Into the cave. Not clear most of the time. Palatial at times. Glowing, jewel-like. I first see a green light. Before long I realize that what I will find in this cave is my mother. I weep. The cave is sometimes full of stalactites and stalagmites. I have to put on various ceremonial robes. Within all the swirling is the realization that I am reliving my life backwards - to infancy - to birth - the cave is a womb. I am reborn.
