It happened. Book 5 in the Naked Crow series has appeared. I had never thought there would be 5 books. Maybe even 6 but I have yet to start on that.
While Jeremy blossoms in his new job and finds new ways to express himself, Sheila suddenly finds herself in Mississippi where a friend is trying to save someone’s life.
A fellow Shaman wanted to be a Shadow Dancer and that did not turn out well.
Follow Sheila to Mississippi and join her on her adventures!
Naked Crow 5 – Shadow Dancer is available as an e-book at:

I know, everyone who visits my site regularly is entirely aware of that. Nudity and sex aren’t the same thing. Nudity is the absence of clothes because the naked person does not want to have clothes on. This concept seems to become more and more incomprehensible lately. Our modern society seems to slip back in time for some reason. Nakedness is bad. Drone thinking is promoted to keep people under control and going in the way that some big power points out.
Free thinking out of the clothes.
This is something that makes naturists dangerous, I presume. Naturists don’t fit in all the way with their odd desire to take all their clothes off and show their bodies to the world. A world that secretly loves to ogle and drool over naked bodies, but which is denied their additional compound as these naked bodies refuse to supply the porn and lewdness that are associated with them.
Naturists aren’t about that. We fight an uphill battle because many porn mongers pretend to be naturists and nudists while spreading their mess all over the Internet, giving us a bad name.
It’s a sad world that most clothes-loving people are so brainwashed into that. This makes it very difficult for true naturists to be seen and recognised, let alone respected and accepted. It’s in the human mind to easily think the worst of someone or something, and with the bad examples so very present everywhere the porn-induced minds will ‘naturally’ expect naturists to be on the same shit heap as the porn industry.
United we stand.
Yes, it’s a beaten to death statement but it’s real and true. The global naturist society has to make a stand, one stand, to the outside world. Double standards, hidden (lewd) agendas from one or the other will break our credibility, and that’s already a difficult item to get across.
Yes, it’s something that worries me and occasionally almost gives me a headache, like it does to the lady on the right. She clearly was a nudist long ago and foresaw the troubles I’m writing about here and now.
Why does it have to be so difficult to just be the way we want to be? I’ve said it before and will say it again: the world’s a mad house when people are more frightened of a naked person than of someone who’s armed to the teeth. Violence, murder, war, all kinds of misery are laughed at when they show on television, but the sky falls down when there’s a female nipple on the screen for a second. And a completely naked person? Nearly incredible.
I wonder how certain television shows get away with not being considered porn. Perhaps because they’re based on artistic content?
A few weeks ago I was in the dumps because of our friend the flu. Felt horrible, awful, and didn’t get up for 5 days.
Of course I need to add here that I did not get a flu shot. I only got those twice and each time I got violently ill. Blaming the shots for that was a bad idea apparently, because this time I got seriously ill with the vicinity of a shot.
Apparently my brain was in turmoil for a while during those first 5 days of badness. At some point – I don’t exactly recall when but that doesn’t matter – I almost woke up from an avalanche of images that had been churning through my head and that sort of gave me an idea for a new naturist story. I grabbed my notepad (always have one next to the bed) and scribbled down what I could remember of the idea. Then I collapsed into the void of the flu once again.
So far the books I wrote and am writing are in the fantasy and science fiction realm. I love those two genres and I think I can do them pretty well.
This new idea is in the Historical Fiction genre. For those who aren’t aware of what that it, historical fiction describes things from history (obviously). Usually it involves well known places or people. Think for instance of books about King Arthur, Jeanne d’Arc, a war, or perhaps even the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The story doesn’t have to deal with that actual event but the event can take place during the course of the story. It’s that easy to write historical fiction, but it also makes it difficult because you have to get the facts right. Anyone can believe a bug-eyed, yellow monster coming from Pluto to devour our clothes, but for instance claiming that Marilyn Monroe always appeared naked on the set of her films… most people know that’s not true.
The story in my head
The story I came up with in my flu-ridden dream doesn’t deal with any of those subjects. So far it doesn’t feel like a difficult or complicated story, more something light and easy; something short.
I am definitely going to develop that idea and see where it leads me (and you). So far the future of the story is still in veils, as is the naked lady on the right. She’s from the right era of my story, I think, so for a while I’ll keep her as the mascot for the new book.
I’ve never thought that I would ever find a way to write something in the historical fiction genre concerning nudism/naturism. No matter how this story will end up, I’m thrilled that something actually appeared for it.
I hope you’re having a great day. I’ll be writing.
You may wonder why I call my stay at Vritomartis Naturist Resort an experience. Well, simply because it was an experience, and a good one. Anything that has to do with Crete has been a good experience for me so far, so I am probably biased. 😉
What makes Crete and Vritomartis so special? First: the people. I love the Greek people. Cretans know how to make you feel welcome. You’re not a walking wallet (a mistake that Spain has made), but you’re a guest, a friend. The atmosphere in and around Vritomartis is wonderful and relaxed. If I could spend my future days in Crete I would be a happy nudist writer. Vritomartis is special to me because I didn’t do very much there. I didn’t go out on any of the many (also naturist) excursions they offer. I was there to relax and unwind, and that worked out perfectly.
This may give you an idea why.
Another little something that made my stay at this resort special was that I finished writing Naked Crow 2 there, and it gave me the initial inspiration to write Naked Crow 3 – Nagual. Of course, lazing around near the pool and writing wasn’t all I did. Even during times of relaxation I sometimes feel the need to go out and do something. I took a few walks to the nude beach that’s connected to the resort, Filaki Beach. If you want to have a nice time at the water with the convenience of a small bar at hand, go to Filaki Beach. You won’t regret it.
If you want to have some fun around the resort, that too can be arranged. Aqua gym for instance. Low impact, fun and good for you. My favourite however was the archery part:
Imagine great weather, enthusiastic people, a coach who has fun helping everyone learn shooting with bows and arrows, and being naked. How can life be better?
Vritomartis hasn’t seen the last of me yet. And next time I intend to go on a few of the excursions. I’ve read comments on them and they are definitely worth the while!
There was no post last Wednesday. Sometimes life in the outside world takes over more than we want, and the last couple of weeks did exactly that. My Dad is 92 (imagine that) and needs a lot of attention now dementia is kicking in. That’s why I don’t spend as much time on the computer (and on writing) as I’d like. Priorities need to be prioritised.
How has your naturist 2015 been? Have you engaged in anything spectacular, like the people above who did the Bristol (UK) Naked Bike Ride? For me the trip to Lanzarote and visiting Charco del Palo was definitely the highlight of this year.
The year’s coming to an end rapidly, Christmas is around a few corners and soon after that we’ll have the opportunity to make 2016 a fantastic naturist year. I hope you’re with me to make that happen!
I need your help. I’m looking for books that include naturism/nudism in a decent way. A bit like the Naked Crow books I’ve written. So far I’ve found “Naturist, Red in Tooth and Claw” which was an entertaining book (despite the horrible editing and the mistakes in it), and also a book by Robert Longpré about travelling to Santiago de Compostella, “A Small Company of Pilgrims“. The last book on naturism I found and read was “Being Naked“, a short but very honest and wonderful read. Do you know of other good naturist books? I really want to know because I’m curious how many decent books about naturism and accepted nudity are out there.
With only 8 official beaches naturism in Brazil has a lot of growing up to do
In November the city of Rio de Janeiro sanctioned the law which made the Praia do Abricó in Rio legalized for the practice of naturism, seven other beaches are they, Bull’s eye in Rio de Janeiro, in Paraiba, Tambaba Massarandupió in Bahia, Dry Bar in Espirito Santo and the beaches of pine, Galheta and Pedras Altas in Santa Catarina are officers by virtue of Decree or byelawsin any other point of the coast where the bather undress he can be arrested for obscenity.
São Paulo being Brazil’s most populous state and still doesn’t have a shoreline dedicated to naturism unfortunately, this not counting other States could also have areas for the practice, following the example of France and other countries cities all over the world even the most demure already realized that naturism is a bonanza for the tourism marketbecause in addition to having millions of followers he cause good impression right next to those who do not practice it.
The last World Cup held in Brazil contributed to increase the number of foreign tourists in Praia do Abricó, because the number of regulars naturists more than doubled during the World Cup, these tourists usually have a higher purchasing power which helps to inject money into the local economy.
Praia de Tambaba in Paraiba is the example of this as it ended up contributing to the growth of tourism in the South coast of the State of Paraiba and thanks to six other nearby beaches naturist beach of Tambaba began to be visited by many tourists from the northern hemisphere. With their arrival, the small local businesses and the real estate sector also grew. The secret is the result of coordination between associations of naturists and the Town Hall.
To the University professor José Wagner, education leads to behavior change. “Nobody creates without making revolution. Naturism is progressing “. We did several events on the issue of naturism within the schools, so that people understand that it’s something odd Tambaba on our planet, “he says.
You’ve probably seen them. After all, they’re up every Sunday. I try to post nudist images of normal nudist/naturist people. Not the glamour stuff that’s been photoshopped to death and beyond, not the pretty people that will never represent mainstream naturists. (They probably wouldn’t want to be found naked among us anyway, so nothing’s lost there.)
An image says a thousand words, as the saying goes, and I use that. Each Sunday. I got a few e-mails from people who ask why I don’t post the pretty naked people. The exciting ones. Well, if you read this: here’s your answer. The exciting naked people are online in too many places already. They’re called porn sites. You can Google that.
For the real naturists I’ll keep posting the Sunday Noon Nudists. Be happy. Be naked. Be proud of your body; it shows who you are instead of who you pretend to be when you dress up.
When you go to a nude beach you see all the people you don’t want to see.
Yes. That’s probably true for the people who go to such a beach to look at people. The way they probably also go to a dressed beach, to ogle people and try to see what they can’t see because of the wonders of modern bathing suits (although those aren’t very covering lately).
The people who go on about this don’t have a clue about nude beaches. They may not even have a clue about textile beaches, because people – as far as I understand – go there to enjoy themselves and have a good time. Not to be stared at as if they’re strips of bacon hanging in a window to make other people drool over them. And that goes for both kinds of beach: nudists aren’t there to be stared at. They are not the super model kind of folks. I think I mentioned this before: there are perhaps 20 supermodels in the world (those are the skinny, malnourished people who have to live on air and a slice of lettuce, remember?) in a world population of 7 billion. That is 1 supermodel on every 350,000,000 normal people. How big do you think the chances are to catch all those supermodels on the same beach? Let’s forget the nude part here for convenience’s sake.
I’ve been to nude beaches. I don’t go there to stare. I go there to relax, to meet nice people and have a good time. The folks whining about us (yes, I include myself here) should stop that and be satisfied with photoshopped photos and manipulated videos of people who aren’t real. I’ll even throw in a beach background for them to make them entirely happy. As long as the whining stops.
Maybe someone can show me how wonderful, healthy and fit these whiners look themselves…
