Cave Dwellers – Under The Sun

Living in a cave. A simple life.

 


“Even
After
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

“You owe me.”

Look
What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.”

    Old Age. Do we like it? – Does it attract or repel us. The ladies in the photos are cave dwellers. They do not own anything nor do they go out in the world. They sit and meditate through the days. Yet, in these elder ladies I see something appealing and regal and something else, I admire. Their ability to let go.. eve

    • thanks so much Who.. I just need to be seen. I have not heard from 20 lines a day yet. Hope I do. I am sure the ladies are well looked after there in their cave. They don’t have anything much, just each other. They do in a way do much better than the elderly here. These ladies were devotees of the guru who had once lived in the cave. I have hundreds of photos yet to post.. Its a nice hobby.. The photo blogs are all really nice. I have a quite a hard job to be noticed among them! lol eve
