against perpetual night

  2. Ha. I didn’t even look at the picture, I must confess. 🙂


  3. This is GORGEOUS.


    1. This sounds like someone’s been buried alive and is trying to reclaim her existence among the living. I’m sure it’s a metaphor. 🙂

      1. That is actually a picture of me struggling through my first tunnel in a cave in West Virginia. I decided to go for it and while I was inside the mud and stone, my boyfriend took a picture 🙂


    2. Added Bonus: That is my feet sticking out of the mud!


  4. This seems like a reversal of the birth process, defying the need for light and space.

    1. It was an experience like no other, fighting further into darkness rather than towards light and warmth
