She stepped out her back door with hesitation. Was she really going to do this? Practicing nudity in your own house is one thing but this was different. To walk around her sprawling acres naked was not something she would normally do. But doing all those normal things she SHOULD do, had left her feeling restless and frustrated.
Seeing her nakedness in the glass reflections became more commonplace and less shocking. Little by little she was learning to be comfortable with her body and accept it, flaws and all. But that was in the safety of HER world, where nobody would judge, where nobody would see her. The 10 acres of heavy woods she lived on was very private. Really nobody would see or judge her there either but it was a big step.
She took a deep breath and scanned the yard with a critical eye for any signs of life or prying eyes and propelled herself forward. “Just relax and enjoy it”… his voice replayed in her head as she tried to remember to breath. A few more steps and out of the shadows and into the sunshine she had moved. She closed her eyes and whispered to herself her new mantra “Just relax and enjoy it”.
She listened to the wind whistle through the trees and tried to slow down her heart to match it’s ebb and flow. She took a deep breath and could smell the flowers from her gardens across the yard. It was the sudden awareness of the warmth of the sun on her skin that made her realize she had been shaking. Not because she was cold, but nervous and afraid. She lowered her shaky legs to the ground below and closed her eyes again. “Just relax…” another deep breath.
She forced herself to stop over thinking and just focus on the sensations. The wet grass that clung to her exposed skin was itchy. Soon she realized it was rather comforting giving her a familiar feeling of something next to her skin. The birds she had not really noticed before became increasingly clear as they sang their songs of praise. Cheering her along in her quest for peace and tranquility. The gentle wind softly sending an aroma of perfumes from her gardens reminding her she was safe at home. “Just relax and enjoy it” another deep breath….as she raised her face to the sunshine.
After the uncertainty passed she could feel the sun warming her body. Her skin began to tingle sending goosebumps up her spine like the touch of a lovers hand. Touching and exploring every inch, every curve, every dimple and appreciating each and every one of them. It was a spiritual connection with the earth. She was not only exposing her body, but her soul as well. Offering herself completely without any false coverings.
The warmth spread through her completely and it was at that moment that she found peace and happiness worshiping the sunshine.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.

Lucky to have a few of these. Privileged to be this for some.
Another backyard idea
