When I came home from Spain, I couldn’t stop thinking about my experiences in Tito Bustillo Cave. I decided to learn more about prehistoric civilizations and share what I learn with others. And I hope to be able to go back some day, not only to Tito Bustillo, but to many of the smaller caves in northern Spain I have learned about.
In my studies, I find that a group of young spelunkers discovered the cave on the Thursday of Holy Week. One of the discoverers of the cave, Celestino Fernandez Bustillo, called Tito by his friends and only 18 years old, died three weeks later exploring another cave. They named this cave after him. In April 2018, the citizens of Ribadesella celebrated the 50th anniversary of the discovery of the cave.
Because of these cave discoverers, I am motivated to dedicate myself to my life purpose. Because of the cave art creators, I am inspired to pursue beauty, truth, refinement, and excellence and share it with others.
All figures in a cave were linked to one another in some way.
In a previous post, I shared my transformative experience at Tito Bustillo Cave and started to walk you through a Personal Study Plan with the cave as a Core Source. In this post, we’ll go deeper--creating academic skills, applicational activities, and transformation!
4-Consider Questions and Quality Applications.
Before studying your Core Source, make a list of questions you would like to have answered during your study. I call these Discovery Questions, and for Tito Bustillo Cave, they may include: Who is related to cave—creators, discoverers, researchers? Why is the discovery of this cave so important? What can I, or do I, want to learn as I study? (Make a list.) Where is this cave? When was this cave created and discovered? What is the context of the discovery of the cave? What has ongoing research found? Is there anything unusual about this cave that strikes me as I learn more? It’s fun to find the answers to these questions in the sources!
