after nearly forty years i found myself bathing outside naked. it was just me, birds, trees, rocks, the sound of running water, and a complete absence of fear. not sure why i had to go so far away to get here but i’d like to think it was worth it. only one person still living knows the story of my bathing naked in the stream as a child and what it meant to me. i love him and wish he were with me.
