behind the curtain

"This following type of formation is called a 'curtain.'  The foto does not nearly do it justice.  It is massive and sparkly all over.  Sincerely, people, caves are fascinating.  All the formations we saw were thousands of years old.  They are so beautiful, but hidden in the depths of the earth where humans and light hardly reach.  There was a river/stream flowing through one of the caves, and the years and years of slow erosion and molding of the rock was so evident!  Amazing!
For some reason that is reminding me of the most beautiful unique parts of ourselves, our inward thoughts and personalities that take so long to develop, that are continually changing and that are actually appreciated by so few.  Never completely - only by God.  And what of God?  We know so truly little of who God is. ..."

Hey M,

Just curious, where were you at when you took the photo?

I like your analogy to our inner selves...how true.

i was probably sitting in my living room eating cheese puffs or something when this photo was taken. my friend sarah, on the other hand, was in a cave in honduras, inadvertently getting acquainted with bat guano when this picture was taken.

i take no credit for these reflections, i'm just sharing them! more of her thoughts here.

I felt the same sense of wonder when we were caving in Belize. What a great connection to our inner selves though. I love that. Thanks for the link.
