Hi Yana,

I decided just yesterday to take the picture off--finally, after everybody and their dog complained about it.  I guess nudity is a controversial issue in its own right and that we don't only cover our privates due to religious teachings of the past and out of fear of reprisal from gods.

Thanks for the compliment and encouragement.

Your website is inspiring in all respects, no doubt.

I wonder, who your intended audience is.  If it includes religious folks, whom you want to show the light of reason wrapped in humor and rational thought, then your naked picture almost certnainly will drive them to turn off the "light" by leaving the website and dismiss your ideas as deviant and degenerate.

Well, after such a long sentence, again, great work and don't give up!

Au revoir,
