When it comes to being naked one usually thinks of being without cloths. Me too for that matter, someone says they were naked my mind goes right for the 'without cloths' ideas. Mainly because there is nothing greater than the feeling of being nude and there is nothing better than seeing someone naked....female at least lol. But the very word naked means to be without cover and that meaning goes very deep. A tree can be naked, a person can be naked and even the truth can be naked......ok, its too early for philosophy but you get the idea.
Someone did a post about them being naked without his ring and I thought that was an awesome idea. He is a guy I chat with on Flickr, he is a bit of a nudest so when he said he felt naked I was interested in why someone who runs nude on a beach full of people would feel naked?!?
He was without his ring, which I totally understand. I have had a ring on my finger for almost all of my adult life, and if I am ever without it I feel naked! The ring has all kinds of deep rooted meanings behind the circle of life, the unbreakable bonds, two becoming one but for me it is about comfort. I do not feel right if my rings are off, I have not been without them for so long I am not sure I could even think right if they where to come off for any length of time. They help remind me of those who depend on me and come running to me when I see them everyday. So for me to be with out them would mean I was without meaning or hope. My rings have become a parts of me just as my family has become a part of me.
And even though they do drive me insane at times I could not think of any other place I would rather be. I am truly naked with my rings:
And yes I said rings, I wear 2 wedding bands. One is the original band we gave each other and the other one she got for me as a present a few years back.....it has a diamond in it!
