Inner Topographies
from inside the cave

The whole thrust of this investigation is to

go underground.

I'm going underground

he isn't - he's being cremated.

... and so begins my  response to my Wilderness Residency at Hastings Caves ... telling  stories from the cave - walking the labyrinth, caught in the web, a meditation, an exploration ... of the inner spaces of Earth and Being.  


 wish you were here


wish you were here

               you can hear the cave



                the river under the cave 


a waterfall 

                in the Cathedral
