From my personal journal:
I don’t have to tell my gentle readers how much I enjoy taking a shower. I’m sure many don’t really appreciate their time in the shower; they only see it as a necessity for the utilitarian task of getting clean. They probably don’t take the time to enjoy the sensation of the water droplets massaging their bare skin. They probably don’t take the time to relish the fact that every part of their body is exposed to the air and given a chance to breathe, even if only for five or ten minutes. Our skin is one continuous organ and it all needs to be exposed to air and light. Yes, I enjoy and relish my showers and afterward I am reluctant to cover my clean and natural state with clothing that blocks the air and light while restricting circulation and movement. Alas, I live in a society that has been a war with nature, particularly its own nature, for countless generations. I beseech you, isn’t it about time we broke the cycle and stopped fighting this war against ourselves?
