differences between the peoples, differences on languages, on views, on cultures... mean a richness from the point of view of mature people that have learned to love human kind and its diversity. 
However, exists a sindrome, an illness of the souls, an animal pulsion, a bestial power that push the persons to hate those who are differents. Some people hate the peoples that, inside their same political state, use a different language, have a different style or culture or habits or laws or life's conception... This fact is really an illness, a shameful and ugly illness, an illness that has its roots on the ignorance and the chauvinism of a bad education, an education tied to the hate to all the ideas or realities that endanger the war's possessions of the political state.
This is the drama of Catalonia, a nation decreased by the instinctive contempt of so many spanish governments that fear the culture, the freedom and the power of Catalan Nation.   When bourbon troops destroyed Barcelona in 1714, and when Spanish Bourbon Crown derogated the Catalan government, this centralist dinasty made efforts to delete any sign of what once Catalonia was. 
"Como si no tuviera gobierno alguno" (like they hadn't any kind of government) the spanish authorities wrote when they occupied the catalan country. 
They not only abolished catalan institutions, they also tried to delete any mark, any sign, any memory of what this institutions had been. They tried to show that Catalan nation never had existed. The Barcelona's banners and Saint Eulalia's pennon were stolen by the bourbon army and taken away to Madrid. The Marquis of Castel Rodrigo, that was the general of the Bourbon army, burned all the books, symbols, and signals of what had been the old catalan state.
"Y que no quede memoria de ellos..." (And that no one remember them...) said this monstrous person, educated in the hate to all that was different.

The current Spanish government defends with its attitude the scurfy and pathetic chauvinism of bourbon dinasty, treating Catalonia as it wasn't a nation, disregarding its will of nation, its will of deciding its own linguistical and educative police, and squeezing the economy of a land that have been working hard for centuries. 

At least, we want to decide in a democratic votation what we want for our land. Spain is not a real union if It doesn't accept the will of union of the nations that form it. If this votation shows the will of belonging to Spain, we will belong to Spain with joy. Laws don't make nations, the nations make laws. 

As you know, next november 9th, Catalan government, obeying the will of its parliament, has convoked a non binding votation to show what catalan people think about their future as a nation. Spanish government doesn't allow that votation. This prohibition has increased the number of persons that think that independence is the only way to live as a catalan in an asphyxiating circumstances of impositions and prohibitions.

Why Spain doesn't allow a democratic way of solving a conflict? What is Spain afraid of?

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…
