The Salty Truth

The Dead Sea - the "Lowest Point on Earth," a place where truth must be told even if reluctantly - the elements demand it, the mineral-rich atmosphere pulls it from the inchoate depths of feelings without words.

Most often the sounds are of "ahh," and "ow" - especially when the saltiest water on Earth from the Sea of Salt itself comes into contact with bites, scratches, wounds, cuts, or any other opening of the skin. Tyule ("Field Trip") to the Dead Sea was taken this week, Amy and I pictured here in the parking lot of the Mineral Beach by Ein Gedi, where soon she, Cameron and I would be slathered in the blackest of mud and losing ourselves in the honest truth, both body and soul.
