Hardly To Be Discerned

“Good and evil grow up together in the field of this world almost inseparably, and the knowledge of good is so involved and interwoven with the knowledge of evil, and in so many cunning resemblances hardly to be discerned, that those confused seeds which were imposed upon Psyche as an incessant labor to cull out and sort asunder were not more intermixed.” – John Milton, Areopagitica, 1644

  I’ve just covered my face in Dead Sea mud and it feels wonderful. It burns, but it’s a good burn…a burn that reminds me of walking gingerly into that deathly water, in the middle of the sweltering Israeli/Jordanian July desert, with feet that had just been mildly sliced up by coral at Ceasarea and then used to climb Masada. Poor little feet.
 On the upside, all those little cuts sure healed fast after their Dead Sea dunking. Perhaps pain is gain after all.  Especially in Israel…
