THE DEAD SEA - Jordan
The Dead Sea is bordered by Jordan and Israel situated at the lowest point on Earth at 1412 feet below sea level. I wanted to “swim” in it and made two subsequent trips there over the years. When I visited the first time and was in the waters, I realized the idea of swimming in this sea is a little far fetched. At most one would play in it as any small amount of back splash that would touch your eyes would really hurt. I recall slowly trying to submerge myself and every little cut I had on my body that I was not aware off, stung due to the salty body of water. I bounced and floated like one would if you were holding unto a large inflated device in the pool. The sensation felt quite unusual but fun at the same time. Try as hard as you might, one just floats and bobs in and out on top of the water.
The natural Dead Sea black mud that I’m lathered with, was once thought to have magical qualities. In truth, it is rich in sulphur and minerals which is known to have rejuvenation properties. Being tens of thousands of years old and a natural healing spa, skin disorders are often rectified or healed such as Psoriasis.

Ok, last of the series, I promise, but I'm just now realizing why I've been thinking about rooftops so much lately...and that there's an art to holding on and letting go at the same time 💖 #balance#roofnow#september#ghosthand
