seeing and believing differently
Can the deep space of a cave complement the mass of a mountain I wondered? We reached our destination in a few steps down from vivid heat to monochrome cold, a short journey underground where everything became different. I felt immediately inverted, my gravity and perception shaken by lands turned upside-down, dangerous journeys, perilous events, improbable space travel. I was immersed in amusing and troubling true stories told by young and old voices of many tongues and times. I was entranced by the necessity to build a shelter from dessicated sticks on a hot beach or shout at glaciers or be absolutely still for 3 minutes 31 seconds. I forgot I was cold. It was a vivid and fantastic experience.
