“Seasons will pass you By “
British summertime officially ends today(right now in fact) as the UK’s clocks go back an hour,while we sleep and we resume daylight saving time once more.With the end of summer, comes a change of season and a change in mood and outlook. Autumnal times bring an end to the growing seasons and as the days grow darker and leaves fall we remember the summers of yesterday and the dreams of our youth. Seasons change every year and very little actually changes year on year but as we grow older our views and feelings change a lot and in turn our lives move on. The four seasons (winter, spring, summer, autumn) have a huge impact on how we lead our daily lives. This ranges from the food we eat, the drinks we drink, the clothes we wear or don’t wear and the activities we take part in. We even listen to different music, for example, Christmas songs and carols in winter. The seasons go as follows
Winter – December, January, February
Spring – March, April, May
Summer – June, July, August
Autumn – September, October, November
I suppose our feelings to the changing seasons, adjust as we get to know more and experience more in life, but for some autumn time is a time that some people do find life a bit of a struggle. For the best part of four years now I’ve struggled to get work during these times of austerity, this being the total opposite of the previous three decades. During the decades past, I was up with the larks and came in when it was dark even then as I entered my thirties; I struggled as the days drew in. Autumn is a season filled with change, days become shorter and, although it is often warm and sunny during the daytime, it can be cold at night. In autumn, leaves fall off the trees and hedges and autumn can additionally bring strong winds and a lot of rain.
Winter can be nice and can be enhanced by bright crisp days, but on the whole I long to be rid of winter as I detest the damp and hate the snow. The days are even shorter (in daylight) and often very cold. Sometimes the precipitation will fall as sleet and snow, and quite often we wake up in the morning to frost and ice on the floor. In the UK the winter is usually cold and wet; however it does differ in other parts of the world. Winter is an awful time for naturist people being forced inside and although events are arranged in clubs and at swims going outdoors naked for most part is impossible.
Spring is a time of hope with new shoots growing everywhere, also animals and people come to think of it, product new offspring. In the springtime the sun rises in the earlier hours of the morning and sets later on in the afternoon. The days get slightly warmer and on occasions we can undress and go for a walk. Spring flowers start to appear, birds start building their nests and the farmers deliver new-born lambs. Weather in spring is very varied too, and then we are back to the barmy days of summer.
Summer is a time we always look forward too. The days become both warmer and longer, the sun shines almost constantly, and the air temperature rises this provide us plenty of time to go out take off our clothes and enjoy ourselves naked as nature intended. Naked camping and going to Arcadians for long weekends is possible too. Although the sunny weather is fun and we can spend more time outside, the sun’s rays can harm our bodies so at times we all need to do to protect ourselves by applying sunscreen so that we don’t get sunburned. Summer weather can vary as well, but if we are lucky, June, July and August will bring some warm sunny days.
Regardless of the seasons naturism and the love of nature is something we can all enjoy whatever the time of year outdoors and indoors.
“The time between the notes relates the color to the scenes
A constant vogue of triumphs dislocate man, so it seems
And space between the focus shape ascend knowledge of love
As song and chance develop time, lost social temp’rance rules above”
I get up, I get down
I get up, I get down
I get up, I get down”
