-"You can't" -says Spain.

 -“You can't” -says the Spanish authorities to the Catalan People. 
”You can't call yourself “nation”
“You can't write on your laws that Catalonia is a nation”
“You can't convoke any democratic consultation”
“You can't decide the strategies of your education system”
“You can't manage your taxes”
“You can't decide the budgets of your country”
“You can't be a country, only a part of a bigger country.”
“You can't denounce the torturers and the executioners of the last dictatorship”
“You can't have your own national soccer team, nor your own national selection in any sport”.
“You can't propose your language as an official European language in the parliament of European Union.”
“You can't use your language in the courts, in the police station, in the borders..."
“You can't wave the flag of Catalonia in your ships and boats, vessels, frigates...”
“You can't show the signs and the words of your country in your car's registration plate...”
“You can't speak in Catalan when you speak with the Police ot the Civil Guard”
“You can be arrested and mistreated by the police when you wave the flag of your nation in a soccer field, and the authorities will not hear you claim nor help you when you denounce this injustice”
“The aspirations of your country will be judged and always vetoed by a Constitutional Court that is not politically neutral, with members of this court that are related with the political party that rules in Spain”

And finally, if you feel sad, you can't claim, because if you claim, you will be called sniveller... And if you express your wish of changing the political status of your country, you will be called separatist, radical, anti-solidary, conceited... And if you want to vote to decide if your nation remains in Spain or if you nation starts a new path as an independant nation, you will be called antidemocratic and intolerant...

Does any democratic nation think that this lack of freedom is only an inner matter of Spain?

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…
