Cave of Forgotten Dreams

A few weeks ago I went to a movie with my friend CW. We picked a documentary called Cave of Forgotten Dreams (it's nice to have someone to go see documentaries with, they are a rare breed) which was playing at the flea pit in Eau Claire.

It was a remarkable explanation and introduction of the Chauvet Cave in southern France which I never knew existed till seeing this film. Spellbinding. Beautiful and mysterious.

I don't want to share too much because I don't want to ruin your experience when you see it-- which I think you must. 32,000 years is a long time ago and you'll be mesmerized by the discoveries. I've been thinking and talking about it for over a week now. Well over a week.
