This came so close to my heart.
“Such a subtle yet powerful word: naked. It cuts away the veneer, the facade, the superficiality, the false front of society, the hypocrisy, the impotent armor protecting the cowering soul. It liberates, it exhilarates, it frees one to take in the full feast of all senses. It reveals all, the true confident nature of god-people who have better things to do than build false pretenses. It is the final throw down, the “all in” at the poker table, the note on the wall that says, “I’ll fight anyone in the school, any time, any place.” It’s the one true test of character, of both pride and humility, of honesty and challenge to dishonesty.
God, how I love that word!”
