Naked is a state of mind

“…MADRID, Spain - Seven middle-aged Spanish mothers who posed for a tongue-in-cheek nude calendar — a fundraiser for their children's tiny, rural school — are now saddled with debt and 5,000 unwanted copies….”

I read this story yesterday and saved the article and picture to talk about today. The picture caught my attention. Well, anything that has the word SPAIN in it always seems to catch my attention; I’m Latina at heart; maybe from a past life, and well, that’s not really important, or relative to this blog, I suppose.

I think these women; these mothers are beautiful, courageous and fucking sexy! Not just because searing hot, red, blood pumps through their Latina veins either. These hot mamas were trying to do something good for their kids; trying to earn money for their kid’s school. Admitting their ranking as amateurs in publishing and marketing, and ahem; posing semi-nude, they ended up with too many calendars because they missed last year’s Christmas shopping deadline with the publisher (the louse!). Keep in mind, this is Spain; heavily drugged in incense and myrrh of Catholicism; celebrating Jesus’ birthday is well, it’s a huge deal. I’m so tempted to send my eight dollars; equating to nearly a billion Euro these days and order a calendar; saluting their efforts.
