    This is an extremely interesting piece. Thanks, Donna for bringing it to my attention. 🙂

    • You are so welcome, Merrill. The poet Clayton Eshleman wrote a book, “Juniper Fuse” on cave paintings he visited in France and infused it with many poems that are startling in imagination and visceral responses.

    There are many wonderful sea caves in France… and I have amazing books on the formations that people have discovered. It is indeed a dream world within our world and once bitten by the bug… well, I know a lot of cavers who do things way beyond normal capabilities… The experience seems to reinforce something in their spirit.

    • So like what you said here, Merrill — ” The experience seems to reinforce something in their spirit..”

    Perhaps a better word would be awe inspiring. National Speleological Society puts out a calender every year from cave photography from around the world that offers many views of some of these formations… but to actually go there and do it … there’s a grotto in just about any region that can help anyone who wold like to experience it actually do it.

    • Count me out. But you sound like you had some interest in it. Did you ever follow through on that?
