Hi y'all

Postby Dracofyre » Sat Aug 31, 2019 5:38 pm

Hello from Charlotte, NC. Ive been enjoying reading posts here gor the last several days and decided I should say hello. Im not sure, but I think when cookies are turned off posts dont stick, so Ive actually tried responding to several posts but nothing is there. No worries, I'll just keep trying.

Im a Christian of 47 years and without a doubt its been the most impactful and defining thing of my life. Ive lived all around: Charleston, Ashville, Chicago, Tulsa, Dallas, Pueblo, Lisbon, Nairobi, Maputo, Beira, Amherst and now Charlotte. Each of those for over 6 months, for all but two for a year or more. I speak Portuguese, read Greek and get around marginally in a couple of African languages, my Hebrew course starts next month. Im a linguist and I work for a Christian organization, wont say which, I would like to keep my job, you understand. Gotta stay anonymous. New at nudity but sold on it. My family is moderately tolerant. I live with my wonderful wife, adult son and daughter and we are raising my 6 year old grandson, the only one that joins me in nudism.

Scriptures are my passion, followed by my family, Tolkien, Lewis, Kreeft, MMOs (especially LOTRO), banjo, home repair, and recently, this site.

Write back with greetings and share your passion. I would especially love to hear from folks nearby.
Blessings

Dracoyre,

Welcome to the Village.

You sound an awful lot like me (with a couple extra years as a Christian).

I love studying Scripture, especially with my wife and especially as God created us, in our garden, surrounded by many of His beautiful creations (except mosquitoes).
SON-cerely,
Nathan Powers

Hi Dracoyre,

I am new here myself, an Englishman and also a proud American, living in West Texas for the last nineteen years with my beautiful wife and now also my adult stepson, neither of whom are naturists. Just found and joined a local group but not yet met all of them, but it’s good to have likeminded company.

Howdy and welcome, Dracofyre. What a great introduction. There are a couple of us linguists, armchair and otherwise, on this site!

Yes, I could study Scripture for hours at a time. Fortunately it is part of my job description. Love the fact that you study it in nature and au natural, both. That would be great.

Ive been to England several times. A delightful country.

I havent found a group yet. Am a little cautious as I fear I could lose my job if they discover how much I enjoy and practice it. So I envy you there.

I actually found them on Craigslist when they invited new people to join. They had over 80 folk apply but are vetting them so carefully that only four have been accepted - which gives me more confidence about the group.

Hi Jim,
I'm honored to be greeted by one of the most frequent posters on the site. Thanks. I'm loving this community. Thanks for the kind words about my life. There have been plenty of hardships, but the Lord has been with me through it all.

I like your avatar, all happy and natural. I havent found the statutes for what I can use for my avatar, except for the technical limits listed on the avatar posting page. Will my photo get nixed if it a photo of me but without my face. I hate to be anonymous, but there is too much at risk if Im recognized. My ministry would be over, and a photo is not worth that, you understand. Just wondering what is permissable.

Blessings,
John

Wow, Ive never found that on Craigslist. Imagine that. I actually know about a Charlotte unlanded club, I just havent attended one of their meetings yet. Someday.

Hi Nudie,
I saw you avatar a couple weeks ago and it intrigued me. Are you an artist, or maybe a nude model? Anyway, thanks for the warm welcome.
