About The Grotto

A Grotto is a shared, yet secret space… although difficult to find, they are more common than thought, but overlooked by most… Places like a deep cavern, revealed by the low tide, or a particularly green glade marked by a ray of sunshine… a lofty resting place high above the ground where the horizons expand and the silence pervades… Although, unseen by most whom wander by, grottoes are illuminated with clues, signs and intuition. Those whom are aware might find a bit of peace, solitude, and rejuvenation in these places.

This blog is an attempt to find a  space such as this on the web.
