    The second weekend in December the Winter Wonderland weekend for young adults took place with masks and social distancing. The weekend was lots of fun with a drum circle, workshops, water play and bands playing poolside. There was a large turn out with many returnees as well as first timers. One of the objectives of the young adult weekends is to introduce new young people to naturism. It was a great success. It was a pleasure to see naturists of all ages intermingling and having fun together.

    Sunsport has an amazing staff

    The Maintenance and Grounds Team led by Roger Byrd keep everything safe and functioning smoothly, not an easy task. Recently, a new rental cabin on wheels has been completed and the clubhouse roof has been resurfaced. You may have noticed the beautiful plantings and the smoothness of the roads.
    Loreida Jones is creating delicious and healthful meals in the Naturally Nude Cafe, sometimes using produce grown at Sunsport.
    The Office Team led by Theressa Frazier does an amazing job of finding spots for everyone and overseeing the funds.
    We all appreciate how the Housekeeping Team. Daniel Watier and his staff keep the showers, rest rooms, community buildings, and rental units incredibly clean. Most important are our community members and guests whose spirit inspires us all.
    Please help recycle. Place clean paper and cardboard in the yellow bins and cans, plastics (except bags, styrofoam, and utensils), and bottles in the blue bins. Leave word in the office if you need yellow and blue totes or small bins which can be placed roadside near your site for pick-up. Most important, place large items such as platforms and furniture near, but not in, the dumpster. Place only bagged garbage in the dumpster.

    To help Sunsport and the environment, *please deposit aluminum cans in a special bin with a round hole in the top in the main recycling area.
    • The yellow containers are for paper and flattened cardboard
    • The blue containers are for aluminum cans*, glass, juice boxes, and plastics except styrofoam, bags, and utensils.
    • Deposit other trash in the large grey or black trash bins with tops.
    Please secure all trash cans tightly since raccoons are skilled at opening containers and making large messes. Thanks.

    Hey What is Permaculture?

    Geoff Farmer:
    Permaculture is a philosophy of design for creating a sustainable human culture. That is, it's a way of thinking about how we set up the support systems around us: shelter, food, water, energy, society and business. Well designed permaculture systems allow us to live as a beneficial part of the ecosystems around us.

    Art & Naturism.......naturist spirited art

    A Forgotten Twentieth-Century Photographer’s Wild Portraits of Women in Nature

    To capture her images of female nudes in natural landscapes, Anne Brigman sometimes set up camp for weeks or months at a time, eight thousand feet up in the Sierra Nevada. “Where I go is wild—hard to reach . . . because there [are] things in life to be expressed in these places,” she wrote to a Vanity Fair reporter, in 1916. Brigman would load her heavy camera equipment into stagecoaches that picked their way through the Sacramento Valley and up the American River

    “Dawn,” 1909

    Canyon, then finish her journey using pack mules to ascend to Donner Pass or into Desolation Valley. Her sister Elizabeth and a selection of friends often accompanied her, and together they would camp, hike, cavort, and pose for Brigman’s pictures.

    The work Brigman created on those sojourns made her a groundbreaking early-twentieth-century photographer. She was an artist who helped shape American modernist, feminist, and landscape photographic traditions—and was one of the first women to photograph herself in the nude. She showed her first photographs in San Francisco, in 1902, and a year later was anointed by Alfred Stieglitz, who awarded her membership in his Photo-Secession movement.

    “Heart of the Storm,” circa 1912
    She published poetry and art criticism. Yet her work fell into obscurity after her death at the age of eighty-one in 1950.
    “The Pool,” circa 1906
    This spring, an exhibition of her photographs, organized by Ann M. Wolfe of the Nevada Museum of Art, was scheduled to travel to N.Y.U.’s Grey Art Gallery. It was cancelled, along with almost all of New York City’s cultural events. It’s difficult to measure exactly where the loss of a single art exhibition registers on this year’s unfurling ledgers of terror. Yet I confess to taking this one hard. Brigman’s spectacular, little-known work has already waited too long to be seen.t this to insert text.
    The soft nude bodies in Brigman’s photographs twist and contort, pushed up against the trunk of the tangled juniper trees that are common in the harsh environment of the High Sierras; she captures knees sliding along rough granite, skin exposed to wind and cold.
