Member Voice for March 11 - Chaos!!
Our theme for March 11 is - Chaos! A condition or place of great disorder or confusion.A disorderly mass; a jumble. An abyss; a chasm.
Abyss -
A bottomless or unfathomed depth, gulf, or chasm; hence, any deep, immeasurable, and, specifically, hell, or the bottomless pit.

the bottomless gulf, pit, or chaos of the old cosmogonies
an immeasurably deep gulf or great space

intellectual or moral depths

a very deep or unfathomable gorge or chasm

anything that appears to be endless or immeasurably deep, such as time, despair, or shame

Jumble -

To mix in a confused way; throw together carelessly

To muddle; confuse

To be mixed in a confused way

Chaos -

a state of utter confusion or disorder; a total lack of organization or order.

disarray, jumble, turmoil, tumult

I think you get the idea..........


(good luck with this one...... I am stumped!)

Hi Doreen, I am stumped too, I did see some dark dark chasms when I went to the Mulu caves in Borneo. I suppose the darkness will cause chaos.

If memory serves me right the Greek word chaos refers to the state the world was in before creation... Your cave pictures seem like good illustrations.

Sandra said...

great comment dawn, you are right, and also chaos means chasm or abyss which is what this looks like

My mind sure to go into chaotic panic state if I'm there in the darkness!
Looks like the photo link at FMTSO is down, can't see any at all. Perhaps server's down, quiet a numbers of sites I can't access at all...maybe due to the earthquake and tsunami that strike Japan a few hours ago?

LOL - and I thought you had taken photos of snow...

Now that is chaos. No way for me to figure it out. So as I mentioned to someone else what looks like chaos may be an orderly mess up. LOL Blessings

The inside of a cave, an interesting choice for the theme. Intersecting tunnels in a cave can seem quite chaotic.

Kerry said...

oooh it is an abyss alright. I'm glad you didn't step into it; one thing I've never had a desire for is spelunking.

Hope there is no panic over there due to Tsunami?

Pauline said...

Well done, Ann. A great example!

Your photos certainly do fit the abyss and darkness definition of chaos! Works for me!

Marja said...

An interesting cave. Chaos and devastation are on my mind having seen the devastation in Japan. I heard there is a tsunami warning for new zealand as well. Keep safe

Karin said...

Interesting subject matter - not fond of caves and darkness! Great photos!

I think I am claustrophobic I get panicky when I see the photo. About my photo-chaos, yes that is true one time our shipping lines has the tendency to overload and it caused the ship to capsized. I think today the big shipping lines are careful not to overload but for small time shipping lines I don't think they follow it. So sometimes it's scary.
Happy weekend!

It's fits the abyss. Very good find!

J9 said...

Great take on the theme - I love cave exploring!

Doreen said...

that is dark and out into the abyss for sure!! I did go into the caverns once, on a tour, it was interesting.
