Being a model is every girl’s dream at some point in their lives, a female colleague said when I told her I have been asked to be a model for artists/students.

True confession: I’ve always wanted to be a model, though my upcoming session is hardly what I had in mind. I had envisioned strolling — in stilettos — down the catwalks in New York, Milan and Paris wearing the latest fashions. But that won’t be happening quite yet. Instead, I will be posing in the buff for art students participating in a drawing workshop featuring models of diverse sizes and ages. The theme is Body Acceptance . . . which is a central theme of Naturism/Nudism. Indeed, I was asked to participate because of my interest in — and writings about — Naturism/Nudism.

Hey, I’m not shy. I won’t have a problem with being naked in front of sincere students/artists there to practise their craft and at the same time learn something about body acceptance. I’m happy to be able to help them.

Of course, I will blog about my experience. And I might actually get copies of a sketch or two to share with you.

As for heels . . . sigh . . . would you believe that I asked the organizer of the event if I could wear platform sandals? I explained that they are an extension of my body, and she could explain that to the students. Doesn’t that sound artsy?

Her reply: “And your platform sandals are most welcome to be a part of your modelling experience!”
