Under Sodom Mountain
The Dead Sea
People have always been fascinated by the Dead Sea. Over centuries, this place has been a refuge for messiahs, zealots, martyrs, kings, and ascetics. People prayed, sinned, healed, and killed each other on its shores. They built dams and plants, drilled wells, cut the sea from any source of fresh water, and left it to die. And meanwhile, we continue praying, sinning, and killing each other, moving our beach chairs and sunshades deeper and deeper, silently following the disappearing sea.
